Intra Assay Consistency & Inter Assay Consistency

We measured random samples of Human MMP-3/Stromelysin-1 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.

4 Customer Q&As for Human MMP-3/Stromelysin-1 ELISA Kit PicoKine™


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

B. Parker

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-05-12


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

Q: What is the optimal O.D. value for MMP-3 ELISA kit? I used your MMP-3 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 MMP-3 even though the O.D. values are not very high?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-04-12


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 the above 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 relation 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 converting 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 MMP-3 ELISA kit to have sensitivity of 10pg/ml, that means the minimum amount of MMP-3 that can be declared/interpreted as positive by the above standard is 10pg/ml.

Q: how to thaw whole blood sample for MMP-3 ELISA after freezing?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-01-16


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 MMP-3 for a later time, you should let the blood clot in glass tubes and collect the serum to freeze for later use.

Do these ELISA kits (Human MMP-2 & Human MMP-3) use the same sample diluent? What kind of chemicals are present in this diluent?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2016-07-07


Yes. The diluent contains NaCl, Tris, BSA and preservative.
