5 Customer Q&As for Rat IL-4/Interleukin-4 ELISA Kit PicoKine™

Question

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

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-05-25

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: can you tell me how to prepare cell lysates prepared for use in Picokine® ELISA kits?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-10-31

Answer

A: in those Picokine® ELISAs where cell or tissue lysate is a validated sample type, sample preparation instructions for lysate are present in the product insert. Components in lysate and lysis buffer can change 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: 2018-09-10

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: Can IL-4 ELISA Kits be used with tissue homogenates (or other non-validated sample types)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2014-02-01

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 suitable for other sample types than we have tested: it means further investigation is a must. 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.
