we would like to know if the Human apoE ELISA PRO kit (3712-1HP-2) can be used on Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), human, and if you have an idea about the dilution of such sample.


Thank you.

Dear Olimpia,

The authors of the paper below used the Mabtech apoE ELISA for spinal fluid. They obtained values around 5 ug/ml. Most likely a dilution of 1000X would be apropriate, but you may have to try two or three different dilutions in your first experiment.


Best wishes,

I just want  to add two interesting articles to this discussion:


Van Harten et al. are also using Mabtech's apoE ELISA to analyze apoE in CSF and plasma, they dilute the samples 1:2000 and 1:20000, respectively.


 Van Harten et al. (2017) CSF ApoE predicts clinical progression in nondemented APOEε4 carriers. Neurobiol Aging.


Several apolipoproteins are present in cerebrospinal fluid, Slot et al. are using Mabtech's apoA1 ELISA du analyze apoA1 in CSF and plasma, and for apoA1 they dilute CSF and plasma 1:1000 and 1:100000, respectively.
