Our new ELISA kit for the quantification of Bovine Lactoferrine is commercially available
Bovine lactoferrin (bLF) is a 80 kDa glycoprotein able to bind iron (Fe3+). It is found in most of the biological fluids, mainly in milk, and plays key roles in the defense mechanism of the organism. A lot of biological activities have been reported for bLF: antimicrobial, immuno-modulator, anti-tumoral, absorption of iron or bone growth. Anti-oxydant, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory activities have also been reported for bLF.
In November 2012, bLF purified from milk and whey was approved as a « Novel Food Ingredient » by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Accordingly bLF can now be used as an additive in many food products such as infant formula and dairy products.
Our ELISA kit for bovine lactoferrin is intended for:
- bovine colostrum and powders
- bovine milk and powder
- bovine serum
This kit is intended for research and manufacturing use only, not for diagnostic uses.
