The the contents must be diluted with 580 mL of distilled water and assay utilizes the two-site “sandwich” technique with two selected mixed well. Upon dilution this yields a working wash solution containing a surfactant in phosphate buffered saline with a non- azide and non-mercury based preservative. The diluted wash Assay standards, controls and test samples are directly added to buffer should be stored at room temperature and is stable until wells of a microplate that is coated with streptavidin. Subsequently, a mixture of biotinylated GLP-1 (7-36) specific antibody and a horseradish peroxidate (HRP) conjugated GLP-1 (7-36) specific antibody is added to each well. After the first incubation period, a One bottle contains 22 mL of tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) with “sandwich” immunocomplex of “Streptavidin – Biotin-Antibody – stabilized hydrogen peroxide.

Allow the standards EDI Kit insert: Active GLP-1 (7-36) Specific ELISA / version 4 /2008-12 It is recommended that all standards, controls and unknown samples be assayed in duplicate. The average absorbance reading of each duplicate should be used for data reduction and the calculation of results. For samples with higher than level 5 standard, it is recommended to measure diluted the specimen with an appropriate GLP-1 free human serum matrix for a more accurate report. Keep light sensitive reagents in the original amber bottles. Store any unused streptavidin coated strips in the foil zipper bag with desiccant to protect from moisture. Careful technique and use of properly calibrated pipetting devices are necessary to ensure reproducibility of the test. Incubation times or temperatures other than those stated Avoid air bubbles in the microwell as this could result in lower binding efficiency and higher CV% of duplicate All reagents should be mixed gently and thoroughly prior Calculate the average absorbance for each pair of Subtract the average absorbance of the STD 1 (0 ng/mL) from the average absorbance of all other readings to The standard curve is generated by the corrected absorbances of all standard levels on the ordinate against the standard concentration on the abscissa using point-to- point or log-log paper.

If log-log graphic paper or computer assisted data reduction program utilizing logarithmic transformation are used, sample having corrected absorbance between the 2nd standard and Since there is no Gold Standard concentration or the next highest standard should be calculated by the formula: international standard available for GLP-1 (7-36) measurement, the values of assay standards were established using a highly purified GLP-1 (7-36) peptide and validated by Epitope Diagnostics. Results obtained with different assay methods or kits cannot be used For unknown sample value read directly from the assay that is greater than assay standard level-5, it is recommend measuring a diluted sample for more accurate A typical absorbance data and the resulting standard curve from this GLP-1 ELISA are represented. This curve should not be used in Bacterial or fungal contamination of serum specimens or lieu of standard curve run with each assay. reagents, or cross contamination between reagents may Water deionized with polyester resins may inactivate the To assure the validity of the results each assay should include adequate controls with known GLP-1 (7-36) levels. The sensitivity of this High Sensitive GLP-1 (7-36) ELISA as determined by the 95% confidence limit on 12 duplicate determination of zero standard is about 0.3 pmol/L. By linear dilution of assay standard level 2 (1.82 pmol/L) to 0.91 pmol/L and 0.46 pmol/L, the assay can clearly detect both of them. Therefore, a realistic detection limit of 0.5 pmol/L is easily achieved by this assay. EDI Kit insert: Active GLP-1 (7-36) Specific ELISA / version 4 /2008-12 3.
