The microplate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to Eosinophil Chemotactic Factor (ECF). Standards or samples are then added to the appropriate microplate wells with a biotin-conjugated antibody specific to Eosinophil Chemotactic Factor (ECF). Next, Avidin conjugated to Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to each microplate well and incubated. Then the mixture of substrate A and B is added to generate glow light emission kinetics. Upon plate development, the intensity of the emitted light is proportional to the Eosinophil Chemotactic Factor (ECF) level in the sample or standard.;
Sensitivity:The minimum detectable dose of this kit is typically less than 0.49pg/mL
plasma and other biological fluids
Assay length:2h, 40min
This assay has high sensitivity and excellent specificity for detection of Eosinophil Chemotactic Factor (ECF).
No significant cross-reactivity or interference between Eosinophil Chemotactic Factor (ECF) and analogues was observed.
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): 3 samples with low, middle and high level Eosinophil Chemotactic Factor (ECF) were tested 20 times on one plate, respectively.
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): 3 samples with low, middle and high level Eosinophil Chemotactic Factor (ECF) were tested on 3 different plates, 8 replicates in each plate.
CV(%) = SD/meanX100
The stability of kit is determined by the loss rate of activity. The loss rate of this kit is less than 5% within the expiration date under appropriate storage condition.
To minimize extra influence on the performance, operation procedures and lab conditions, especially room temperature, air humidity, incubator temperature should be strictly controlled. It is also strongly suggested that the whole assay is performed by the same operator from the beginning to the end.
