Test principle: The test principle applied in this kit is Sandwich enzyme immunoassay. The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to Rat NT-ProBNP. Standards or samples are added to the appropriate microtiter plate wells then with a biotin-conjugated antibody specific to Rat NT-ProBNP. Next, Avidin conjugated to Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to each microplate well and incubated. After TMB substrate solution is added, only those wells that contain Rat NT-ProBNP, biotin-conjugated antibody and enzyme-conjugated Avidin will exhibit a change in color. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of sulphuric acid solution and the color change is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450nm ± 10nm. The concentration of Rat NT-ProBNP in the samples is then determined by comparing the OD of the samples to the standard curve.

Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay):CV%<8%

Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.

Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays):CV%<10%

Three samples of known concentration were tested in forty separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.


Matrices listed below were spiked with certain level of recombinant NT-ProBNP and the recovery rates were calculated by comparing the measured value to the expected amount of NT-ProBNP in samples.
Matrix Recovery range Average
serum(n=5) 83-97% 90%
EDTA plasma(n=5) 80-97% 88%
Heparin plasma(n=5) 95-108% 101%


The linearity of the kit was assayed by testing samples spiked with appropriate concentration of NT-ProBNP and their serial dilutions. The results were demonstrated by the percentage of calculated concentration to the expected.
