Sandwich ELISA analysis of human IL-6 was performed using a Human IL-6 Colorimetric ELISA kit (Product # EH2IL6) by loading 50 ul per well of a mouse anti-human IL-6 biotinylated antibody (Product # M621B) at a concentration of 0.035 ug/ml and 50 ul of Human IL-6 Recombinant Protein (Product # SIL6) at 400, 160, 64, 25.6, 10.24, and 0 pg/ml (both in quadruplicate) across a 4 ug/ml mouse anti-human IL-6 (Product # M620) pre-coated plate. The plate was incubated for 2 hours at room temperature, washed, and incubated with 100 ul per well of Streptavidin-HRP (Product # N504) in all test wells at 1:7000 for 30 minutes at room temperature. Detection was performed using 1-Step Ultra TMB Substrate (Product # 34028) for 30 minutes at room temperature in the dark. The plate was stopped with 0.16M sulfuric acid. Absorbances were read on a spectrophotometer at 450-550 nm.

The human IL-6 Standard is calibrated against NIBSC IL-6 Reference Standard lot #88/514. 1 Thermo pg = 1 NIBSC pg = 0.104 NIBSC units.
Lyophilized product is shipped on cold packs. Stable until expiration if stored desiccated at -20°C. Reconstituted cytokine standards should be stored in aliquots at -70°C. Each aliquot should be used only once and discarded afterwards. Stability of reconstituted and frozen cytokine standards may vary. Controls should be run with each standard curve.
Sufficient For: ELISA standard curve with replicates or as a control in Western blots.
1000 pg/ml when reconstituted at the recommend volume.
Reconstitute with distilled water at volume indicated on label. Use or freeze product within 1 hour of reconstitution.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. Not for resale without express authorization.
