"Works Well For Detection Of Gal-1 Over A Broad Range Of Concentration"



"Works Well For Detection Of Gal-1 Over A Broad Range Of Concentration"

--Mahesh Raundhal, Weill Cornell Medicine, Medicine, Postdoctoral Fellow

Applications ELISA
Sample Human ovarian cancer ascites
Detection --

"Human ovarian cancer ascites samples were tested for presence of Galectin-1 protein. Depending on the donor, ascites samples were found to have varying concentrations of Gal-1. Straightforward and easy to use once a general idea of Gal-1 concentration in sample of interest is optimized." (Customer’s Tip: "If using for the first time, plate samples at least 3-4 dilutions to get consistent results among samples at the same dilution.")

9 Customer Q&As for Human Galectin-1 ELISA Kit PicoKine™


Q: we need your recommendation regarding the dilution ratio of serum samples for detection of Galectin-1 in Human cell lysates? I am trying to measure a a number of analytes and it requires 100ul of diluted samples for each well. We have limited sample volumes so we like to dilute as much as possible.

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-09-23


A: unable to understand the physiological or pathological context of your samples we cannot recommend a dilution ratio without performing a pilot test with your samples. Here is how you can perform a pilot study on your own: perform a serial dilution of your samples on the Galectin-1 ELISA kit to make sure you have a linear ascending curve followed by a plateau, which signifies the samples saturating the detection limit of the kit. Then you can pick the dilution ratios from samples in the linear part of the curve as your experimental dilution ratio.
If you are interested in using our ELISA service, you can also send us your sample and we will take care of everything for you. You can check our service details here:
Since you mentioned you have limited samples, our cost effective multiplex ELISA service would fit perfectly for your needs, where we can generate dozens of data points using as little as 25ul sample volume. Information on this service is also in the above link.

Does EK0762 react with mouse?

Q: which procedure should I follow in order to thaw whole blood sample for Galectin-1 ELISA after freezing?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-03-15


A: do not freeze and thaw whole blood. erythrocytes are fragile and, if frozen and thawed, will undergo hemolysis rendering the samples useless. To keep your blood samples to test Galectin-1 for a later time, you should let the blood clot in glass tubes and collect the serum to freeze for later use.

Q: how many samples can be assayed in a Picokine® ELISA Kit?

A. Anand

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-11-11


A: The Picokine® ELISA Kits will generally run a 7-point standard curve, non-specific binding wells, and 39 samples in duplicate. this may vary slightly by kit so please refer to each datasheet for details.

Q: What is the optimal O.D. value for Galectin-1 ELISA kit? I used your Galectin-1 ELISA on serum samples. For my positive control, I received an O.D. value of 0.826, while my negative control received a value of 0.136. I obtained both of these controls from the ELISA kit, where your kit's typical data shows O.D. values much higher than my positive control and your background is lower. My samples O.D. values are around 0.225 and the highest is only 0.357. can I consider these samples contain Galectin-1 even though the O.D. values are not very high?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-02-23


A: The absolute O.D. values may change according to incubation time. The more you incubate the higher the O.D. values are going to be. what you should focus on is whether your sample O.D. values are statistically significantly higher than your blank values. in your example, you could extend your development time in the substrate incubation step to obtain higher O.D. values, as long as your negative controls' O.D. values are not increasing faster in proportion to your positive controls. normally, a sample with O.D. value 2 standard deviations higher than your negative controls can be considered positive. We calculate the sensitivity of this ELISA kit by changeing cutoff O.D. value, calculated as the average of 20 negative controls plus 2 standard deviations of the 20 negative controls, into a concentration. in other words, when we claim this Galectin-1 ELISA kit to have sensitivity of 15pg/ml, that means the minimum amount of Galectin-1 that can be declared/interpreted as positive by the above standard is 15pg/ml.

Q: can I use citrate plasma as samples in Human Galectin-1 Picokine® ELISA Kit (Catalog # EK0762)?

H. Miller

Verified customer

Asked: 2016-09-19


A: Chelating agents such as EDTA, Heparin and Citrate can sequester metal ions from the functional domain of Galectin-1 causing degradation of its protein structure. Galectin-1 may be denatured as a result and may compromise the assay's measurements. The chilating sites could also be too close to the epitopes a must for detection and block the antigen antibody reaction. We have tested the Galectin-1 ELISA, treating samples with a number of anticoagulants and decided that heparin or EDTA can be used for treatment of blood/plasma samples. Do not use other anticoagulents when collecting samples.

Q: Are Boster Bio recombinant proteins and antibodies sterile?

T. Nelson

Verified customer

Asked: 2016-01-22


A: although the vials are bottled using aseptic techniques, heat-treated vials, and sterile stock solutions, they are not considered or guaranteed to be sterile. If sterile material is required for an experiment, the material can be filtered through a 0.2 micron filter designed for use with biological fluids.
