10 Customer Q&As for Human TNFSF14/LIGHT ELISA Kit PicoKine™

Question

Do you know if TNFSF14 can be measured in mother’s milk sample using the EK0990 kit?

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-10-08

Answer

Human TNFSF14/LIGHT ELISA Kit PicoKine EK0990 has been tested and validated for cell culture supernates, serum, plasma(heparin, EDTA) and saliva. We have not tested EK0990 using mother’s milk samples. In theory, the ELISA kit will work for all sample types if the target protein is present at a level that falls within the linear range of the ELISA kit detection range. We guarantee the kit to work on the sample types that we have tested. For sample types that we have not tested for, we suggest you run pilot experiments to decide the optimal sample dilution.

Question

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

T. Wright

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-08-11

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 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 view 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 LIGHT using the EK0990 Human LIGHT Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-06-01

Answer

A: Boster Bio does not assess sample stability. Variations in sample collection, processing, and storage may change the stabilityof samples. It is recommend to assay sample immediately after 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.

Question

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

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-03-29

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 impact immunoreactivity, so if lysate is not a validated sample type, care must be taken in sample preparation and validation.

Question

Q: What is the optimal O.D. value for LIGHT ELISA kit? I performed your LIGHT 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 LIGHT even though the O.D. values are not very high?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-01-16

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. what you should focus on is whether your sample O.D. values are statistically significantly higher than your blank values. in the example mentioned, 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 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 LIGHT ELISA kit to have sensitivity of 10pg/ml, that means the minimum amount of LIGHT that can be declared/interpreted as positive by the above standard is 10pg/ml.

Question

Q: how to thaw whole blood sample for LIGHT ELISA after freezing?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-12-18

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 LIGHT for a later time, you should let the blood clot in glass tubes and separate the serum to freeze for later analysis.
