Immunoassay for quantitative determination of human MPO (myeloperoxidase) in serum or plasma.
Format: 1 x 96 wells
Samples: Serum, plasma
Sample volume: 25 μL
Assay range: 3,5 - 200 μg/L
Detection limit: ≤ 3 μg/L
Incubation: (min) 60+60+15
The detection limit is ≤ 3 μg/L as determined with the
methodology described in ISO11843-Part 4.
Recovery upon addition is 84 - 98 % (89 %).
Recovery upon dilution is 94 - 114 % (101 %).
Each sample was analyzed in 4 replicates on 33 different
|Sample||Mean Value||Coefficient of variation|
|(μg/L)||within assay %||between assay %||total assay %|
Serum and EDTA plasma can be used.
Sample type will affect the level of MPO measured in a sample. The highest levels will be obtained with serum samples. The level of MPO increases continuously from blood collection to centrifugation and serum isolation, due to disintegration of MPO containing cells. To obtain comparable values from each sample it is therefore of great importance to treat all samples the same, i.e. let them clot an equal amount of time before centrifugation.
EDTA plasma samples will give lower levels of MPO, but is preferable if the aim is to measure circulating levels of MPO. The EDTA has a strong chelating effect and prevents degranulation of blood cells.
Grossly lipemic, icteric or haemolyzed samples do not interfere in the assay.
Mercodia MPO ELISA is a solid phase two-site enzyme
immunoassay based on the sandwich technique, in which two
monoclonal antibodies are directed against separate antigenic
determinants on the MPO molecule. MPO in the sample reacts
with anti-MPO antibodies bound to microtitration wells and
peroxidase-conjugated anti-MPO antibodies in the solution.
Summary of protocol
The following cross-reactions have been tested:
|TPO||< 0.01 %|
|CRP||< 0.01 %|
|a 1-antitrypsin||< 0.01 %|
