Introduction

Copeptin is a 39-amino acid peptide, mainly produced in the paraventricular neurons of the hypothalamus and in the supraoptical nucleus. It is cleaved from a protein also consisting of vasopressin and neurophysin II. Copeptin may help vasopressin folding during transportation. Vasopressin has a direct antidiuretic action on the kidney, and it also causes vasoconstriction of the peripheral vessels. Copeptin can be used as a vasopressin surrogate in clinical test. The clinical interest in copeptin testing is closely linked to the pathophysiological pathways in which vasopressin is involved, such as polydipsia-polyuria syndrome, hyponatremia, syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion (SIADH) as well as heart failure and acute coronary syndrome.

  2. Add 100 µl detection antibody to each well.
  3. Incubate 1.5 h at RT or O/N at 4°C.
  4. Add 100 µl standard or sample to each well.
  5. Incubate 2.5 h at RT.
  6. Add 100 µl prepared streptavidin solution.
  7. Incubate 45 min at RT.
  8. Add 100 µl TMB One-Step Substrate Reagent to each well.
  9. Incubate 30 min at RT.

Storage/Stability

Standard, biotinylated peptide, and positive control should be stored at -20°C after arrival. Avoid multiple freeze-thaws. The remaining kit components may be stored at 4°C. Opened microplate wells and antibody (Item N) may be stored for up to 1 month at 2° to 8°C. Return unused wells to the pouch containing desiccant pack and reseal along entire edge.
