Manufacturing Date: February 28, 2011 Product Information Description: Anti-6xHis AlphaLISA Acceptor beads at 5 mg/mL in PBS pH 7.2 with 0.05% Proclin-300 as a preservative. The antibody used is a mouse monoclonal antibody. Application: This product is intended for use in homogeneous AlphaLISA assays to capture 6xHis-tagged targets. Tris buffer is not recommended as an assay buffer since it affects product performance in the titration assay. Alpha Donor beads must be ordered separately. Storage: Store in the dark at 4˚C. Stability: This product is stable for at least 12 months from the manufacturing date when stored in its original packaging under recommended storage conditions. FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY. NOT FOR USE IN DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES. Quality Control ® Lot-to-lot consistency is confirmed by a Quality Control AlphaLISA titration assay read on an EnVision HTS Alpha instrument (see protocol below). We certify that the results meet our quality release criteria. Note: maximum counts will vary depending on assay conditions as well as between lots. This variation has no impact on assay quality. Maximum signal: Minimum signal: EC50: TDS-AL128-01 Page 1 of 4 260 762 counts 449 counts 12.11 nM Titration Assay (Quality Control Protocol) This protocol provides a means to verify product performance. It is used as our Quality Control release test. The following reagents and materials are used: Item Suggested Source Glutathione Alpha Donor beads PerkinElmer GST, 6 His-tagged Millipore Corp. 12-523 AlphaLISA Universal Assay Buffer, 5X PerkinElmer AL001C (10 mL) AL001F (100 mL) White OptiPlate™-384 PerkinElmer 6007290 TopSeal™-A Adhesive Sealing Film PerkinElmer 6005185 PerkinElmer - ® EnSpire or EnVision Multilabel Alpha Reader Catalog # 6765300 (1 mg) 6765301 (5 mg) 6765302 (25 mg) Recommendations The volume indicated on each tube is guaranteed for single pipetting. Multiple pipetting of the reagents may reduce the theoretical amount left in the tube. To minimize loss when pipetting beads, it is preferable not to prewet the tip. Alpha Donor beads are light-sensitive. All steps using the Alpha Donor beads should be performed under subdued laboratory lighting (< 100 lux). Green filters (Roscolux filters #389 from Rosco, or the equivalent) can be applied to light fixtures. All the other assay reagents can be used under normal light conditions. Sodium azide should not be added to stock reagents. High concentrations of sodium azide (> 0.001 % final in the assay) might decrease the AlphaLISA signal. Centrifuge the tubes briefly before use to improve recovery of content (2,000 x g, 10-15 sec). Resuspend all reagents by vortexing before use. ® Use Milli-Q grade water (18 MΩ•cm) to dilute the 5X AlphaLISA Universal Assay Buffer. When diluting the probe, change tips after each dilution. When loading reagents in the assay microplate, change tips after each reagent addition and between each set of reagents. When reagents are added in the microplate, make sure the liquids are at the bottom of the well. 1X AlphaLISA Universal Assay Buffer contains PBS, pH 7.5, 0.1% BSA, 0.01% Proclin-300. This buffer is used in the titration assay described below (Quality Control Protocol). Optimization of the assay buffer might be necessary in other assay types. Small volumes may be prone to evaporation. It is recommended to cover microplates with TopSeal-A Adhesive Sealing Film to reduce evaporation during incubation. Microplates are read with the TopSeal-A Film on the plate. Total signal varies with temperature and incubation time. For consistent results, identical incubation times and temperature should be used for all plates. TDS-AL128-01 Page 2 of 4 The AlphaLISA signal is detected with an Alpha-enabled EnSpire or EnVision Multilabel Reader using the AlphaScreen standard settings (e.g. Total Measurement Time: 550 ms, Laser 680 nm, Excitation Time: 180 ms, Mirror: D640as, Emission Filter: M570w, Center Wavelength 570 nm, Bandwidth 100 nm, Transmittance 75%). Quality Control Protocol This titration protocol is designed for 12 dilutions of the probe with triplicate determinations. Final concentration of AlphaLISA Acceptor and Alpha Donor beads in the 25 µL final assay volume is 20 µg/mL. Volume of diluted reagents should be adjusted according to total number of assay points, plate format or assay volume. 1) Preparation of 1X AlphaLISA Universal Assay Buffer: Add 1 mL of 5X AlphaLISA Universal Assay Buffer to 4 mL H2O. 2) Preparation of 1.7X probe (GST, 6 His-tagged) dilutions: Dilute probe to a 37 µM stock solution.
