The control sera are supplied diluted in PBS. They are pooled sera taken from animals that have experienced a single exposure to live virus and therefore act as a valid positive control in the detection and evaluation of natural exposure in test sera. The sera have not been heat inactivated or preservative added and should therefore be stored at -20° C or below. We recommend for maximum economy that they are thawed, diluted to working strength in PBS/Tween with the appropriate blocking agent included and re-aliquotted in convenient volumes for further storage at -20° C. The recommended dilution is usually 1:5 performed by the customer to arrive at a working dilution. Thus, 0.5 ml of product will usually provide up to 50 positive control wells on ELISA plates at 50 µl per well.
