The Quantikine Human Carbonic Anhydrase IX Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human CA9 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human CA9 ectodomain and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human CA9 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring human CA9.
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.
The recovery of CA9 spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of CA9 were serially diluted with the Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.
Preparation and Storage
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Background: Carbonic Anhydrase IX/CA9
Carbonic anhydrases catalyze the reversible reaction of CO2 + H2O = HCO3- + H+, which is fundamental to many processes such as respiration, renal tubular acidification and bone resorption. Human members of the CAs are secreted (CA6), membrane-bound (CA4, 9 to 12 and 14), cytosolic (CA1 to 3, 7, 8 and 13) or mitochondrial (CA5A and 5B). Some CAs may serve as markers for tumors and hypoxia. A subset of CAs lack CA activity due to point mutations but retain esterase function.
Refer to the product for complete assay procedure.
Bring all reagents and samples to room temperature before use. It is recommended that all samples, standards, and controls be assayed in duplicate.
Prepare all reagents, standard dilutions, and samples as directed in the product insert.
Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.
