Frequently Asked Questions
What Happened to EL-05-13?
We have discontinued EL-05-13 and replaced it with EL-05-10. This technical bulletin will explain the change and show you how EL-05-10 can be used in a similar manner to EL-05-13.
How do I choose between the 2 grades of rubella?
All three rubella antigens are suitable for commonly used immunoassays. Typically selection of the antigen will depend on the application and the specific assay set up.
Rubella K1S antigen is purified by sucrose gradient centrifugation and ratio of rubella antigen to extraneous protein is significantly higher than for Rubella K0S antigen. As such it can be used in any assay set up including assays that require direct covalent conjugation of the antigen, with appreciable conjugation efficiency.
Rubella K2S as highly purified product contains rubella virus only and no extraneous protein. As such this antigen is ideal for assays that require highest level of sensitivity and specificity. Due to the high purity level of Rubella K2S antigen, the antigen can be used for conjugation to other entities such as other proteins (e.g. antibodies, enzymes) or to solid support and particles (latex, iron, nanogold) with maximum conjugation efficiency. Generally, Rubella K2S antigen is used at a high dilution due to the high purity of the antigen.
