Peptide ELISA

I have used KLH-conjugates to raise antibodies in rabbits. I coated the
plates with either the peptide alone or coupled to ovalbumine. Both were
dissolved in sodiumcarbonate buffer. I had no problems with the ELISA. I had
nice titers with good duplos.
Maybe your peptide doesn't dissolve in the sodium carbopnate buffer (you
might try to add some other solvent to dissolve your peptide.
I don;'t know whether that will interfere with the procedure.
Good luck
