What is the sensitivity of Product FLAA, ATP Bioluminescent Assay Kit the assay mix?
With FLAAM diluted 1:5, one can easily measure 1 pmol ATP in 100 µl (10 nM) with 50 µl of the reagent.
What  is the stability of the Product FLAA, ATP Bioluminescent Assay Kit ATP stock solution?
The ATP standard stock solution (FLAAS) is stable for at least 24 hours at 0-5°C, or for over two weeks if stored frozen at -20°C.
Can Product FLAA, ATP Bioluminescent Assay Kit assay mix be used on cells and tissues?
This reagent measures only soluble ATP. Cells must be washed and then lysed to obtain a soluble ATP extract. Tissues must be homogenized and clarified to provide an extract. The supernatant solution can then be used for assay.
How can one check for inhibitors in the samples when using Product FLAA, ATP Bioluminescent Assay Kit?
One must add an amount of ATP from a standard solution equivalent to the ATP already found in the sample. If the signal is doubled, the absence of an inhibitor is indicated.
