Its cross-reactivity with cGMP is < 0.005%. Stability: This product is stable for at least 12 months from the manufacturing date if used and stored under recommended conditions. Storage Conditions: Store undiluted at 4°C protected from light. Freeze-thaw is not recommended and can cause the beads to form aggregates. Recommended use: AlphaScreen® Donor beads are light-sensitive. All Alpha assays using the Donor beads should be performed under subdued laboratory lighting (< 100 lux). Green filters (LEE 090 filters (preferred) or Roscolux filters #389 from Rosco) can be applied to light fixtures.

We certify that these results meet our requirements. TEST RESULTS Maximum signal Minimum signal IC50 20 500 cps 463 cps 14.88 nM Recommended Assay Conditions Note: This protocol provides a method to verify kit performance and is not representative of an assay. Sufficient biotinylated-probe and 10x buffer is provided to perform 3 competition curves in triplicate as described. ® 1x Buffer: Add 500 μL 10x buffer to 4.45 mL Milli-Q H2O (or equivalent). Add 0.05 mL tween20 3% and adjust pH to 7.4. Acceptor Beads: Add 5 μL Anti-cAMP Acceptor beads to 245 μL 1x buffer. Donor beads: Add 5 μL Streptavidin Donor beads to 730 μL 1x buffer. Biotinylated-probe: Add 5 μL biotinylated-cAMP to 195 μL 1x buffer. cAMP standard: From the 50 µM cAMP standard, prepare a ½ log dilution series (5 µM to 50 pM) in 1x buffer. Include a buffer only control. Titration Protocol: To a white opaque 384-well Optiplate: 1- Add 5 μL of Anti-cAMP Acceptor beads. 2- Add 5 μL cAMP standard dilutions (from lowest to highest concentration). 3- Pre-mix the biotinylated-cAMP and Streptavidin Donor beads from previously diluted solutions by adding 15 µL of biotinylated-cAMP to the Streptavidin Donor beads dilution. Incubate the premix and the plate in the dark at room temperature for 30 minutes. 4- Add 15 μL of premix biotinylated-cAMP/Streptavidin Donor beads. ® Incubate in the dark at room temperature for 60 minutes and analyze on your AlphaScreen detection reader.
