Assay Principle
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.  
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.    
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of human ELN in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Sample type: Cell culture supernatant

Sample species: Human

Review: The error was not felt between wells of the plate, and it was a reliable kit. The box was easy to use and I liked it.

Sample type: Biological fluids(urine)

Sample species: Human

Review: I used this kit to determine the elastin concentrations on Human urine samples with no dilution in duplicate and obtained %CV values of 0.2-24.4%. All my values were in the detection range, however, they were in the lower end of the range. Regarding group differences, it is too soon to tell, however, I will be purchasing 10 more kits that will allow me to analyze these differences.
