Sample Type
Whole Cells
Please see the product datasheet

* Provided that the recommended microplates, buffers, diluents, substrates and solutions are used, and the assay is run as summarized in the Assay Procedure provided.

ELISpot kits are highly sensitive, microplate-based assays for the detection of cytokine secreting cells. This kit is designed for the detection and enumeration of mouse IFN-gamma. Complete ELISpot kits are ready-to-run and require no assay development or refinement.

This ELISpot assay employs a capture antibody specific for mouse IFN-gamma, pre-coated onto a PVDF-backed microplate. Appropriately stimulated cells are pipetted directly into the wells and the immobilized antibody in the immediate vicinity of the secreting cells binds secreted mouse IFN-gamma. Following wash steps and incubation with a biotinylated detection antibody, alkaline-phosphatase conjugated to streptavidin is added. Unbound enzyme is subsequently removed by washing and a substrate solution (BCIP/NBT) is added. A blue-black colored precipitate forms at the sites of cytokine localization and appears as spots, with each individual spot representing an individual mouse IFN-gamma secreting cell. The spots can be counted with an automated ELISpot reader system or manually using a stereomicroscope.


  • Detect and quantitate individual cells secreting mouse IFN-gamma
  • High sensitivity - ELISpot assays can measure responses with frequencies well below 1 in 100,000 cells
  • No in vitro expansion of cells required
  • High-throughput - ELISpot assays use only a small number of primary cells

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.
