  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IL-8 Human in vitro ELISA Set is designed for the quantitative measurement of IL-8 in cell culture supernatants, buffered solutions, serum, plasma and other body fluids.


    The IL8 ELISA Set includes both the capture and the detection antibodies as well as Horse-Radish peroxidase conjugated Streptavidin (HRP-Strep) and TMB which are the reagents used in the colour development step.


    This ELISA set is intended to measure human IL8 in cell -culture supernatants, as well as in serum and plasma samples. The enclosed procedures provide general guidelines for ELISA preparation. This procedure may need some optimization depending on the plastic, matrix, standard range.


    Sensitivity: < 29 pg / ml

  • RelevanceIL-8 is a chemotactic factor that attracts neutrophils, basophils, and T-cells, but not monocytes. It is also involved in neutrophil activation. It is released from several cell types in response to an inflammatory stimulus. IL-8(6-77) has a 5-10-fold higher activity on neutrophil activation, IL-8(5-77) has increased activity on neutrophil activation and IL-8(7-77) has a higher affinity to receptors CXCR1 and CXCR2 as compared to IL-8(1-77), respectively.

    Thank you for contacting us. Overnight Incubation of plate at 4C is sort of general recommendation we provide to our customers. 3-4 hours at 4C can also be tried; the assay should be OK However in case of no readings we would be suggesting the over...
