Quantikine Immunoassay Control Set 788 for Human MIA Summary

INTENDED USE & DESCRIPTION

For use as quantitative controls for the determination of cytokine concentrations in biological fluids. Concentrations have been assigned using R&D Systems’ Quantikine® kits. Controls are prepared in diluted porcine serum with preservatives. They contain recombinant human cytokines at low, medium and high concentrations. Controls are supplied lyophilized.

STORAGE & STABILITY

Unreconstituted Controls should be stored at 2-8 °C and are stable for at least 6 months from date of receipt. Depending on the analyte of interest, reconstituted controls may be stable when stored at < -20 °C. Users should evaluate the frozen stability of the controls in their application or discard after use.

REAGENT PREPARATION

Reconstitute each vial with the volume of deionized or distilled water indicated on the product datasheet.

PROCEDURE & EXPECTED VALUES

Controls should be assayed in the same manner as unknown specimens.

The acceptable ranges for the analytes in these controls are printed on the product datasheet. Due to possible variations in techniques and methodologies, it is recommended that each laboratory determine its own target range. Laboratories using other test systems should establish their own acceptable ranges as these assays may produce different values.

TECHNICAL HINTS & LIMITATIONS OF THE PROCEDURE 

• The ranges were determined using R&D Systems’ Quantikine kits. If expected values are not obtained, verify that the lot numbers on the vials correspond with the lot numbers listed above and the correct volume of deionized or distilled water was used for reconstitution of the controls. 

• The results obtained with these controls depend upon several factors associated with methods and instrumentation. Test systems other than those supplied by R&D Systems may result in values that differ from those printed on this product datasheet.

MIA, also known as cartilage-derived retinoic acid-sensitive protein (CD-RAP), is a secreted protein expressed in cartilaginous tissue during development and in the adult. MIA was identified based on the fact that it is highly expressed in malignant melanomas, but not in normal melanocytes. MIA has been shown to interact with fibronectin, and promotes invasion and metastasis of melanoma cells, perhaps by blocking integrin-fibronectin interactions.
