Standard Info Sheet: Indicates reconstitute volume and standard concentrations.

STORAGE:  2-8 C in the dark.

IMPORTANT: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

APPLICATION: Optimal antibody pairs and antigen standards for assaying NHP IGF I and IGF II. To be used in conjunction with the AimPlex Basic Kit for Premixed Panels (PN: U100005) and the IGF I/IGF II Diluent Kit (PN: P910102, universal for all sample types). Refer to the AimPlex Multiplex Immunoassay User Manual and kit inserts for the assay procedure.

Note: Some sample types such as serum and plasma should be pretreated to release IGF I and IGF II from their binding proteins for accurate measurement.  There are number of sample pretreatment methods described in literature including size exclusion chromatography, solid-phase extraction and acid-ethanol extraction.  The acid-ethanol extraction method described by Breier et al. (J Endocrinol. 1991, 128:347-357) has been used in many published studies.  The appropriate specimen pretreatment method should be determined by the investigator according to the sample type and experimental conditions.
