Description

Background

The EndoAlert™ ES Endotoxin Plate Kit is a kinetic, colorimetric assay for the quantitative determination of bacterial Endotoxin in aqueous solutions. Endotoxin, a bacterial lipopolysaccharide, is one of the major cell wall components of most gram-negative bacteria. The Endotoxin ES Plate Kit detects low levels of Endotoxin and is therefore a useful tool to assess the integrity of biological and environmental samples. The detection ranges from 0.01 - 10 Endotoxin units (EU/mL). The EndoAlert™ ES Endotoxin Plate Kit is a quantitative version of the reaction first described by Levin and Bang in 1968. The test is based upon an enzymatic cascade where Endotoxin activates Factor C in Limulus Amebocyte Lysate (LAL) which in turn activates Factor B. Factor B activates Proclotting Enzyme which then activates Clotting Enzyme. A colorless synthetic peptide substrate is hydrolyzed by Clotting Enzyme to generate a yellow color which can be measured by a spectrophotometer at 405 nm. The degree of color resulting from the reaction is proportional to the amount of Endotoxin in the test sample and can be calculated using a standard curve.

Application Note

Endotoxin level detection. See kit protocol for complete details. The detection ranges from 0.01 - 10 Endotoxin units (EU/mL). Incubation 60 mins.

Purity/Specificity

This kit contains: 96-well plate, endotoxin standard, chromogenic lysate (60 tests), LAL reagent water, endotoxin specific buffer. See kit protocol for complete details. The EndoAlert™ ES Endotoxin Plate Kit is specifically formulated to detect and react only with endotoxin and is unreactive to (1,3) B-D glucans which are cell wall components of fungi. The EndoAlert™ ES Endotoxin Plate Kit provides a level of Endotoxin only in relation to the standard. It is NOT specific to the species of gram-negative bacteria which is the source of the Endotoxin in the sample. To increase accuracy of the test when the source of Endotoxin is known, use a purified Endotoxin from that species.

Storage Condition

Store all kit reagents at 2-8 °C in the dark. Avoid storing kits for extended periods (more than 24 hours) at room temperature. See kit protocol for complete details.
