Background of Erythropoietin/EPO

Erythropoietin, EPO, also known as hematopoietin or hemopoietin, is a glycoprotein hormone that controls erythropoiesis, or red blood cell production. It is a cytokine for erythrocyte (red blood cell) precursors in the bone marrow. Its gene is mapped to 7q22. It is said that the EPO gene encodes a deduced 193-amino acid propolypeptide. This hormone can be found in kidney and liver. It is the hormone that regulates red blood cell production. And it plays an important role in the brain's response to neuronal injury. What's more, EPO is also involved in the wound healing process.

12 Customer Q&As for Mouse EPO/Erythropoietin ELISA Kit PicoKine®


Q: for how much duration can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for measurement Erythropoietin using the EK0333 Mouse Erythropoietin Picokine® ELISA Kit?

W. Patel

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-11-26


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 on-stat 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.

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

K. Davis

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-08-24


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. a point of focus 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 Erythropoietin ELISA kit to have sensitivity of 15pg/ml, that means the minimum amount of Erythropoietin that can be declared/interpreted as positive by the above standard is 15pg/ml.

Q: which procedure should I follow in order to thaw whole blood sample for Erythropoietin ELISA after freezing?

H. Hill

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-01-17


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

Q: Are Boster Bio recombinant proteins and antibodies sterile?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2014-09-21


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.

Answered: 2014-09-21


Q: if the enzyme conjugated Erythropoietin 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 Erythropoietin antigen?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2014-09-12


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.
