May the ID Screen® ELISAs be used with robots? ( 4 July 2013 )

Yes, our kits have been used successfully with robots in many countries.

Is it possible to inter-change reagents from different batches or kits? ( )

Yes.  Non-biological components (wash, buffers, stop, substrate) may be interchanged between products and between batches.  As much as possible, however, use the reagents delivered with the kit.

Do I need to include a reference blank on my plate? ( )

No. A blank was included in the past in order to account for spontaneous TMB substrate colour change, or because the microplate plastic was not completely transparent.

Commercial kits no longer require the use of such a blank, as both the quality of plastic and TMB have improved over the years.
