Cytokine ELISA kits
LumiKine™ is InvivoGen’s new immunoassay for rapid, sensitive and specific detection of cytokines. By replacing the absorbance-based enzymatic detection reaction of a standard ELISA with its lightning-fast Lucia luciferase/QUANTI-Luc™ bioluminescence detection system, InvivoGen has created an assay that can save you precious time in the laboratory. Unlike many ELISA kits, which are based on E. coli-produced cytokines, LumiKine™ has been designed using cytokines produced in mammalian cells, for accurate detection of species-specific mammalian cytokines.
LumiKine™ kits are currently available for human and mouse type I interferons, as well as IL-1α and IL-1β. They allow you to detect the cytokine in a broad concentration range that makes quantification and calibration curves a snap.
• Rapid - Optimized to reduce assay time - With LumiKine™ Xpress kits, save at least 1 hour compared to standard ELISAs
• Specific - Antibodies raised against natural cytokines by DNA immunization
• Precise - Wide concentration range
• Economical - Each kit contains enough reagents to run five ELISA plates
Four step bioluminescent ELISA kits
LumiKine™ kits are bioluminescent ELISA kits designed to quantify the levels of human or mouse cytokines in cell culture supernatant, serum and plasma samples. They include a capture antibody, a biotinylated secondary antibody and a streptavidin-Lucia conjugate for detection. The streptavidin-Lucia conjugate can be replaced by the streptavidin conjugate of your choice.
Three step bioluminescent ELISA kits - Even faster!
LumiKine™ Xpress kits are bioluminescent ELISA kits that enable even faster detection of the cytokines than do the LumiKine™ kits. The Lucia luciferase enzyme is directly fused to the detection antibody, eliminating the biotinylated antibody-streptavidin conjugate incubation step.
