The scattering contribution in A1 was estimated by assuming that the absorbance for larger wavelengths (above the absorption peak edge in the spectrum) was due to scattering.
High absorbance values for samples and/or positive control - absorbance does not go down as the sample is diluted down the plate), might be caused by:
