Human IL-11 ELISA Kit (ab189569) is a single-wash 90 min sandwich ELISA designed for the quantitative measurement of IL-11 protein in cell culture supernatant, edta plasma, and serum. It uses our proprietary SimpleStep ELISA® technology. Quantitate Human IL-11 with 12 pg/ml sensitivity.
SimpleStep ELISA® technology employs capture antibodies conjugated to an affinity tag that is recognized by the monoclonal antibody used to coat our SimpleStep ELISA® plates. This approach to sandwich ELISA allows the formation of the antibody-analyte sandwich complex in a single step, significantly reducing assay time. See the SimpleStep ELISA® protocol summary in the image section for further details. Our SimpleStep ELISA® technology provides several benefits:
- Single-wash protocol reduces assay time to 90 minutes or less
- High sensitivity, specificity and reproducibility from superior antibodies
- Fully validated in biological samples
- 96-wells plate breakable into 12 x 8 wells strips
A 384-well SimpleStep ELISA® microplate (ab203359) is available to use as an alternative to the 96-well microplate provided with SimpleStep ELISA® kits.
IL-11 is multifunctional cytokine of IL-6 superfamily. It is secreted by many cell types. IL-11 is best known for its hematopoietic activity. IL-11directly stimulates the proliferation of hematopoietic stem cells and megakaryocyte progenitor cells and induces megakaryocyte maturation resulting in increased platelet production. During embryonic development L-11 signaling is required for normal development of placentation and survival to birth.

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.
Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.
MRC5 cells were grown in 10F HGDMEM media in the presence of 10 ng/mL phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) and 1 ng/mL IL-1 alpha (ab9616) for 48 hours. IL-11 concentrations were measured in serial dilutions of cell culture supernatants using this kit. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD, n = 2) are graphed.
MRC5 cells were grown in 10F HGDMEM media in the absence or presence of 10 ng/mL phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) and 1 ng/mL IL-1 alpha (ab9616) for 48 hours. IL-11 concentrations were measured in 8 and 16 X diluted cell culture supernatants using this kit. Interpolated data values adjusted for sample dilution are graphed (mean +/- SD, n=3) in ng of IL-11 per mL of cell culture supernatant.
