DescriptionMILLIPLEX MAP Rat Pituitary Magnetic Bead Panel - Endocrine Multiplex Assay
OverviewMILLIPLEX MAP Rat Pituitary Magnetic Bead Panel is used for the simultaneous quantification of the following 7 rat pituitary hormones: Growth Hormone (GH), Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH), Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Prolactin, Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH), and Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF).

This kit may be used for the analysis of all or any combination of the above pituitary hormones in rat serum or plasma samples, rat tissue extract, or cell/tissue culture supernatant samples.
Background InformationCalled the “master gland” because it controls many other endocrine glands, the pituitary gland secretes a number of key hormones that play important roles in the regulation of metabolism, growth, and reproduction. Millipore’s Rat Pituitary Magnetic Bead Panel enables you to explore various aspects of reproduction, growth, metabolic homeostasis, and pituitary-related diseases such as acromegaly, growth hormone deficiency, diabetes insipidus and pituitary tumors.
