Product Summary
The Quantikine Human MIF Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure human MIF in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, urine, and human milk. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant human MIF and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human MIF 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 MIF.

Precision
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision

Preparation and Storage
  • Storage
    Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Background: MIF
MIF (macrophage migration inhibitory factor) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that is released during microbial infection, ARDS, rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. It signals through CXCR4, CXCR7, or complexes of CD74-CD44. MIF exhibits potent paracrine and autocrine stimulatory effects on cell growth and survival and enhances the production of inflammatory cytokines. It also inhibits the effectiveness of immunosuppressive glucocorticoids.
