Specificity
This sandwich ELISA recognizes both natural and recombinant human IL-6. This kit exhibits no detectable cross-reactivity with human; SAA, EGF, IL-8, IL-16, MCAF, MCP-3, TNF-?, M-CSF, GM-CSF, TGF-beta1, RANTES, FGF, MIP-1alpha, CRP, EPO, IFN-gamma.
Samples
Cell Culture Supernatant, serum, plasma, and other biological fluids
Assay Type
Sandwich
Sensitivity
The minimum detectable dose of IL-6 was determined by adding two standard deviations to the mean optical density value of the zero standard replicates and calculating the corresponding concentration from the standard curve. The minimum detectable dose using a standard curve generated with Calibrator Diluent I is 2.0 pg/mL and using Calibrator Diluent II is 1.75 pg/mL.
Intra-assay Precision
To determine within-run precision, three different samples of known concentration were assayed by replicates of 20 in 1 assay.
Inter-assay Precision
To determine between-run precision, three different samples of known concentration were assayed by replicates on 20 different assays.
Intended Uses
This Human IL-6 ELISA kit is to be used for the in vitro quantitative determination of human interleukin-6 (IL-6) concentrations in cell culture supernatant, serum, plasma, and other biological fluids. This kit is intended FOR LABORATORY RESEARCH USE ONLY and is not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Product Note
Our ELISA Kit assays are dynamic research tools and sometimes they may be updated and improved. If the format of this assay is important to you then please request the current manual or contact our technical support team with a presales inquiry before placing an order. We will confirm the current details of the assay. We cannot guarantee the sample manual posted online is the most current manual.
Other Notes
Small volumes of IL-6 elisa kit vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

MBS590011 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip-or-full plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Interleukin-6 (IL-6) ELISA Kit target analytes in biological samples. The concentration gradients of the kit standards or positive controls render a theoretical kit detection range in biological research samples containing IL-6. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS590011 kit is based on IL-6 antibody-IL-6 antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect IL-6 antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, IL-6. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

Principle of the assay: This IL-6 enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) applies a technique called a quantitative sandwich immunoassay. The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with a monoclonal antibody specific to IL-6. Standards or samples are then added to the appropriate microtiter plate wells with a biotin-conjugated polyclonal antibody preparation specific for IL-6 and incubated. IL-6, if present, will bind and become immobilized by the antibody pre-coated on the wells and then be "sandwiched" by biotin conjugate. The microtiter plate wells are thoroughly washed to remove unbound IL-6 and other components of the sample. In order to quantitatively determine the amount of IL-6 present in the sample, Avidin conjugated to Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to each microplate well and incubated. Avidin is a tetramer containing four identical subunits that each has a high affinity-binding site for biotin. The wells are thoroughly washed to remove all unbound HRP-conjugated Avidin and a TMB (3,3'5, 5' tetramethyl-benzidine) substrate solution is added to each well. The enzyme (HRP) and substrate are allowed to react over a short incubation period. Only those wells that contain IL-6, biotin-conjugated antibody and enzyme-conjugated Avidin will exhibit a change in colour. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of a sulphuric acid solution and the colour change is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450nm +/- 2 nm. In order to measure the concentration of IL-6 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-6 concentration (pg/mL). The concentration of IL-6 in the samples is then determined by comparing the O.D. of the samples to the standard curve.

NCBI Summary for IL-6
This gene encodes a cytokine that functions in inflammation and the maturation of B cells. In addition, the encoded protein has been shown to be an endogenous pyrogen capable of inducing fever in people with autoimmune diseases or infections. The protein is primarily produced at sites of acute and chronic inflammation, where it is secreted into the serum and induces a transcriptional inflammatory response through interleukin 6 receptor, alpha. The functioning of this gene is implicated in a wide variety of inflammation-associated disease states, including suspectibility to diabetes mellitus and systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

UniProt Comments for IL-6
IL6: Cytokine with a wide variety of biological functions. It is a potent inducer of the acute phase response. Plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig- secreting cells Involved in lymphocyte and monocyte differentiation. It induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth and induces nerve cells differentiation Acts on B-cells, T-cells, hepatocytes, hematopoietic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS. Also acts as a myokine. It is discharged into the bloodstream after muscle contraction and acts to increase the breakdown of fats and to improve insulin resistance. Genetic variations in IL6 are associated with susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis systemic juvenile (RASJ). An inflammatory articular disorder with systemic- onset beginning before the age of 16. It represents a subgroup of juvenile arthritis associated with severe extraarticular features and occasionally fatal complications. During active phases of the disorder, patients display a typical daily spiking fever, an evanescent macular rash, lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, serositis, myalgia and arthritis. A IL6 promoter polymorphism is associated with a lifetime risk of development of Kaposi sarcoma in HIV-infected men. Belongs to the IL-6 superfamily.
