Product Summary
The Parameter TXB2 Immunoassay is a 3.5 hour competitive enzyme immunoassay designed to measure TXB2 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine.

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 TXB2 spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Media (n=4) 98 88-110
EDTA Plasma (n=4) 94 86-105
Heparin Plasma (n=4) 97 87-107
Serum (n=4) 98 86-111
Urine (n=4) 98 84-111
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of TXB2 were serially diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

    Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Background: Thromboxane B2
Thromboxane A2 (TXA2), is an eicosanoid involved in platelet aggregation, vasoconstriction, and reproductive functions. However, as TXA2 is rapidly degraded in vivo, TXA2 production is typically examined by assaying the more stable Thromboxane B2 (TXB2) or 11-dehydro-TXB2 (11-d-TXB2) derivatives. Levels of these metabolites are helpful markers in the study of diseases including liver cirrhosis, cystic fibrosis, mastocytosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, thrombosis diseases, and others.

    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. Calibrator Diluent
    4.   Add 150 µL of Calibrator Diluent to the non-specific binding (NSB) wells.
    5.   Add 100 µL of Calibrator Diluent to the zero standard (B0) wells.

    6. 100 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
    7.   Add 100 µL of Standard, control, or sample to the remaining wells.

    8. 50 µL Primary Antibody Solution
    9.   Add 50 µL of Primary Antibody Solution to each well (except the NSB wells).
    10.   Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on a horizontal orbital microplate shaker. Do not wash the plate.

    11. 50 µL Conjugate
    12.   Add 50 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 1 hour on the shaker.
    13.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 3 times for a total of 4 washes.

    14. 200 µL Substrate Solution
    15. Add 200 µL Substrate Solution to each well. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes on the benchtop. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.

    16. 100 µL Stop Solution
    17. Add 100 µL of Stop Solution to each well. Read at 450 nm within 30 minutes. Set wavelength correction to 540 nm or 570 nm.
