  • Product overview

    Note - This kit does not include cell culture plates. 96 well or 384 well plates which are appropriate for the requirements of your cell line must be purchased seperately. However an alternative support pack, ab111542 which contains five high quality 96-well microplates suitable for ICE is available.

    ab111541 is for use with suspension, apoptotic/detaching cells and adherent cell lines. The pack contains buffers and a protocol to perform ICE with Abcam ICE-validated antibodies. For an ICE assay, it is necessary to purchase both primary antibody(ies) and labeled secondary antibody(ies). Antibodies are sold separately, allowing customizing the target(s) of interest, method of detection and multiplexing.

    In-Cell ELISA uses quantitative immunocytochemistry to measure protein levels or post-translational modifications within cells. The cells are fixed to the bottom of a coated 96-well plate (not provided). Targets of interest are detected by primary antibodies, which are in turn quantified with labeled secondary antibody(ies). Abcam offers highly-specific, well-characterized primary antibodies, IRDye®- or HRP-labeled anti-mouse and anti-rabbit secondary antibodies, as well as IRDye®-labeled isotype specific anti-mouse antibodies. By combining antibodies of different species or isotype and appropriate IR-labeled secondary antibodies, two color multiplexing can be achieved in the 800/700 channels. IR imaging and quantification is performed using a LI-COR® Odyssey® or Aerius® system. HRP-labeled complexes are developed and quantified colorimerically using spectrophotometer.

    Two protocols are available when using this kit. Protocol (1) suspension cells and cells likely to detach under experimental conditions (for example, adherent cells undergoing apoptosis readily detach from a culture plate). Protocol (2) - A second protocol is available for normal adherent cells. These protocols can be used with any of Abcam's ICE-validated antibodies. Specific scientific information, background and working concentration for each antibody are detailed in each antibody's corresponding datasheet.

Application Abreviews Notes
In-Cell ELISA Use at an assay dependent dilution.


  • Cells are grown to ~80% confluency in a 96- or 384-well plate, a drug/other treatment is applied to stimulate a cellular response. The cells are then fixed and permeabilized, effectively "freezing" them. Primary antibodies are then added which bind to their intended targets within the mitochondria or other subcellular compartment. After incubation, the unbound primary antibodies are washed away and secondary antibodies are added. These secondaries are conjugated to either IRDyes® or to an enzyme label (HRP or AP) for the colorimetric versions of the assays. Unbound secondaries are washed away, reaction buffer is added for the colorimetric assays, and the signal is read on a suitable instrument for the kit type.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Ich möchte Ihnen hiermit bestätigen welche Platten wir für den In-Cell ELISA empfehlen:

Schwarze Platte mit durchsichtigem Boden für Fluoreszenz-Anwendungen

Wir empfehlen Platten, die mit Aminen (Aminogruppen) beschichtet sind, da diese ein gleichmäßigeres Aussähen ermöglichen.
