Product Summary

The Quantikine® HS Human IFN-gamma Immunoassay is a 4.0 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human IFN-gamma in serum and plasma. It contains HEK293-expressed recombinant human IFN-gamma and antibodies raised against the recombinant protein. Results obtained using natural human IFN-gamma 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-gamma.


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

The recovery of human IFN-gamma spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
EDTA Plasma (n=4) 99 90-108
Heparin Plasma (n=4) 99 92-109
Serum (n=4) 97 85-109


To assess the linearity of the assay, samples spiked with high concentrations of human IFN-gamma were serially diluted with calibrator diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Background: IFN-gamma

IFN-gamma (Interferon-gamma) is the prototype proinflammatory cytokine and is produced by a variety of immune cells under inflammatory conditions, notably by T cells and NK cells. It plays a key role in host defense by promoting the development and activation of Th1 cells, chemoattraction and activation of monocytes and macrophages, upregulation of antigen presentation molecules, and immunoglobulin class switching in B cells. It also exhibits antiviral, antiproliferative, and apoptotic effects. In addition, IFN-gamma functions as an anti-inflammatory mediator by promoting the development of regulatory T cells and inhibiting Th17 cell differentiation. IFN-gamma dimers signal through a receptor complex of two IFN-gamma R1 and two IFN-gamma R2 subunits.

  1. Assay Diluent RD1-63 contains visible precipitate. Is this acceptable to use?

    • A small amount of precipitate is expected and acceptable in Assay Diluent RD1-63. Variability has been observed between vials and diluent lots. It may not fully resolubilize but this will not impact assay performance. It is not recommended to filter the precipitate.
