Validation of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for measurement of faecal cortisol in fish


Quanti¢cation of glucocorticoid (GC) levels in faeces has become an established method for the non-invasive assessment of adrenocortical activity. These hormones are frequently determined in plasma samples as parameters of adrenal activity and response to stress. Because GCs are metabolized and excreted with both intact hormone and their metabolites present… (More)
