Product Summary
The Quantikine Human Eotaxin Immunoassay is a 3.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure human Eotaxin in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant human Eotaxin and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to quantitate recombinant human Eotaxin accurately. Results obtained measuring natural human eotaxin showed dose-response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the recombinant Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human Eotaxin.

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.

The recovery of Eotaxin spiked to three different levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Media (n=5) 100 86-111
Citrate Plasma (n=5) 99 81-117
EDTA Plasma (n=5) 99 82-115
Serum (n=5) 95 83-109
To assess the linearity of the assay, five samples were spiked with high concentrations of Eotaxin in various matrices and diluted with the appropriate Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Preparation and Storage
  • Storage
    Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Background: CCL11/Eotaxin
CCL11/Eotaxin is a chemokine that interacts with CCR3 to induce eosinophil, basophil, dendritic cell, and Th2 cell chemoattraction during inflammatory and allergic reactions. Its production is upregulated in airway epithelium, alveolar macrophages, eosinophils, smooth muscle cells, chondrocytes, and fibroblasts following allergen or inflammatory challenge. CCL11 is also involved in the growth of myeloid cell progenitors and the differentiation of mast cells.

    3. 100 µL Assay Diluent
    4.   Add 100 µL of Assay Diluent to each well.

    5. 50 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
    6.   Add 50 µL of Standard, control, or sample to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours.
    7.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process twice for a total of 3 washes.

    8. 200 µL Conjugate
    9.   Add 200 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 1 hour.
    10.   Aspirate and wash 4 times.

    11. 200 µL Substrate Solution
    12.   Add 200 µL Substrate Solution to each well. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.

    13. 50 µL Stop Solution
    14.   Add 50 µL of Stop Solution to each well. Read at 450 nm within 30 minutes. Set wavelength correction to 540 nm or 570 nm.
