Blockers Practical Guide

Solid Phase Blockers Solid phase blocking agents are designed to saturate unoccupied binding sites on the solid phase to prevent non-specific binding. Typically blocking buffers are able to block both hydrophobic and hydrophilic sites on the solid phase. In addition, they can serve as stabilizing agents and prevent denaturation as proteins react at the surface of the solid phase.

IgG Absorbents IgG absorbents are designed for the removal of human IgG and Ig / rheumatoid factor (RF) complexes from serum and plasma prior to testing for specific IgM antibodies in ELISA or other immunoassays. Removal of IgG interference has been demonstrated to significantly increase the sensitivity of IgM detection.

TRU Block ™ - HAMA & RF Blocker In double mouse monoclonal sandwich assays, an active blocker against human anti-mouse antibodies (HAMA) and rheumatoid factor (RF) should be used to prevent non-specific interference leading to false assay results. TRU Block is a proprietary active blocker that can significantly reduce assay interference and improve assay results. It can be used at a lower concentration than passive blocking reagents such as mouse IgG.
