  • Product overview

    IL-10 in vitro CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of IL-10 protein in human serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatant samples

    The CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material.  CatchPoint HRP Development Solution containing the Stoplight Red Substrate is added. During incubation, the substrate is catalyzed by HRP generating a fluorescent product. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured in a fluorescence plater reader at 530/570/590 nm Excitation/Cutoff/Emission.

    Interleukin 10 (IL-10) is a cytokine involved in immunoregulation through the promotion of Th2 response and inhibition of Th1 responses. It is produced by cells of hematopoietic origin, keratinocytes, placental cytotrophoblasts, and hepatic stellate cells.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab229436 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
Sandwich ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • SimpleStep ELISA technology allows the formation of the antibody-antigen complex in one single step, reducing assay time to 90 minutes. Add samples or standards and antibody mix to wells all at once, incubate, wash, and add your final substrate. See protocol for a detailed step-by-step guide.


  • Standard Curve comparison between human IL-10 current (new) SimpleStep ELISA kit and original ELISA kit. The current SimpleStep ELISA kit shows increased sensitivity.

  • The IL-10 standard curve was prepared as described in Section 10. Raw data generated on SpectraMax M4 Multi-Mode Microplate Reader is shown in the table. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • The concentrations of IL-10 were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the IL-10 standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are as follows: stimulated PBMC cell culture supernatant 50%. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean IL-10 concentration was determined to be 462 pg/ml in stimulated PBMC cell culture supernatant. PBMC cell culture supernatant samples were stimulated for 46 hours with 1.5% PHA. Unstimulated PBMC cell culture supernatant samples were also measured; all values were below the detectable range of the assay.
