  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IL-5 Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of IL-5 in Human serum, plasma, buffered solutions and supernatants.

    A monoclonal antibody specific for IL-5 has been coated onto the wells of the microtiter strips provided. Samples, including standards of known IL-5 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-5 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-5 present in the samples. 

    This kit will recognize both endogenous and recombinant Human IL-5.
