Abcam’s IL-6 Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of IL-6 in Human serum, plasma, buffered solutions or supernatants.
A monoclonal antibody specific for IL-6 has been coated onto the wells of the microtiter strips provided. Samples, including standards of known IL-6 concentrations, control specimens or unknowns are pipetted into these wells. During the first incubation, the standards or samples and a biotinylated monoclonal antibody specific for IL-6 are simultaneously incubated. After washing, the enzyme Streptavidin-HRP, that binds the biotinylated antibody is added, incubated and washed. A TMB substrate solution is added which acts on the bound enzyme to induce a colored reaction product. The intensity of this colored product is directly proportional to the concentration of IL-6 present in the samples.
This kit will recognize both endogenous and recombinant Human IL-6.

Standard curve of human IL-6 with background signal subtracted (duplicates; +/- SD).
IL-6 measured in cell culture supernatants (diluted 1/50-1/1250) from control or treated (48 hours with 2% PHA-M; LifeTechnologies) PBMCs (duplicates +/- SD).
IL-6 detected in positive control (Pos CTRL; ab46027), and in supernatants (diluted 1/1-1/5) from control cells or cells stimulated for 24 hours with 50 nanogram x mL-1 of PMA (ab120297) with 1 microgram x mL-1 of LPS (Sigma) for the last 6 hours (PMA/LPS).
Representative Standard Curve using ab46027
Dilution curves of human IL-6 (ab46027) and NIBSC standard (89/548). One ng of standard IL-6 corresponds to 87.2 (+/- 8.0) IU NIBSC standard. Background signal subtracted (duplicates; +/- SD).
