Product Summary
The Quantikine Human TFPI Immunoassay is a 3.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human TFPI in cell culture supernates, plasma, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human TFPI and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human TFPI 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 TFPI.

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 TFPI spiked to three different levels in samples throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %

Urine (n=4) 94 85-106
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing or spiked with high concentrations of TFPI were diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Background: TFPI
Human TFPI is a physiological inhibitor of the extrinsic pathway of coagulation and functions in anticoagulation and anti-inflammation. It is a secreted protein with an N-terminal acidic region, three Kunitz (K) domains separated by two linker regions, and a C-terminal basic region. The first K domain inhibits coagulation factor VIIa complexed to tissue factor (TF). The second K domain inhibits factor Xa. The third K domain binds to heparin. The C-terminal basic region may have several functions. Human TFPI-2 is structurally similar to TFPI and is downregulated in several cancers.

    Assay Procedure
    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.
    1.   Prepare all reagents, standard dilutions, and samples as directed in the product insert.
    2.   Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.

    3. 100 µL Assay Diluent
    4.   Add 100 µL of Assay Diluent to each well.

    5. 50 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
    6.   Add 50 µL of Standard, control, or sample to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on a horizontal orbital microplate shaker.
    7.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 3 times for a total of 4 washes.

    8. 200 µL Conjugate
    9.   Add 200 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 1 hour on the shaker.
    10.   Aspirate and wash 4 times.

    11. 200 µL Substrate Solution
    12.   Add 200 µL Substrate Solution to each well. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes on the benchtop. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.

    13. 50 µL Stop Solution
    14.   Add 50 µL of Stop Solution to each well. Read at 450 nm within 30 minutes. Set wavelength correction to 540 nm or 570 nm.
