The strips have been tested on instant soup broth, restaurant Pho broth, soy sauce, fish sauce, 2% milk, plasma, serum, and urine.
For samples with low levels of Glutamate (e.g. plasma, urine, serum, etc) we recommend diluting samples 2×. To do this, carefully transfer 400 µL of sample to the Sample Development Tube. If a pipetteman is not available, we have 400 µL single use transfer pipettes that can be purchased separately (Cat No. TP400). Please note that samples need to have at least 0.1 – 0.2 mM Glutamate to be detected by the strip.
Very dark purple indicates that the diluted sample concentration is greater than 2 mM. To obtain a more accurate concentration, the sample should be further diluted and retested. For example, if the sample was diluted 5×, try diluting 21×.
We offer exact volume transfer pipettes as an accessory. For samples requiring a 21× dilution, order the 20 µL transfer pipettes (TP20). For samples requiring a 5× dilution, order the 100 µL transfer pipettes (TP100). For samples requiring a 210× dilution, order the 20 µL and 100 µL transfer pipettes.
Fluorescent lights can have a green cast so it is best to view strips under incandescent or natural lighting for optimal color matching.
Yes, unused reagents can be stored according to the assay protocol. The strips should be kept in a dry, cool location and protected from light.
