Create mode – the default mode when you create a requisition and PunchOut to Bio-Rad. You can create and edit multiple shopping carts
Edit mode – allows you to edit or modify an existing requisition (prior to submitting). You will be able to modify only the cart that you have PunchedOut to, and won't have access to any other carts
Inspect mode – when you PunchOut to Bio-Rad from a previously created requisition but without initiating an Edit session, you will be in this mode. You cannot modify any Cart contents

The previous section covered the need for standards to obtain quantitative ELISA results. It should be noted that standards should be acquired in sufficient amounts (or a reliable supply needs to be found) not only for the development phase but also for the expected service life of the assay. Additional to standards, controls should be included in ELISAs.
The most basic control is the blank sample control. Additional controls are needed to provide a comparison to real world physiological conditions and a control mechanism for assurance that the assay continues to provide accurate results. Hence control samples that have had their analyte concentration validated by another method are employed. These can be set up as positive, but also as negative controls. A control subcategory is spiked samples; here a known amount of standard has been added to the matrix used for the ELISA. Spiked controls can indicate assay performance by calculating percent recovery from the ELISA readout. When recombinant proteins are used, their equivalent functionality to the endogenous wild type versions of the protein needs to be checked.
