    Reagent Preparation
    1. Bring all reagents and samples to room temperature (18 - 25 °C) before use. 2. Sample dilution: If your samples need to be diluted, Assay Diluent (Item E) should be used for dilution of serum/plasms/cell culture supernatants/urine. The Human proBNP ELISA Kit Protocol 3 Suggested dilution for normal serum/plasma: 2 fold. Please note that levels of the target protein may vary between different specimens. Optimal dilution factors for each sample must be determined by the investigator. 3. Assay Diluent (Item E) should be diluted 5-fold with deionized or distilled water before use. 4. Preparation of standard: Briefly spin the vial of Item C. Add 800 µL 1x Assay Diluent (Item E) into Item C vial to prepare a 100 ng/ml standard solution. Dissolve the powder thoroughly by a gentle mix. Pipette 400 µL 1x Assay Diluent into each tube. Use the 100 ng/ml standard solution to produce a dilution series (shown below). Mix each tube thoroughly before the next transfer. 1x Assay Diluent serves as the zero standard (0 ng/ml). 200 µL Standard + 800 µL 200myl 200 µL 200 µL 200 µL 200 µL 100 33.33 11.11 3.70 1.235 0.412 0.137 0 ng/ml ng/ml ng/ml ng/ml ng/ml ng/ml ng/ml ng/ml 5. If the Wash Concentrate (20x) (Item B) contains visible crystals, warm to room temperature and mix gently until dissolved. Dilute 20 mL of Wash Buffer Concentrate into deionized or distilled water to yield 400 mL of 1x Wash Buffer. 6. Briefly spin the Detection Antibody vial (Item F) before use. Add 100 µL of 1x Assay Diluent into the vial to prepare a detection antibody concentrate. Pipette up and down to mix gently (The Human proBNP ELISA Kit Protocol 4 concentrate can be stored at 4 °C for 5 days). The detection antibody concentrate should be diluted 80-fold with 1x Assay Diluent and used in step 4 of Part VI Assay Procedure. 7. Briefly spin the HRP-Streptavidin concentrate vial (Item G) and pipette up and down to mix gently before use. HRP-Streptavidin concentrate should be diluted 400-fold with 1x Assay Diluent. For example: Briefly spin the vial (Item G) and pipette up and down to mix gently . Add 30 µL of HRP-Streptavidin concentrate into a tube with 12 mL 1x Assay Diluent to prepare a 400-fold diluted HRP-Streptavidin solution (don't store the diluted solution for next day use). Mix well.
    Assay Procedure
    1. Bring all reagents and samples to room temperature (18 - 25 °C) before use. It is recommended that all standards and samples be run at least in duplicate. 2. Add 100 µL of each standard (see Reagent Preparation step 2) and sample into appropriate wells. Cover well and incubate for 2.5 hours at room temperature or overnight at 4 °C with gentle shaking. 3. Discard 4. Add 100 µL of 1x prepared biotinylated antibody (Reagent Preparation step 6) to each well. Incubate for 1 hour at room temperature with gentle shaking. 5. Discard the solution. Repeat the wash as in step 3. 6. Add 100 µL of prepared Streptavidin solution (see Reagent Preparation step 7) to each well. Incubate for 45 minutes at room temperature with gentle shaking. 7. Discard the solution. Repeat the wash as in step 3. 8. Add 100 µL of TMB One-Step Substrate Reagent (Item H) to each well. Incubate for 30 minutes at room temperature in the dark with gentle shaking. 9. Add 50 µL of Stop Solution (Item I) to each well. Read at 450 nm immediately.
    Calculation of Results

    Calculate the mean absorbance for each set of duplicate standards, controls and samples, and subtract the average zero standard optical density. Plot the standard curve on log-log graph paper or using Sigma plot software, with standard concentration on the x-axis and absorbance on the y-axis. Draw the best-fit straight line through the standard points.
