8 Customer Q&As for Human IL-20/Interleukin-20 ELISA Kit PicoKine™

Question

Q: can you tell me how to prepare cell lysates prepared for use in Picokine® ELISA kits?

L. Gandhi

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-04-02

Answer

A: for those Picokine® ELISAs where cell or tissue lysate is a validated sample type, sample preparation instructions for lysate are included in the product insert. Components in lysate and lysis buffer may affect immunoreactivity, so if lysate is not a validated sample type, care must be taken in sample preparation and validation.

Question

Q: how can I thaw whole blood sample for IL-20 ELISA after freezing?

M. Anderson

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-02-20

Answer

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 IL-20 for a later time, you should let the blood clot in glass tubes and collect the serum to freeze for later use.

Question

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

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-12-06

Answer

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

Does EK0599 cross-react with Human IL-20RA?

EK0599 does not cross-react with Human IL-20RA.

Question

Q: if the enzyme conjugated IL-20 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 IL-20 antigen?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-09-13

Answer

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.

Question

Q: Can IL-20 ELISA Kits be used with tissue homogenates (or other non-validated sample types)?

C. Smith

Verified customer

Asked: 2016-09-26

Answer

A: Unfortunately, Boster Bio has not routinely validated tissue homogenates as a sample type for ELISA kits. This does not mean that ELISA kits are not suitable for other sample types than we have tested: it means further investigation is a must. One will need to perform a spike and recovery study to determine if an unvalidated sample type will work with a particular kit. To perform a spike and recovery experiment, one should divide a sample into two aliquots. In one of the aliquots, the user should spike in a known amount of the kit standard. a dilution series is performed comparing the spiked versus the unspiked sample. Generally, samples with expected recovery and linearity between 80-120% are considered acceptable. This method can be used to validate any sample type that has not been assessd by Boster Bio. for a more detailed spike and recovery protocol, please contact technical support.
Note: acceptable ranges should be determined individually by each laboratory. Additionally, technical support can help determine if a buffer component is not compatible with a given ELISA kit. please see the Citations tab on the product webpage for peer-reviewed papers utilizing a wide range of sample types. We also have an innovator's reward program where if the user validates our ELISA kits in applications or samples previously not validated by Boster Bio or other users, and share such information with us by submit a review, we will reward the user's efforts with a free antibody or ELISA kit from our catalog. Biocompare.com will also give $20 Amazon giftcard as an additional reward, if the review is submitted there as well.

Question

Q: for how much duration can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for quantification IL-20 using the EK0599 Human IL-20 Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2014-05-20

Answer

A: Boster Bio does not evaluate sample stability. Variations in sample collection, processing, and storage may change the stabilityof samples. It is recommend to assay sample on priority basis collection when possible, or aliquot into single use volumes and store samples frozen. limit repetitive freeze-thaw cycles with the stored samples to prevent protein degradation.
