Sandwich ELISA analysis of human IL-5 was performed by coating wells of a 96-well plate with 110ul of a human IL-5 monoclonal antibody (Product # M551) in duplicate at 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 9ug/ml for at least 12 hours. The plate was blocked with a proprietary blocking solution for 1-4 hours at room temperature, and 50ul of mouse IL-5 recombinant protein (Product # SMIL5) was added in replicates of twelve at 400, 160, 64, 25.6, 10.24, and 0pg/ml for 1 hour at room temperature. The plate was washed and incubated 50ul of a biotinylated IL-5 monoclonal antibody (Product # M550B) was added to all test wells at 0.5ug/ml for 1 hour at room temperature. The plate was washed, then incubated with 100ul per well of Streptavidin-HRP (Product # N504) at a 1:10,000 dilution for 30 minutes at room temperature. Detection was performed with 100ul per well of Ultra TMB substrate (Product # 34028) for 30 minutes at room temperature in the dark. The plate was then stopped with 0.16M sulfuric acid. Absorbances were read on a spectrophotometer at 450-550nm.

International reference standard is not available. Calibrated to a Thermo reference standard.
Lyophilized product is shipped on cold packs. Stable until expiration if stored desiccated at 2-8°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.
