6 Customer Q&As for Human Neurotrophin-3 ELISA Kit PicoKine™

Question

Q: Can NT-3 ELISA Kits be used with tissue homogenates (or other non-validated sample types)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-07-27

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

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-04-19

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 vary slightly by kit so please refer to each datasheet for details.

Question

Q: what is the protocol regarding preparation of cell lysates prepared for use in Picokine® ELISA kits?

P. Walker

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-01-13

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: Are Boster Bio recombinant proteins and antibodies sterile?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-03-31

Answer

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.

Question

Q: for how much duration can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for analysis NT-3 using the EK0472 Human NT-3 Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-04-02

Answer

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

Question

Q: What is the optimal O.D. value for NT-3 ELISA kit? I performed your NT-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. is it safe to say these samples contain NT-3 even though the O.D. values are not very high?

D. Chen

Verified customer

Asked: 2014-10-10

Answer

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. an important assessment should be 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 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 NT-3 ELISA kit to have sensitivity of 2pg/ml, that means the minimum amount of NT-3 that can be declared/interpreted as positive by the above standard is 2pg/ml.
