Product Summary

The Quantikine Mouse/Rat IL-22 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure mouse and rat IL-22 in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse IL-22 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural mouse or rat IL-22 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 mouse and rat IL-22.


The recovery of IL-22 spiked to three levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Mouse Cell Culture Supernates (n=4) 98 93-103
Mouse EDTA Plasma (n=4) 95 86-106
Mouse Heparin Plasma (n=4) 94 83-102
Mouse Serum (n=4) 91 84-99
Rat Cell Culture Supernates (n=4) 98 91-102
Rat EDTA Plasma (n=4) 97 91-111
Rat Heparin Plasma (n=4) 93 88-101
Rat Serum (n=4) 96 90-107


To assess the linearity of the assay, samples spiked with high concentrations of IL-22 in each matrix were diluted with the appropriate Calibrator Diluent and assayed.

Background: IL-22

IL-22 (Interleukin-22) is a cytokine that induces the production of reactive oxygen species, IL-6, IL-10, and TNF-alpha as well as neutrophil infiltration during inflammation. It also supports the integrity of epithelial barriers and induces epithelial cell proliferation during wound healing. IL-22 signals through a receptor complex consisting of IL-22 R and IL-10 R beta. IL-10 R beta is a shared component of the receptor complexes for IL-10, IL-26, IL-28, and IL-29. IL-22 additionally binds to IL-22BP which blocks the interaction of IL-22 with IL-22 R.

Assay Procedure

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.
  1.   Prepare all reagents, standard dilutions, and samples as directed in the product insert.
  2.   Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.

  3. 100 µL Assay Diluent
  4.   Add 100 µL of Assay Diluent to each well.

  5. 50 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
  6.   Add 50 µL of Standard, Control, or sample to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on a horizontal orbital microplate shaker.
  7.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 4 times for a total of 5 washes.

  8. 200 µL Conjugate
  9.   Add 200 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on the shaker.
  10.   Aspirate and wash 5 times.

  11. 120 µL Substrate Solution
  12.   Add 120 µL Substrate Solution to each well. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes on the benchtop. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.

  13. 120 µL Stop Solution
  14.   Add 120 µL of Stop Solution to each well. Read at 450 nm within 30 minutes. Set wavelength correction to 540 nm or 570 nm.
