MDA, or malondialdehyde, is a widely accepted marker for oxidative stress. Our OxiSelect™ MDA Competitive ELISA test kit provides a sensitive, specific method for detection of this lipid peroxidation by-product. Important Note: MDA adducts are not stable long term. For best results test all samples immediately upon collection, or freeze them at -80ºC for up to one month. MDA may be degraded in samples that have been frozen for longer periods; in such cases more reliable results may be obtained from more stable markers of oxidative stress such as protein carbonyl, 8-OHdG or 4-HNE.
Human ELISAs or ELISA kits will be stored at +4°C. The expiry date is mostly determined by the standard stability. If your ELISA kit is expired we can supply a new standard so it will still be functional.
Upon receipt, aliquot and store the MDA-BSA Standard, MDA Conjugate and 100X Conjugate Diluent at -20ºC to avoid multiple freeze/thaw cycles. Store all other test kit components at 4ºC.
