LumiKine™ Xpress hIFN-β 2.0
LumiKine™ Xpress hIFN-β 2.0

Rapid bioluminescent human IFN-β ELISA kit

LumiKine™ Xpress hIFN-β 2.0 is InvivoGen’s second-generation bioluminescent human interferon-beta (hIFN-β) ELISA, using a Lucia luciferase-conjugated detection antibody. LumiKine™ Xpress hIFN-β 2.0 is an optimized ‘sandwich’ ELISA kit designed to rapidly and reliably measure the concentration of hIFN-β in various biological samples (cell culture supernatant, serum, and plasma).

After a single 2-hour incubation, the detection of hIFN-β is instantaneously determined using QUANTI-Luc™4 Reagent, a Lucia luciferase detection reagent. The bioluminescent signal is readily assessed by luminometry.

Features of LumiKine™ Xpress hIFN-β 2.0:

  • Single incubation: 2 hours
  • Limit of Detection: 10 pg/ml
  • Specificity: Human IFN-β
  • Optimized antibody pairing: The capture and detection antibodies bind to different epitopes of the cytokine
  • No cross-reactivity with hIFN-α2, murine (m)IFN-α2 or mIFN-β

LumiKine™ Xpress hIFN-β 2.0 is provided with a standard recombinant hIFN-β produced in mammalian cells, to ensure the most accurate and sensitive calibration for the measurement of unknown levels of hIFN-β.

Determining unknown concentrations using LumiKine™ Xpress hIFN-β 2.0

Figure 1: (A) A 7-point standard curve (beginning at 1000 pg/ml) was generated using a two-fold serial dilution of the provided hIFN-β standard. (B) THP1-Blue™ NF-κB cells (cultured in RPMI media) were either stimulated with 2’3’ cGAMP (30 μg/ml), a STING agonist or left unstimulated. After 24 hours, the supernatant was isolated and the concentration of hIFN-β in both samples was quantified using LumiKine™ Xpress hIFN-β 2.0.
