Product Summary

The Quantikine Human HE4/WFDC2 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human HE4/WFDC2 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, saliva, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human HE4/WFDC2 and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human HE4/WFDC2 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 human HE4/WFDC2.


The recovery of HE4/WFDC2 spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Media (n=8) 103 95-114
EDTA Plasma (n=4) 108 94-115
Heparin Plasma (n=4) 107 96-115
Saliva (n=4) 100 98-107
Serum (n=4) 104 92-115
Urine (n=4) 98 85-111


To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing high concentrations of HE4/WFDC2 were serially diluted with calibrator diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

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. 50 µL Assay Diluent
  4.   Add 50 µL of the appropriate 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 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.
