Thank you for contacting us.

Just as with a common indirect ELISA it is important to stop the reaction using the appropriate stop solution.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

I am not aware of any cross reactivity of this antibody with human Ig. However we do offer a number of secondary antibodies which are designed to reduce background levels by either being pre-absorbed against other proteins and Igs or by digestion into F(ab) and Fc fragments. I've included links to a few of those below.

That said I do not feel that the background you are experiencing should be the cause for the type of response you have been seeing. This is usually something that can be easily subtracted from your results if you run 2 or 3 wells with this control as a baseline.

Another possibility is that it could be that the dilution buffer you are using is somehow causing this reaction. What buffer are you using? Have you tried using filtering this or using another buffer?

I hope that this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or there are other ways that Abcam may help you meet your research goals.

These are links to the antibodies that have been pre-absorbed:

Many thanks for your reply. I really appreciate your suggestions. My detection is working well now. However I am facing some strange results which I would love your thoughts on please:   I am struggling to interpret an indirect ELISA I am making. It involved coating wells with human plasma overnight, blocked with milk the next day, then primary ab (Abcam), then detection ab (Abcam) and finally the ALP substrate. I ran parallel wells in which I coated with   1)      known concentration of antigen which is a recombinant protein to generate my standard curve and 2)      BSA (negative control) I got nice reproducible standard curves (R2=0.99) and uniformly negative signals from BSA. So all good. However I am seeing a dose-dependent increase in signal in plasma samples. As plasma dilution increased, signal increased - in other words, the more dilute the plasma (so in theory lesser amount of antigen) - the stronger the signal! I could not understand why. I repeated the experiments and I am seeing it every time (4x now). At first I thought it could be due to primary ab binding to "unoccupied sites in the wells" directly, which then generated a signal when secondary added, which would explain why the signal is stronger in diluted sample. But if that's the case I should see that in the BSA wells, but I am not. I did block the wells with milk after coating to ensure all unbound sites are occupied. Then I thought could it be something in the plasma which is inhibiting the substrate reaction (ALP). So the more dilute the plasma, the less the inhibition, and the stronger the signal. But plasma was only used to coat the plate overnight. The plates were then washed after every step with TBS-tween (2-4 times) after every step. So I would imagine not much of any “inhibitors” are around by the time substrate is added. Then I thought whether it could be a “hook” effect. In other words, the plasma is too concentrated and antigen are crowding up thus reducing the amount of binding. But I thought usually plasma then need to be diluted up to 100 folds to relieve the hook. But I am seeing a “nice” dose dependent increase in signal as plasma was diluted from 1:2, 1:4, 1:8 to 1:16 only.

Thank you for contacting me again. It is always a pleasure to hear from you.

After reviewing your email, I am lead to believe that this really is a hook effect as you had mentioned. I am not an expert on this hook effect in plasma specifically, and so cannot comment on the 100 fold dilutions usually required, but your description does sound like a hook effect. These should eventually tail off with further dilutions.

The hook effect may also be created by overcoating with primary antibody; you may wish to further dilute your primary to tackle this as well.

I hope these suggestion help. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for contacting us, I am glad to hear that the new product is working well for you.

Usually when color is developing slowly it is one of three issues. 1) the plates and reagents have not come to room temperature. 2) the conjugates are weak, try to prepare these right before use and at correct concentration 3) the presence of peroxidases, azide or other contaminants are interfering with the reaction, these may be removed by dyalisis, gel filtration or with purification columns.

I hope that this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or there are other ways that Abcam may help you meet your research goals.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

Enzymatic detection with an antibody that has been conjugated to HRP or to AP is a widely used and robust method. As this target is located on the peroxisome membrane I would recommend using anAlkaline Phosphataseconjugated secondary for this target prehaps ab6722,Goat polyclonal Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG - H&L (AP). Followed by an appropriate substrate detection of your choice. I recommend theAlkaline Phosphatase chromogen (BCIP/NBT). We do offer this as a ready to use product, ab7468.

I hope you have found this information helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions. I have places links to each of the products I have mentioned here below.
