The Quantikine Human Amphiregulin Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid
phase ELISA designed to measure human Amphiregulin in cell culture
supernates, cell lysates serum, plasma, saliva, and urine. It contains E. coli-derived
recombinant human Amphiregulin and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor.
Results obtained with natural human Amphiregulin showed
linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using
the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can
be used to determine relative mass values for natural human Amphiregulin.
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration
were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision. Assays
were performed by at least three technicians using two lots of
The recovery of Amphiregulin spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked
with high concentrations of human Amphiregulin were serially diluted with
Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic
range of the assay.
Preparation and Storage
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Amphiregulin is a member of the EGF family of cytokines, which is comprised of at least ten proteins including EGF, TGF-alpha, HB-EGF, and the various heregulins. All of these cytokines are synthesized as transmembrane precursors and are characterized by the presence of one or several EGF structural units in their extracellular domain.
Refer to the product for complete assay procedure.
The conjugate must remain at 2-8 °C during use. Bring all other reagents and samples to room temperature before use. It is recommended that all samples, standards, and controls be assayed in duplicate.
Prepare all reagents, standard dilutions, and samples as directed in the product insert.
Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.
