DRG® Myoglobin (EIA-3955)
Revised 2 November, 2007
Enzyme Immunoassay for the Quantitative Determination of Myoglobin Concentration in Human Serum

The Myoglobin ELISA is intended for the quantitative determination of myoglobin in human serum.
Myoglobin, a heme protein with a molecular weight of approximately 17,500 Daltons is found in both cardiac and
skeletal muscle. Damage to either type of muscle following conditions such as trauma, ischemia, and diseases that
cause myopathy, is associated with the release of myoglobin into serum.1,2 Specifically, following cardiac necrosis
associated with myocardial infarction (MI), myoglobin is one of the first markers to rise above normal levels.
Myoglobin levels increase measurably above baseline within 2-4 hours post-infarct, peaking at 9-12 hours, and
returning to baseline within 24-36 hours.1,3,4,5
In the absence of skeletal muscle trauma or other factors associated with a non-cardiac related increase in circulating
myoglobin, its levels have been used as an early marker for myocardial infarct.4,6,7 A number of reports suggest
using the measurement of myoglobin as a diagnostic aid in ruling out myocardial infarction5,8 with negative
predictive values of up to 100% reported at certain time periods after the onset of symptoms.9-15 Unlike the other
cardiac enzymes such as creeatine kinase and the MB isoform (i.e., CK and CK/MB) which do not reach serum
levels until several hours post-infarction (approx. 19 hours), myoglobin levels can be expected to peak within 6 to 9
The Myoglobin Enzyme Immunoassay provides a rapid, sensitive, and reliable assay for the quantitative
measurement of myoglobin in serum. The antibodies developed for the test will determine a minimal concentration
of 5.0 ng/ml, and there is no cross-reactivity with related cardiac or skeletal enzymes.
The Myoglobin ELISA test is based on the principle of a solid phase enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.17,18 The
assay system utilizes a unique monoclonal antibody directed against a distinct antigenic determinant on the
myoglobin molecule. Mouse monoclonal anti-myoglobin antibody is used for solid phase immobilization (on the
microtiter wells). A goat anti-myoglobin antibody is in the antibody-enzyme (horseradish peroxidase) conjugate
solution. The test sample is allowed to react simultaneously with the two antibodies, resulting in the myoglobin
molecules being sandwiched between the solid phase and enzyme-linked antibodies. After a 45 minute incubation at
room temperature, the wells are washed with water to remove unbound labeled antibodies. A TMB (Tetramethyl-
benzidine) Reagent is added and incubated for 20 minutes, resulting in the development of a blue color. The color
development is stopped with the addition of Stop Solution changing the color to yellow. The concentration of
myoglobin is directly proportional to the color intensity of the test sample. Absorbance is measured
spectrophotometrically at 450 nm.

1. CAUTION: This kit contains human material. The source material used for manufacture of this component
tested negative for HBsAg, HIV 1/2 and HCV by FDA-approved methods. However, no method can completely assure absence of these agents. Therefore, all human blood products, including serum samples, should be considered potentially infectious. It is recommended that the reagents and patient samples be handled according to the OSHA Standard on Bloodborne Pathogens19 or other appropriate national biohazard safety guidelines or regulations.20-21 2. Avoid contact with 1N HCl. It may cause skin irritation and burns. If contact occurs, wash with copious amounts of water and seek medical attention if irritation persists. 3. Do not use reagents after expiration date and do not mix or use components from kits with different lot numbers.
4. Replace caps on reagents immediately. Do not switch caps.

1. Store the unopened kit at 2-8°C upon receipt and when it is not in use, until the expiration shown on the kit
label. Refer to the package label for the expiration date. 2. Keep microtiter plate in a sealed bag with desiccant to minimize exposure to damp air.

A microtiter well reader with a bandwidth of 10 nm or less and an optical density range of 0 to 3 OD or greater at
450 nm wavelength is acceptable for absorbance measurement.

2. Construct a standard curve by plotting the mean absorbance obtained for each reference standard against its concentration in ng/ml on graph paper, with absorbance values on the vertical or Y axis, and concentrations on the horizontal or X axis. 3. Use the mean absorbance values for each specimen to determine the corresponding concentration of myoglobin 4. Since the reference standards have already been pre-diluted 10-fold, there is no need for the patient samples or control sera observed values to be multiplied by the dilution factor of 10. However, if the patient samples are diluted to 100-fold, the observed values should be multiplied by 10.

1. Reliable and reproducible results will be obtained when the assay procedure is carried out with a complete
understanding of the package insert instructions and with adherence to good laboratory practice. 2. Diagnostic results obtained from the Myoglobin ELISA should be used in conjuction with other diagnostic procedures and information available to the physician.; e.g., additional clinical testing, ECG, symptoms, and clinical observations. 3. The wash procedure is critical. Insufficient washing will result in poor precision and falsely elevated absorbance 4. Patient samples may contain human anti-mouse antibodies (HAMA) which are capable of giving falsely elevated results with assays that utilize mouse monoclonal antibodies.

to minimize interference from HAMA-containing specimens; nevertheless complete elimination of this interference from all patient specimens cannot be guaranteed. 5. Test results that are inconsistent with the clinical picture and patient history should be interpreted with caution.
1. Normal serum myoglobin levels range from 12 to 100 ng/ml. Values increase slightly with age.22
2. Using the Myoglobin ELISA, an evaluation of the clinical data was conducted to determine the normal expected
value of the kit. THe study yielded normal range values in agreement with industry standards. Eighty-three (83) apparently healthy adults were assayed using the test to establish the normal expected value. The range was found to be between 8.1 and 54.5 ng/ml myoglobin. 3. Each facility should establish its own reference intervals for myoglobin as performed on ELISA test. Other factors should also be considered in the diagnosis of myocardial infarction, as any condition resulting in skeletal
or cardiac muscle damage may potentially increase myoglobinlevels above the expected normal range.
Serial sampling may be required to detect elevated levels.

1. Clinical Performance
A clinical investigation was conducted to determine the accuracy of the Myoglobin ELISA as compared to the Abbott AxSym Myoglobin MEIA. The data is presented below. A statistical study using 150 clinical patient serum samples, ranging in myoglobin concentration from 3.7 ng/ml to 919.8 ng/ml as analyzed using the Myoglobin ELISA (13.0 ng/ml to 1011.0 ng/ml Abbott Myoglobin MEIA), demonstrated equivalent correlation with the AxSym Myoglobin kit as shown below.
2. Sensitivity
The lowest detectable level of myoglobin by this assay is estimated to be 5 ng/ml. 3. Hook Effect
No high-dose hook effect is observed in this test with patient sample concentrations up to 10,000 ng/ml.
4. Precision
Within-run precision was determined by replicate determinations of five different serum samples in one assay. Within-assay variability is shown below: DRG International Inc., USA

The material was further diluted with the Myoglobin Sample Diluent and served as “Standard Stock Solution” for
preparing myoglobin reference Standard Sets. The target value of the “Standard Stock Solution” was confirmed by
the Abbott AxSym Myoglobin immunoassay.
