Storage and Stability

This 8-Isoprostane ELISA will obtain optimal results if all of the components are stored at the proper temperature prior to use. Items should be stored at the designated temperatures upon receipt of this kit.
All components of the kit are stored below -20°C and should not be re-frozen and thawed more than necessary.

Assay Background

The isoprostanes are a family of eicosanoids of non-enzymatic origin produced by the random oxidation of tissues phospholipids by oxygen radicals.  A recent NIH-sponsored study on Biomarkers of Oxidative Stress has indicated that 8-isoprostane is the best index of oxidative injury in a well-accepted oxidant stress rat model (1,2).  In addition, plasma 8-isoprostane levels were found to be elevated in elderly subjects with severe hypertension (3) and in urine from subjects with high fat diet-induced liver steatosis (4).

This 8-Isoprostane ELISA Assay kit can be used for the determination of 8-isoprostane in diluted urine, serum, plasma, cells, and tissues following proper isolation and purification of the eicosanoid from the isoprostane-containing sample.

Assay Principle

  1. Load 200 microliters of Sample Dilution Buffer into the blank (BL) wells and 100 microliters of Sample Dilution Buffer into the maximum binding (BO) wells.
  2. Load 100 microliters of each of the standards into the appropriate wells.
  3. Load 100 microliters of the diluted 8-isoprostane-HRP conjugate in the BO wells, the standard wells, and the sample wells.  Do NOT add HRP conjugate into the BL wells.
  4. Incubate the plate at room temperature for two hours.
  5. Wash the plate three times with 400 microliters of the diluted Wash Buffer per well.
  6. After the last of the three wash cycles pat the plate dry onto some paper toweling.
  7. Add 200 microliters of the TMB substrate to all of the wells (including BL wells)./li>
  8. Incubate the plate at room temperature for 15-30 minutes.
  9. Add 50 micoliters of 2 N sulfuric acid to all of the wells.
  10. Read the plate at 450 nm.
