    ab133992 is for simultaneous detection of 34 Rat Cytokines. Suitable for all sample types.

    Targets: Activin A, Agrin, Thymus Chemokine-1, B7-2/CD86, CINC-1, CINC-2alpha, CINC-3, CNTF, Fas Ligand, Fractalkine, GM-CSF, ICAM-1, IFN-gamma, IL-1 R6, IL-10, IL-13, IL-1alpha, IL-1beta, IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, Leptin, LIX, L-Selectin, MCP-1, MIP-3alpha, MMP-8, beta-NGF, PDGF-AA, Prolactin R, RAGE, TIMP-1, TNF-alpha, VEGF.

    Cytokine arrays are an antibody-pair-based assay, analogous to ELISA, but using a membrane as a substrate rather than a plate. Capture antibodies are supplied arrayed/spotted on a membrane with each pair of spots representing a different analyte. Sample is added (0.2-1ml of 1 sample to each membrane), and then paired biotinylated detector antibodies and streptavidin HRP. The cytokine array is analyzed using the same methods as a chemiluminescent western blot. Comparison between samples can be by eye or using densitometry software for a semi-quantitative comparison.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Am I assuming correctly that you are talking about Step 5, starting on page 21 and continue on page 22?

According to the protocol I downloaded from the virtual datasheet, it should read:

5. Gently pipette 500 μl of the Detection Buffers mixture onto
each membrane (e.g., 500 μl = 250 μl of Detection Buffer C
and 250 μl of Detection Buffer D) and incubate for 2 minutes
at RT (do not rock or shake). Immediately afterwards,
proceed to Step 6.

I have attached the pdf file you can download from our website to this email.

To avoid anymore confusion, may I ask where you got this information from? Was it into the little protocol book we send out with the kit? Please let me know if this is the case, so we can update it immediately.
