General Serum Diluent is formulated for diluting goat, rabbit, mouse, avian, and human sera, as well as mouse ascites fluid and cell culture media, for testing in sandwich ELISA configurations. This product can also be used for dilution of many types of serum samples, including mammalian and chicken, tested in antigen-down ELISA formats.
Hyper-immunized serum samples contain nonspecific IgG antibody that may interfere with the titration. Proprietary additives have been incorporated into the General Serum Diluent formulation to minimize nonspecific binding interactions of the nonspecific IgG in the samples, thus decreasing assay background noise. General Serum Diluent may also be used for dilutions of the antigen standard for use in antibody capture sandwich ELISA formats.
