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

M. Zhao

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-12-14


A: we do not recommend freezing 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 GDNF for a later time, you should let the blood clot in glass tubes and separate the serum to freeze for later analysis.

Q: how long can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for measuring GDNF using the EK0363 Rat GDNF Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-10-20


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 right after 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 prevent protein degradation.

Q: Are Boster Bio recombinant proteins and antibodies sterile?

M. Perez

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-10-19


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.

Q: we need your recommendation regarding the dilution ratio of serum samples for detection of GDNF in Rat serum? I am trying to measure a few analytes and it requires 100ul of diluted samples for each well. We have limited sample quantitys so we like to dilute as much as possible.

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-08-24


A: unable to understand the physiological or pathological context of your samples we cannot recommend a dilution ratio without performing a pilot test with your samples. Here is how you can perform a pilot study on your own: perform a serial dilution of your samples on the GDNF ELISA kit to make sure you have a linear ascending curve followed by a plateau, which signifies the samples saturating the detection limit of the kit. Then you can pick the dilution ratios from samples in the linear part of the curve as your experimental dilution ratio.
If you are interested in using our ELISA service, you can also send us your sample and we will take care of everything for you. You can check our service details here: bosterbio.com/services/assay-services/ELISA-testing-service
Since you mentioned you have limited samples, our cost effective multiplex ELISA service would fit perfectly for your needs, where we can generate dozens of data points using as little as 25ul sample volume. Information on this service is also in the above link.

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

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-04-18


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.

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

D. Lee

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-06-20


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 suitable 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 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.
