Product Summary
The Quantikine Human MIG Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human MIG in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant human MIG and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human MIG 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 naturally occurring MIG.

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 MIG spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Media (n=4) 92 86-98
EDTA Plasma (n=5) 100 95-110
Heparin Plasma (n=5) 109 101-114
Serum (n=5) 108 101-113
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples spiked with high concentrations of MIG were serially 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: CXCL9/MIG
MIG, a member of the CXC subfamily of chemokines that lack the ELR domain, was initially identified as a lymphokine-activated gene in mouse macrophages. MIG is a chemoattractant for activated T cells and TIL, but not for neutrophils or monocytes.
    • Entrez Gene IDs
      4283 (Human); 17329 (Mouse); 246759 (Rat);
    • Alternate Names
      chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 9; CMK; crg-10; C-X-C motif chemokine 9; CXCL9; Gamma-interferon-induced monokine; Humig; MIG; MIGSmall-inducible cytokine B9; monokine induced by gamma interferon; SCYB9Monokine induced by interferon-gamma;

    Assay Procedure
    Refer to the product for complete assay procedure.

    Bring all reagents and samples to room temperature before use. It is recommended that all samples, standards, and controls be assayed in duplicate.
    1.   Prepare all reagents, standard dilutions, and samples as directed in the product insert.
    2.   Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.

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

    5. 100 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
    6.   Add 100 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 3 times for a total of 4 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 2 hours.
    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.
