Summary of CALUX Assay Procedure
  Samples are extracted following JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) methods or by a sonication extraction method.  The crude extract is concentrated, resuspended in hexane and subjected to the XDS patented clean-up method.  The sample is then applied to acid silica column and XCARB (activated carbon) columns and PCDD/Fs and coplanar PCBs are separated using appropriate solvents (separation of the PCDD/Fs and coplanar PCBs is not always necessary).  The solvent is replaced with DMSO and added to cultures of recombinant mouse hepatoma (H1L6.1c3) CALUX cells grown in 96-well microplates.  A dilution series of 2,3,7,8-TCDD is included in each plate as the positive control and to generate a standard curve of luciferase induction.  After 24 hours, luciferase activity in each sample extract well is measured and compared to the 2,3,7,8-TCDD standard curve to allow calculation of total CALUX TEQ.
