Intended Uses: This ELISA kit applies to the in vitro quantitative determination of Guinea pig IL-18 concentrations in serum, plasma and other biological fluids.
Principle of the Assay: This ELISA kit uses Sandwich-ELISA as the method. The micro ELISA plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to IL-18. Standards or samples are added to the appropriate micro ELISA plate wells and combined with the specific antibody. Then a biotinylated detection antibody specific for IL-18 and Avidin-Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) conjugate is added to each micro plate well successively and incubated. Free components are washed away. The substrate solution is added to each well. Only those wells that contain IL-18, biotinylated detection antibody and Avidin-HRP conjugate will appear blue in color. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of a sulphuric acid solution and the color turns yellow. The optical density (OD) is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450 nm +/- 2 nm. The OD value is proportional to the concentration of IL-18. You can calculate the concentration of IL-18 in the samples by comparing the OD of the samples to the standard curve.
Samples: Serum, plasma and other biological fluids
Assay Type: Quantitative Sandwich
Detection Range: 31.25-2000pg/mL
Sensitivity: 18.75pg/mL. Guinea pig IL-18 (Interleukin 18) ELISA Kit or ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbant assays) Kits in general, are a valuable research tool for a myriad of applications in a range of scientific settings. Currently, three major types of ELISA formats are used by researchers: sandwich, competitive and indirect. Most commercially available ELISA Kits are sandwich or competitive. Commercially available ELISA Kits contain wells that have been pre-coated with the capture antibody. Please refer to the product manual for the ELISA format of your specific kit. IL-18 also interacts with the following gene(s): CASP1, CXCL16, IFNG, IL18BP, IL18R1, IL18RAP, IL1B, STAT1, STAT3. Arthritis, Rheumatoid, Atherosclerosis, Disease Models, Animal, Heart Diseases, Hypersensitivity, Hypersensitivity, Immediate, Inflammation, Kidney Diseases, Lung Diseases, Necrosis are some of the diseases may be linked to Guinea pig IL-18 (Interleukin 18) ELISA Kit. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene. Cartilage, Intestine, Kidney, Ovary, Pancreas, Uterus tissues are correlated with this protein.
