The IFNα Human ELISA kit is designed to detect and quantify the level of human interferon alpha (IFNα) in media using 96-well plates and a microplate reader. The IFNα ELISA kit is manufactured by PBL Assay Science. This is an alternate product for Cat. No. KHC4012.

Easy-to-run sandwich ELISA

• Results typically in one day—rapid 3 hr, 15 min incubation protocol
• Pre-coated removable 8-well strips
• Rigorous validation

Get Accuracy with Simplicity
The IFNα Human ELISA Kit utilizes a straightforward, rapid protocol with a total assay incubation time of only 3 hours and 15 minutes. A capture antibody specific for IFNα has been coated onto the wells of the 96-well plate provided. At the beginning of the first incubation, standards of known IFNα content and unknown samples are pipetted into the wells where the IFNα antigen binds to the immobilized capture antibody. After washing, detection antibody is added to the wells. During the second incubation, the detection antibody binds to the immobilized IFNα protein captured during the first incubation. After washing, HRP solution is added; this binds to the detection antibody to complete the four member sandwich. Following a third incubation and wash step to remove all unbound enzyme, a substrate solution (TMB) is added. The bound enzyme acts upon it to produce a colored reaction product. The optical density of the color is directly proportional to the concentration of IFNα present in the original specimen and can be read on a standard microplate reader.

The Ready-to-Use IFNα Human ELISA Kit Contains These Reagents, Buffers, and Supplies:
• Antibody Coated 96-Well Plate
• Human IFNα Standard
• Diluent Buffer
• Detection Antibody Concentrate
• Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) Conjugate Concentrate
• HRP Diluent
• Wash Buffer Concentrate
• Stabilized TMB Chromogen
• Stop Solution
• Plate Covers

Get Results Quickly and Economically
The kit comes with a capture antibody precoated to the plate, eliminating an overnight coating process. The plates are machine coated to provide low variability well-to-well. Furthermore, the plate comes as removable strips allowing you to run as few samples as you want. In addition, the standards provided in the kit can be used to get quantitative results off the standard curve and/or as a positive control.
