Test Principle

This ELISA kit uses the Sandwich-ELISA principle. The micro ELISA plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to Human Aβ1-40. Standards or samples are added to the micro ELISA plate wells and combined with the specific antibody. Then a biotinylated detection antibody specific for Human Aβ1-40 and Avidin-Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) conjugate are added successively to each micro plate well and incubated. Free components are washed away. The substrate solution is added to each well. Only those wells that contain Human Aβ1-40, biotinylated detection antibody and Avidin-HRP conjugate will appear blue in color. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of stop solution and the color turns yellow. The optical density (OD) is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450 nm ± 2 nm. The OD value is proportional to the concentration of Human Aβ1-40. You can calculate the concentration of Human Aβ1-40 in the samples by comparing the OD of the samples to the standard curve.

D******************ASubmitted [ May 03 2022 ]

Asked: Hi, I am planning to buy this kit (E-EL-H0542) for amyloid-beta 1-40 detection from my fibroblast cell culture. The term cell-culture media used in this manual refers to the supernatant culture media, right? And to double confirm, we cannot use cell lysate for this kit, right? I hope you will help me with the proper sample method I can use along with this kit.
