The tube was inverted gently 5 times. The tube was centrifuged at 2000 x g for 10 minutes between 30- 60 minutes from collection time. The supernatant was removed and placed in a clean cryovial and stored in -80degC freezer. Samples were removed and thawed for the first time and are aliquotted out to prevent numerous freeze/thaw cycles. Sample Processing: Samples were run according to the manufacturer's protocol. Total Antioxidant Power Colorimetric Microplate Assay (TA02) by Oxford Biomedical Research, and 2-Thiobarbituric Acid Reactive Substances (FR40) by Oxford Biomedical Research. Sample Collection: whole blood 100ul of whole blood were collected into a microcentrifuge tube containing 30ul of Scavenger. 50ul of whole blood were collected into an empty microcentrifuge tube. Tubes were gently inverted and stored in -80degC freezer or in LN2. Sample Processing: Samples assayed according to the manufacturer's protocol. Total Antioxidant Power Colorimetric Microplate Assay (TA02) by Oxford Biomedical Research, GSH/GSSG Microplate Assay (GT40) by Oxford Biomedical Research.|DS2 Automated ELISA instrument by Dynex Technologies.||%CV for the standard curve less than 25% is acceptable, less than 15% for sample replicates.|
