Neptune Assay Diluent is formulated to address nonspecific binding issues with human, porcine, or bovine serum samples. This non-mammalian assay additive works to enhance the specific anti-analyte/antigen antibody signal without denaturing the plate-adsorbed antigen molecules. This diluent is suitable for use with serum and plasma samples, and best for use in antigen-down ELISA formats.
The Neptune Assay Diluent formulation includes non-mammalian protein and proprietary detergent additives to help minimize nonspecific background signal. This diluent also contains a proprietary calcium chelating agent designed to inhibit interference from complement and thrombin present in serum and plasma samples. Neptune Assay Diluent does not contain any immunoglobulin-based components that could interfere with anti-IgG signal-generating formats. An antimicrobial agent is included in the formulation to allow for bench-top use and storage stability.
