High Specificity and Sensitivity Canine High Specificity CA15-3
ELISA Test Kit For Research
This elisa assay kit is an Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay
(ELISA). The plate has been pre-coated with Canine CA15-3 antibody.
CA15-3 present in the sample is added and binds to antibodies
coated on the wells. And then biotinylated Canine CA15-3 Antibody
is added and binds to CA15-3 in the sample. Then Streptavidin-HRP
is added and binds to the Biotinylated CA15-3 antibody. After
incubation unbound Streptavidin-HRP is washed away during a washing
step. Substrate solution is then added and color develops in
proportion to the amount of Canine CA15-3. The reaction is
terminated by addition of acidic stop solution and absorbance is
measured at 450 nm.
Storage: Store the reagents at 2-8°C. For over 6-month storage refer to
the expiration date keep it at -20°C. Avoid repeated thaw cycles.
If individual reagents are opened it is recommended that the kit be
used within 1 month.

procedures. It’s highly recommend to read this instruction entirely
This sandwich kit is for the accurate quantitative detection of
Canine Carbohydrate Antigen 15-3 (also known as CA15-3) in serum,
plasma, cell culture supernates, cell lysates, tissue homogenates.
- Prior to use, the elisa assay kit and sample should be warmed
naturally to room temperature 30 minutes.
- This instruction must be strictly followed in the experiment.
- Once the desired number of strips has been removed, immediately
reseal the bag to protect the remain from deterioration. Cover all
reagents when not in use.
- Make sure pipetting order and rate of addition from well-to-well
when pipetting reagents.
- Pipette tips and plate sealer in hand should be clean and
disposable to avoid cross-contamination.
- Avoid using the reagents from different batches together.
- Substrate solution B is sensitive to light, don’t expose substrate
solution B to light for a long time.
- Stop solution contains acid. Please wear eye, hand and skin
protection when using this material. Avoid contact of skin or
mucous membranes with kit reagent.
- The elisa assay kit should not be used beyond the expiration date.
Serum Allow serum to clot for 10-20 minutes at room temperature.
Centrifuge at 2000-3000 RPM for 20 minutes.
Plasma Collect plasma using EDTA or heparin as an anticoagulant.
Centrifuge samples for 15 minutes at 2000-3000 RPM at 2 - 8°C
within 30 minutes of collection.
Urine Collect by sterile tube. Centrifuge at 2000-3000 RPM for
approximately 20 minutes. When collecting pleuroperitoneal fluid
and cerebrospinal fluid, please follow the procedures
Cell Culture Supernatant Collect by sterile tubes when examining secrete components.
Centrifuge at 2000-3000 RPM for approximately 20 minutes. Collect
the supernatants carefully. When examining the components within
the cell, use PBS (pH 7.2-7.4) to dilute cell suspension to the
cell concentration of approximately 1 million/ml. Damage cells
through repeated freeze-thaw cycles to let out the inside
components. Centrifuge at 2000-3000 RPM for approximately 20
Tissue and other body fluids Rinse tissues in PBS (pH 7.4) to remove excess blood thoroughly
and weigh before homogenization. Mince tissues and homogenize them
in PBS (pH7.4) with a glass homogenizer on ice. Thaw at 2-8°C or
freeze at -20°C. Centrifuge at 2000-3000 RPM for approximately 20
1. Prepare all reagents, standard solutions and samples as
instructed. Bring all reagents to room temperature before use. The
assay is performed at room temperature.
2. Determine the number of strips required for the assay. Insert
the strips in the frames for use. The unused strips should be
stored at 2-8°C.
3. Add 50μl standard to standard well. Note: Don’t add antibody to standard well because the standard solution
contains biotinylated antibody.
4. Add 40μl sample to sample wells and then add 10μl anti-CA15-3
antibody to sample wells, then add 50μl streptavidin-HRP to sample
wells and standard wells (Not blank control well). Mix well. Cover
the plate with a sealer. Incubate 60 minutes at 37°C.
5. Remove the sealer and wash the plate 5 times with wash buffer.
Soak wells with at least 0.35 ml wash buffer for 30 seconds to 1
minute for each wash. For automated washing, aspirate all wells and
wash 5 times with wash buffer, overfilling wells with wash buffer.
Blot the plate onto paper towels or other absorbent material.
6. Add 50μl substrate solution A to each well and then add 50μl
substrate solution B to each well. Incubate plate covered with a
new sealer for 10 minutes at 37°C in the dark.
7. Add 50μl Stop Solution to each well, the blue color will change
into yellow immediately.
8. Determine the optical density (OD value) of each well
immediately using a microplate reader set to 450 nm within 10
minuets after adding the stop solution.
1. Prepare all reagents, samples and standards.
2. Add sample and ELISA reagent into each well. Incubate for 1 hour
3. Wash the plate 5 times.
4. Add substrate solution A and B. Incubate for 10 minutes at 37°C.
5. Add stop solution and color develops.
6. Read the OD value within 10 minutes.
Calculation of Result
Construct a standard curve by plotting the average OD for each
standard on the vertical (Y) axis against the concentration on the
horizontal (X) axis and draw a best fit curve through the points on
the graph. These calculations can be best performed with
computer-based curve-fitting software and the best fit line can be
determined by regression analysis.
