Kit Summary

A membrane-based antibody array for the parallel determination of the relative levels of selected human chemokines. Validated for analyte detection in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, tissue lysates, serum, plasma, urine and saliva.

Key Benefits

  • Detects 31 human chemokines simultaneously
  • Requires no specialized equipment


Principle of the Array

The Proteome Profiler Human Chemokine Array Kit is a membrane-based sandwich immunoassay. Samples are mixed with a cocktail of biotinylated detection antibodies (Step 1) and then incubated with the array membrane which is spotted in duplicate with capture antibodies to specific target proteins (Step 2). Captured proteins are visualized using chemiluminescent detection reagents (Step 3). The signal produced is proportional to the amount of analyte bound.

Why Use an Antibody Array to Detect Chemokines?

Determining the expression of multiple chemokines in a single sample can be expensive, time consuming and can require specialized equipment. Performing multiple immunoprecipitations and Western blots requires time, labor, and reagents. The use of a multiplex antibody array to detect multiple proteins in a single sample can be cost-effective and also save time and sample.
