Human EGF XL Luminex® Performance Assay Summary

Panel Luminex Performance Human XL Cytokine Panel
Assay Type Magnetic bead-based multiplex assay for the Luminex® platform
Format 1 x 96-well microplate and Magnetic antibody-coated beads

Analytes Detected Please see analyte list in assay customization tool below.
Performance Validation Our Luminex High Performance Assays undergo our most extensive validation testing. All Luminex High Performance Assay Panels are validated for use with serum and plasma samples. Some High Performance Assays are additionally validated for cell culture supernatants, milk, saliva, or urine, as indicated on the individual product data sheets. Luminex High Performance Assays are tested for sensitivity (three-quarters the low standard), intra-assay precision, inter-assay precision, and to ensure assay linearity for validated sample types. Recovery values for individual samples in validated sample types are also tested. Validation data for each analyte can be found in the product datasheet.

Bead Set Contents
  • User-mix antibody-coated Magnetic beads in individual vials

Recommended Sample Types: Cell culture supernates, serum, and platelet-poor plasma

Components: Human EGF Magnetic Microparticles (Part 898847) is supplied as a 100X concentrated stock (0.075 mL) with preservatives.

Other Supplies Required: Magnetic Luminex® Performance Assay Human XL Discovery Base Kit (R&D Systems®, Catalog # LUXLM000).

Sensitivity: The Minimum Detectable Dose (MDD) was determined by adding two standard deviations to the mean MFI of twenty zero standard replicates and calculating the corresponding concentration.
Six assays were evaluated, and the MDD of human EGF ranged from 0.743-3.70 pg/mL. The mean MDD was 1.21 pg/mL.

Correlation: This assay has been correlated to the Quantikine® ELISA Kit.

Specificity: This assay recognizes natural and recombinant human EGF.

Bead Region: 33


Intra-assay Precision (precision within an assay) - Two samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-assay Precision (precision between assays) - Two samples of known concentration were tested in thirty separate assays to assess precision between assays.

More Information About Magnetic Bead-based Multiplex Kits For The Luminex® Platform

Magnetic Luminex High Performance Assays are designed for use with the Luminex MAGPIX CCD Imager. Alternatively, kits can be used with the Luminex 100/200™ or FLEXMAP 3D, dual laser, flow-based sorting and detection platforms.

Analyte-specific antibodies are pre-coated onto color-coded microparticles. Microparticles, standards, and samples are pipetted into wells and the immobilized antibodies bind the analytes of interest. After washing away any unbound substances, a biotinylated antibody cocktail specific to the analytes of interest is added to each well. Following a wash to remove any unbound biotinylated antibody, Streptavidin-Phycoerythrin conjugate (Streptavidin-PE), which binds to the biotinylated detection antibodies, is added to each well. A final wash removes unbound Streptavidin-PE and the microparticles are resuspended in buffer and read using the Luminex or Bio-Plex analyzer. One laser is bead-specific and determines which analyte is being detected. A magnet in the analyzer captures and holds the superparaMagnetic microparticles in a monolayer. Two spectrally distinct Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) illuminate the beads. One LED identifies the analyte that is being detected and the second LED determines the magnitude of the PE-derived signal, which is in direct proportion to the amount of analyte bound. Each well is imaged with a CCD camera. Kits can also be used with Luminex 100/200 or a Bio-Rad Bio-Plex dual laser, flow-based systems.

Scientific Data

EGF XL Cytokine Luminex Panel Standard Curves

Background: EGF

EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) is expressed as a transmembrane protein that is proteolytically cleaved to generate soluble forms. It signals through EGF R/ErbB1 which heterodimerizes with ErbB2, ErbB3, or ErbB4 and can also associate with PDGF R beta and HGF R/c-MET. During development, EGF regulates thymocyte differentiation, neuroglia production, and adipocyte maturation. In the adult, EGF plays a role in mammary gland lactogenesis, fibroblast mitosis, dissociation of the extracellular matrix, and cell migration.

Long Name
Epidermal Growth Factor
Entrez Gene IDs
1950 (Human); 13645 (Mouse); 25313 (Rat)
Alternate Names
beta-urogastrone; EGF; epidermal growth factor (beta-urogastrone); epidermal growth factor; hEGF; HOMG4; pro-epidermal growth factor; URG; Urogastrone
