Creatine kinase (CK) is found in 3 isotypes: CK-MM which is primarily found in skeletal muscle; CK-BB which is found in brain and smooth muscle tissues; and CK-MB which is predominantly found in the myocardium. CK-MB is released into the bloodstream following a heart attack and can be seen at elevated levels in the blood for a few days.
Our Human CK-MB ELISA Kit specifically detects the CK-MB form of Creatine Kinase in serum or plasma samples as well as in lysates. The kit does not detect the CK-MM or CK-BB isotypes. Each kit provides sufficient reagents for 96 wells including standards and unknown samples.
