General description

The sensitivity of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays often depends on the detection limit of the colorimetric substrates used. In addition, the dynamic range of a colorimetric assay is restricted to a maximum of two orders of magnitude due to the physical/chemical limitations of absorbance measurement (Law of Lambert & Beer). With chemiluminescence technology, a nonradioactive method, which combines the convenience of tube or microplate-based immunoassays with the advantages of isotopic assays, is now available. The BM Chemiluminescence ELISA Substrate (POD) has been evaluated with different immunoassays on the LB 96 P microplate reader and the LB 953 tube chemiluminescence analyzer from EG&G;Berthold.

Other Notes

For life science research only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.


Horseradish peroxidase (POD, HRP), in the presence of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), catalyzes the oxidation of diacylhydrazides such as luminol. A reaction product in an excited state is thus formed, then decays to the ground state by emitting light. Strong enhancement of the light emission is achieved by the agent 4-iodophenol (contained), which acts as a radical transmitter between the formed oxygen radical and luminol.

Preparation Note

Working solution: Preparation of working solution

The BM Chemiluminescence ELISA Substrate is supplied as a set of two stable solutions. Depending on the scale of the assay, the appropriate amount of substrate solution has to be prepared 15 minutes before use: • Add to 100 parts of solution A one part of solution B.
• Stir the mixture for at least 15 minutes at 15 to 25 °C to equilibrate the components.
Premixed working solution stored at 2 to 8 °C should be warmed up to 15 to 25 °C to avoid temperature effects during measurement.
Storage conditions (working solution): The premixed solution is stable for 1 week, when stored at 2 to 8 °C.


The BM Chemiluminescence ELISA Substrate (POD) provides a substrate solution for peroxidase-based (POD, HRP) secondary detection systems with highly sensitive, enhanced chemiluminescence. This reagent has been optimized for ELISA applications to be run on a microplate chemiluminescence reader (96-well format) or tube-format luminometers.
