BioGenes BlueCap LX-Buffer
Made to simplify your assay, reduce the processing time and increase the reliability of results.
BioGenes offers a range of products including stabilization solution, blocking solution and assay diluents for
use in immunoassays. By using these buffer, the reliability of your assay results can be improved, the
assays protocol can be simplified and processing times are reduced.
Stabilizer are necessary to preserve the activity of sensitive biologicals used in immunoassays. Their
purpose is to protect proteins, antibodies and conjugates (e.g. HRP-labelled or AP-labelled) as well as
antigens either solubilized or coated onto surfaces of microtiter plates and others. They are routinely used for
production of commercial ELISA kits.
Blocking solutions are used to saturate free binding capacities of surfaces like ELISA plates or Western
blotting membranes. Efficient blocking is necessary to obtain reliable assay results and to reduce false-
positives due to undesired background signals.
Assay diluents are applied to lower cross reactivities, unspecific binding and matrix effects. They are
applicable in a multitude of assays such as ELISA, EIA, Western blotting, immuno-PCR, protein arrays,
multianalyte immunoassays and immunohistochemistry approaches.
BioGenes BlueCap Buffer solutions are highly suitable for your applications such as in vitro diagnostics, food
diagnostics, veterinary diagnostics, life sciences and manufacturing in GLP-conform laboratories.
BlueCap Solution LX-Buffer lowers cross reactivities, unspecific binding and matrix effects in
immunoassays like ELISA, EIA, Western blotting, immuno-PCR, protein arrays, multianalyte immunoassays
and immunohistochemistry – depending on the characteristics of the assay type and the used antibodies.
Immediately before use the buffer should be mixed thoroughly. LX-Buffer is used instead of a sample buffer
or antibody dilution buffer for the immunological reaction.
LX-Buffer is unsuitable for blocking of surfaces!
For blocking of surfaces we recommend our Blocking Solution.
LX-Buffer is not recommended to use as sample buffer for electrophoresis.
