Dilute the samples with diluent. If samples generate values outside the standard curve, the dilution factor may be varied. To exclude matrix effects the dilution factor should be at least 1:25.
Chicken IgG and chicken IgY are two different names for the same antibody. Immunoglobulin Y (abbreviated as IgY) is a type of immunoglobulin which is the major antibody in bird, reptile, and lungfish blood. It is also found in high concentrations in chicken egg yolk. As with the other immunoglobulins, IgY is a class of proteins which are formed by the immune system in reaction to certain foreign substances, and specifically recognize them. IgY is often mislabelled as Immunoglobulin G (IgG) in older literature, and sometimes even in commercial product catalogues due to its functional similarity to mammalian IgG and Immunoglobulin E (IgE).
