Questions & Answers

How long do the kits last?

  • The kit expiry date is displayed on the kit box plus all of the kit components within the box. Unopened, all of the components of the kit have an expiry 12 months after the date of manufacture when stored at 2-8°C.
  • After opening, any unused diluted wash buffer can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 10 days.
  • Any unused microplate strips should be returned to the foil pouch with the desiccant sachet and the seal closed completely, then stored at 2-8°C.

Is the kit only for automated use or can it be used manually?

  • All of our ELISA’s can be fully automated on our Solus DS2 Automated Laboratory ELISA units, meaning you can walk away from the test once it is set up. However, the kit will perform equally well if the assay is carried out manually. The kit instructions give you all of the details that you need to do this.
