Is it okay to use this kit with store human serum (-80C)?
Asked on Nov 26 2013
We would recommend fresh serum samples for best results. If fresh samples is not an option storage at -80 °C is less likely to degrade the sample quality.
For this product ab65341, blood needs to be collected using an anticoagulant such as EDTA, sodium citrate, sodium fluoride, or ammonium oxalate. Heparinized plasma is not the best choice as heparin could interfere with the assay.
