The Thermo Scientific In-Cell ELISA Colorimetric Detection Kit is a simple and convenient method for quantification of intracellular protein levels in whole cells.

Features of the In-Cell ELISA Colorimetric Detection Kit:

• Colorimetric—compatible with standard ELISA plate readers
• Simple, fast assay format
• Ability to perform multiplex experiments
• No special sample preparation required
• Higher throughput compared with western blotting
• Cost efficient (one well vs. one lane) compared to western blotting

While traditional western blot analysis is time consuming and only semi-quantitative, the in-cell ELISA is an accurate method to determine relative protein levels and degree of post-translational modification (PTM) among various cell types. The In-cell ELISA may be performed in 96- or 384-well microplates, is scalable and conserves cell culture and treatment reagents. Because assay data are measured using a standard ELISA plate reader or infrared imaging system, the results are readily available for analysis. Also, the assay is amenable to automation, which is ideal for siRNA studies and drug screens.

• High throughput determination of relative protein expression levels
• Monitor dose-dependent post-translational protein modification
• Multiplex analysis of targets in multiple cell lines

The In-Cell ELISA Colorimetric Detection Kit enables the levels of target proteins to be compared in different wells. The relative amount of protein is determined using target-specific primary antibodies and a horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-conjugated detection reagent. Following the colorimetric measurement of HRP activity, the provided whole cell stain, Janus Green, is used to determine cell number. After staining, the results are analyzed by normalizing the absorbance (HRP activity) values to cell number, which adjusts for the cell plating differences.
