Product Summary
The Parameter LTB4 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour forward sequential competitive enzyme immunoassay designed to measure LTB4 in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma.

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

The recovery of LTB4 spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Media (n=4) 95 86-114
EDTA Plasma (n=4) 91 82-112
Heparin Plasma (n=4) 98 82-115
Serum (n=4) 98 82-118
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples spiked with high concentrations of LTB4 were serially diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Preparation and Storage
  • Storage
    Store the unopened product at -20 to -70 °C. Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Do not use past expiration date.
Background: Leukotriene B4/LTB4
Leukotriene B4 (LTB4) is a major product of arachidonic acid metabolism and is formed via the 5-lipoxygenase pathway. LTB4 stimulates leukocyte functions including lysosomal enzyme release, adhesion, and aggregation of polymorphonuclear leukocytes. LTB4 has been implicated as a potent mediator of inflammatory diseases and immunoregulation.
  • Alternate Names:
    Leukotriene B4; LTB4
