Interleukin 2, Human (IL-2) BioAssay ELISA Kit

£943.00 96 Tests

This human IL-2 ELISA is a 4.5 hour solid phase immunoassay readily applicable to measure IL-2 levels in serum, plasma, cell culture supernatant, and other biological fluids in the range of 0 to 2500pg/ml. It showed no cross reactivity with other cytokines tested. This IL-2 ELISA is expected to be effectively used for further investigations into the relationship between IL-2 and the various conditions mentioned.

This assay employs the quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay technique. A monoclonal antibody specific for IL-2 has been pre-coated onto a microplate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and any IL-2 present is bound by the immobilized antibody. After washing away any unbound substances, an enzyme-linked polyclonal antibody-enzyme specific for IL-2 is added to the wells. Following a wash to remove any unbound antibody-enzyme reagent, a substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of IL-2 bound in the initial step. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.

In order to measure the concentration of IL-2 in the samples, this kit includes two calibration diluents (Calibrator Diluent I for serum/plasma testing and Calibrator Diluent II for cell culture supernatant testing.) According to the testing system, the provided standard is diluted (2-fold) with the appropriate Calibrator Diluent and assayed at the same time as the samples. This allows the operator to produce a standard curve of Optical Density (O.D) versus IL-2 concentration (pg/ml). The concentration of IL-2 in the samples is then determined by comparing the O.D. of the samples to the standard curve.
