Brief Description & Uses

Contains 30 or 60 dipsticks and necessary components to quantify the levels of the fully assembled Complex I enzyme complex (NADH ubiquinone oxidoreductase) from human and bovine samples. The kit includes sufficient materials to generate a standard curve and evaluate several unknown samples.

Immunochromatographic Reader

While visual measurements and scanning on a flatbed scanner can both be used to evaluate our dipsticks, the most effective quantitative results are derived when using an immunochromatographic reader that has been specifically designed to read conjugated gold lateral flow devices.

The reader that we recommend is the Hamamatsu ICA-1000, which is a simple PC-based system for measuring and analyzing our dipstick products. We have an agreement in place with Hamamatsu that allows us to offer this reader directly to our customers.

The above results show the clear visual difference between a sample with normal levels of Complex I enzyme complex compared to patients with defects in Complex I assembly (patient 1 and 2) or cells depleted of mitochondrial proteins (rho0 cells). Also, we can see that the dipsticks are specific since they detect no alteration in Complex I assembly from a Complex IV patient. The dipstick results are both quantitative and highly reproducible (intra-assay error less than 10%). The developed dipsticks can be analyzed with a simple flat-be scanner and common imaging software or, for sensitive and reproducible results, a dipstick reader can be utilized (our suggested reader: Hamamatsu ICA-1000).
