The Quantikine Human ICAM-1/CD54 Non Allele-specific Immunoassay is a 2.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human ICAM-1 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human ICAM-1 and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human ICAM-1 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 ICAM-1.
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess intra-assay precision
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty separate assays to assess inter-assay precision. Assays were performed by at least three technicians using two lots of components
The recovery of human ICAM-1 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 ICAM-1 were diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
ICAM-1 (intercellular adhesion molecule-1), also known as CD54, is a transmembrane protein that is upregulated on endothelial and epithelial cells at sites of inflammation. It mediates the vascular adhesion and paracellular migration of leukocytes expressing activated LFA-1 (CD11a/CD18) and Mac-1 (CD11b/CD18). It also binds several non-integrin ligands including CD43/Sialophorin, Fibrinogen, Hyaluronan, rhinoviruses, and Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes. Soluble ICAM-1 promotes angiogenesis and serves an indicator of vascular endothelial cell activation or damage. Elevated levels of soluble ICAM-1 are associated with cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, organ transplant dysfunction, oxidant stress, increased abdominal fat mass, hypertension, liver disease, certain malignancies, and cerebral malaria.

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.
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.
100 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
Add 100 µL of Standard, control, or sample to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 1 hour on a horizontal orbital microplate shaker.
Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 3 times for a total of 4 washes.
200 µL Conjugate
Add 200 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 1 hour on the shaker.
Aspirate and wash 4 times.
200 µL Substrate Solution
Add 200 µL Substrate Solution to each well. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes on the benchtop. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.
50 µL Stop Solution
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.
