  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IL-10 (Interleukin-10) Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of IL-10 in supernatants, buffered soloutions, serum and plasma samples.

    A monoclonal antibody specific for IL-10 has been coated onto the wells of the microtiter strips provided. Samples, including standards of known IL-10 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-10 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-10 present in the samples. 

    This kit will recognize both endogenous and recombinant Human IL-10.

  • IL-10 detected in supernatants from control cells (C) or cells stimulated for 24 hours with 50 ng x mL-1 of PMA (ab120297), with the addition of 1 ug x mL-1 of LPS (Sigma) (P/L) for the last 6 hours. PBMCs were stimulated for 48 hours with 2 % PHA-M (LifeTechnologies). Results shown after background signal was subtracted (duplicates +/- SD).

IL10 human macrophage secretion on day 3

Excellent Excellent 5/5 (Ease of Use)
IL10 secretion by human macrophages isolated by negative selection in culture for 3 days.
Kit easy to use, the assay takes about 5.30hr, excellent specificity as shown by higher secretion by M2a macrophages (MSCF+IL4) and M2c (MCSF+TGFb) compared to the others subtypes (M0=MCSF M1=MSCF+IFNg DEX=MCSF+Dexamethason)
