  • Product overview

    As of March 6, 2018, Human MCP-1 SimpleStep ELISA® kit has been re-developed. We have identified new recombinant monoclonal antibodies to provide improved performance and consistency when quantifying MCP-1 protein in human serum, plasma, urine, and cell culture supernatant samples.

    The 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. TMB substrate is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.


  • Notes

    MCP-1 (CCL2) is a chemotactic factor that attracts monocytes and basophils but not neutrophils or eosinophils. Augments monocyte anti-tumor activity. Has been implicated in the pathogenesis of diseases characterized by monocytic infiltrates, like psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis or atherosclerosis. May be involved in the recruitment of monocytes into the arterial wall during the disease process of atherosclerosis.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab179886 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.


  • The MCP1 standard curve was prepared as described in Section 10. Raw data values are shown in the table. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • The concentrations of MCP1 were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the MCP1 standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are as follows: serum 100%, plasma (citrate) 25%, plasma (heparin), 25%, plasma (EDTA), urine 100%, and PHA stimulated PBMC supernatant 0.25%. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean MCP1 concentration was determined to be 72 pg/mL in serum, 96 pg/mL in plasma (citrate), 101 pg/mL in plasma (heparin), 88 pg/mL plasma (EDTA), 144 pg/mL in urine, and 70217 pg/mL in PHA stimulated PBMC supernatant.

  • Interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean MCP1 concentration was determined to be 113 pg/mL with a range of 58 - 247 pg/mL.
