Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Calcium Flux Assay Using Fluorometric Imaging Plate Reader (FLIPR) Assay
Description:  Test compounds were prepared by adding 90 μL of HBSS/20 mM HEPES/0.1% BSA buffer to 2 μL of serially diluted compounds. To prepare serial dilutions, 10 mM stocks of compounds were prepared in 100% DMSO. The compound dilution plate was set up as follows: well #1 received 29 μL of stock compound and 31 μL DMSO. Wells 2-10 received 40 μL of DMSO. After mixing, 20 μL of solution from well #1 was transferred into well #2, followed by 1:3 serial dilutions out 10 steps. 2 μL of diluted compound was transferred into duplicate wells of 384 well "assay plate" and then 90 μL of buffer was added. After incubation, both the cell and "assay" plates were brought to the FLIPR and 20 μL of the diluted compounds were transferred to the cell plates by the FLIPR. Compound addition was monitored by the FLIPR to detect any agonist activity of the compounds. Plates were then incubated for 30 minutes at room temperature protected from light. After the incubation, plates were returned to the FLIPR and 20 μL of 4.5× concentrated agonist was added to the cell plates. During the assay, fluorescence readings were taken simultaneously from all 384 wells of the cell plate every 1.5 seconds. Five readings were taken to establish a stable baseline, then 20 μL of sample was rapidly (30 μL/sec) and simultaneously added to each well of the cell plate. The fluorescence was continuously monitored before, during and after sample addition for a total elapsed time of 100 seconds.
