Product Summary

The Quantikine® Human IFN-beta Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure human IFN-beta in cell culture supernates. It contains CHO cell-expressed recombinant human IFN-beta and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human IFN-beta 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 natural human IFN-beta.


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

Scientific Data

Human IFN-beta Quantikine ELISA Spiked Recovery Competitor Comparision IFN-beta is spiked at three known concentrations throughout the range of the assay and run to measure response of the spiked sample matrix. R&D Systems recovery is 98% compared to 55% for the top competitor.

Human IFN-beta Quantikine ELISA Natural Linearity Competitor Comparison Samples containing high concentrations of IFN-beta in various matrices are diluted with appropriate Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay. R&D Systems linearity is between 103%-112% compared to 119%-170% for the top competitor.

Background: IFN-beta

Interferon-beta (IFN-beta) is a cytokine that is produced by fibroblasts and pathogen-exposed dendritic cells, macrophages, and endothelial cells. It signals through the heterodimeric IFN-alpha/beta Receptor. IFN-beta-deficient mice show increased susceptibility to experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), a disease model of human multiple sclerosis (MS). Furthermore, IFN-beta has been shown to suppress the Th17 cell response in both MS and EAE and has commonly been used as a treatment for MS.
