The Quantikine Human TRAIL Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human TRAIL in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, cell lysates, and saliva. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human TRAIL and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human TRAIL 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 TRAIL
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.
Serum, EDTA Plasma, Heparin Plasma
Cell Culture Supernates, Cell Lysates, Saliva
The recovery of TRAIL spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Heparin Plasma (n=4)
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing or spiked with high concentrations of TRAIL were serially diluted with the appropriate Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.
Preparation and Storage
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL), also known as Apo-2 ligand and TNFSF10, is a type II transmembrane protein with a carboxy-terminal extracellular domain that exhibits homology to other TNF superfamily members. Among TNF superfamily members, TRAIL is the most homologous to Fas Ligand, sharing 28% amino acid sequence identity in their extracellular domains. Human TRAIL shares 65% amino acid sequence identity with mouse TRAIL and is active on mouse cells.
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.
