Question

Q: how much samples can be assayed in a Picokine® ELISA Kit?

K. Anand

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-09-27

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 IL-4 using the EK0405 Mouse IL-4 Picokine® ELISA Kit?

B. Banerjee

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-06-06

Answer

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

Question

Q: What is the optimal O.D. value for IL-4 ELISA kit? I used your IL-4 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 IL-4 even though the O.D. values are not very high?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-01-02

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. considering your assay, 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. typically, 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 IL-4 ELISA kit to have sensitivity of 1pg/ml, that means the minimum amount of IL-4 that can be declared/interpreted as positive by the above standard is 1pg/ml.
