Frequently Asked Questions
How can I select which product to use: EL-16-03 or EL-16-06?
Typically, decision whether to use EL-16-03 or EL-16-06 will depend on the application and/or assay design. If an assay is designed to detect antibodies to EBV VCA gp125, then EL-16-06 should be considered first. If the assay is designed to detect antibodies against other EBV proteins, such as EBNA and EA, then EL-16-03 should be considered. Both products can be used for conjugation to solid particles; however, labelling EL-16-06 with detecting moieties (e.g. HRP or antibodies) is likely to give better labelling efficiency due to its high purity.

Can your product be used for coating to solid surfaces?
Yes, both EL-16-03 and EL-16-06 can be used for coating to solid surfaces such as ELISA plates, microparticles (nanogold, latex, magnetic, paramagnetic, etc). EL-16-03 contains low amount of detergent which can be removed if required prior to conjugation. EL-16-06 can be used for conjugation as supplied.
How should I handle EBV VCA gp125 antigen?
EL-16-06 should be kept frozen until use. Thawing should be done at 4°C. If entire volume will not be used in an experiment, the product should be aliquoted and frozen to avoid repeated freezing and thawing of the bulk material. On thawing material should be mixed by vortexing. Sonication of EL-16-06 is not recommended.
