  • Product overview

    Abcam’s TARC Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human TARC in serum, plasma and cell culture supernates.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human TARC coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and TARC present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human TARC antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of TARC bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

    Get results in 90 minutes with Human TARC ELISA Kit (CCL17) (ab183366) from our SimpleStep ELISA® range.

CCL17 secretion by human macrophages

Excellent Excellent 5/5 (Ease of Use)
CCL17 secretion by human macrophages isolated by negative selection in culture for 3 and 7 days.
Kit easy to use, the assay takes about 5.30hr, excellent specificity as shown by higher secretion by M2a macrophages (MSCF+IL4) on day 7 compared to the others subtypes (M0=MCSF M1=MSCF+IFNg DEX=MCSF+Dexamethason IL10=MCSF+IL10 TGFb=MCSF+TGFb)

Thanks for your inquiry. Based upon sequence homology, I would not expect any of the antibodies to cross react with mouse as there is only a 64% homology. Please let me know if you require further assistance.
