D.Plate Coating

1 Dilute mAB211 1:1000 in Coating Buffer to approximately 2.5 μg/ml.

2 Add 100ul of mAB211 dilution from step 1 to each well of microtiter plate. Incubate overnight (o/n) @ 4°C sealed plate sealer.

3 Wash plates 3x w/ PBST. Aspirate and blot dry with Kimwipe.

4 Store individually in plastic bags @ -20°C. Plates may be stored for


1. Thaw plates before opening bags to prevent condensation in the wells.

2. Add 200ul Blocking Buffer to each well and incubate 1 hour @ room temperature (RT).

3. Wash 3x w/ PBST. Aspirate and blot dry.

4. Prepare standards and samples in PBS.

5. Add 100ul of dilutions to wells.

6. Incubate plate 2-3h @ RT.

7. Incubate o/n @ 4C.

8. Wash 3x w/ PBST. Aspirate and blot dry.

9. Dilute secondary antibody FL140 in PBST + 0.5% Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA).

10. Add 100ul diluted Ab to each well. Incubate 2h @ RT.

11. Wash 3x w/ PBST. Aspirate and blot dry.

12. Prepare Peroxidase Substrate immediately before use.

13. Add 100ul Peroxidase Substrate to each well and incubate 10min in the dark @ RT.

14. Add 100ul Stopper Solution to wells and read plate at 490nm.
