Heparin, also known as unfractionated heparin (UFH), is a drug used as an anticoagulant (blood thinner). Specifically, it is used to treat and prevent deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and arterial thromboembolism. It is also used in the treatment of heart attacks and unstable angina. It is given by injection into a vein. Other uses include indoor test tubes and kidney dialysis machines.
The BioVision QuickDetect Heparin ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA for measuring the amount of human heparin in serum, plasma, cell culture, and other biological fluids. The entire process can be done in 90 minutes with a single incubation and a wash step respectively, resulting in fewer handling steps, fewer errors, and more consistent results.
Acetylcholine (ACh) is an organic chemical that works in the brain and body of many types of animals, including mice, as a neurotransmitter, a chemical released by nerve cells to send signals to other cells. Acetylcholine is also used as a neurotransmitter in the autonomic nervous system, both as an internal transmitter of the sympathetic nervous system and as an end product released by the parasympathetic nervous system. In the brain, acetylcholine functions as a neurotransmitter and as a neuromodulator.
The brain contains several cholinergic areas, each with different functions. They play an important role in arousal, attention, memory, and motivation. The BioVision Acetylcholine ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA for the quantitative measurement of ACh in mouse serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants in 90 minutes. The density of the color is proportional to the amount of acetylcholine captured from the samples.
