Mean percentage increase in stability of PAN antigens in stabilized samples (chemical additive added) compared to the control samples (no chemical additive added). Error bars: indicate mean and standard error of the mean. a The percentage increase in stability of pLDH and aldolase in stabilized samples at 2000 p/µL, while b indicates stabilized samples at 500 p/µL.
