10 Customer Q&As for Human HGF/Hepatocyte growth factor ELISA Kit PicoKine™


Q: if the enzyme conjugated HGF antibodies are mixed with the substrate, will that change the substrate into the enzymatic reaction product? Or the enzyme function is only activated when the antibody is attached with the HGF antigen?

D. Sunder

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-04-06


A: The enzyme is always active. Avoid contaminating the substrate with enzyme prior to the incubation otherwise it compromises the assay with false positive signal.

Q: how do I analyze ELISA data? I have performed HGF level in plasma.

Q: Are Boster Bio recombinant proteins and antibodies sterile?

K. Kaur

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-09-17


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 a must for an experiment, the material can be filtered through a 0.2 micron filter designed for use with biological fluids.

Q: can I use heparin plasma as samples in Human HGF Picokine® ELISA Kit (Catalog # EK0369)?

C. Jha

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-06-21


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

I hope that you week is going well! I have a customer interested in this product but has a few questions. Could you assist? Could you let me know if: 1) the antibodies are monoclonal or polyclonal? 2) Whether cross species reactivity to mouse has been checked? 3) Does this kit work on tissue lysate?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-07-21


The capture antibody is monoclonal antibody from mouse, the detection antibody is polyclonal antibody from goat. EK0369 doesn't cross react with mouse.

Q: can you recommend the dilution ratio of serum samples for detection of HGF in Human plasma? 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.

A. Campbell

Verified customer

Asked: 2014-11-29


A: having little idea about 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 HGF 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.
