Recommended Sample Dilution Ratios

According to our internal validation assays using this ELISA kit, to detect Matrilin-2, Dilution ratio of 1:1, concentration in serum is around 1000pg/ml around 300pg/ml.

Intra Assay Consistency & Inter Assay Consistency

We measured random samples of Human Matrilin-2 ELISA Kit PicoKine™ within the same batch/lot to ensure the consistency of the kits' performances. ELISA intra assay consistency is measured using wells from the same plate/assay kit. ELISA inter assay consistency is measured using wells from different plates from the same batch production/lot.

Question

Q: how are cell lysates prepared for use in Picokine® ELISA kits?

G. King

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-12-31

Answer

A: in 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 can 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 Matrilin-2 ELISA after freezing?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-11-10

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 Matrilin-2 for a later time, you should let the blood clot in glass tubes and collect the serum to freeze for later use.

Question

Q: Can Matrilin-2 ELISA Kits be used with tissue homogenates (or other non-validated sample types)?

B. Brown

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-09-15

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 required. 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 evaluated 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: how many samples can be assayed in a Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-07-04

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 depends upon the kit used so please refer to each datasheet for details.

Question

Q: for how much duration can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for analysis Matrilin-2 using the EK2020 Human Matrilin-2 Picokine® ELISA Kit?

C. Carter

Verified customer

Asked: 2014-08-21

Answer

A: Boster Bio does not assess sample stability. Variations in sample collection, processing, and storage may alter the stabilityof samples. It is recommend to assay sample immediately after collection when possible, or aliquot into single use volumes and store samples frozen. avoid repetitive freeze-thaw cycles with the stored samples in order to limit protein degradation.
