Proteome Profiler Rat Cytokine Array Kit, Panel A Summary

Kit Summary

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

Troubleshooting Guide

Key Benefits

  • Detects 29 rat cytokines and chemokines simultaneously
  • Requires no specialized equipment
  • Compatible with LI-COR and chemiluminescence detection

Principle of the Assay

The Proteome Profiler Rat Cytokine Array Kit, Panel A 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 Multiple Cytokines?

Determining the expression of multiple cytokines 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 cytokines in a single sample can be cost-effective and also save time and sample.

Figure 2. The Rat Cytokine Array detects multiple analytes in tissue lysates and serum. A-B, A rat was injected with 0.1 mg/kg LPS. After 24 hours, tissues were excised and prepared as described in the Sample Collection and Storage section. 400 µg of lysate was run on each array.

This array kit is a very nice tool to screen potential cytokines in spent media of cell culture.

This kit is an excellent tool in screening potential cytokines and chemokines. However, it would be nice if more targets can be included for this Rat cytokine panel (since the mouse and human panel has XL format).
