R&D Systems Rat Cytokine Array (Catalog # ARY008) is a rapid, sensitive, and economical tool to simultaneously detect the relative expression of 29 cytokine and chemokines in a single sample. No specialized equipment is necessary.
|Simultaneously detect the levels of these cytokines in a single sample.|
Carefully selected capture antibodies have been spotted in duplicate on nitrocellulose membranes. Cell culture supernatant, cell lysate, tissue lysate, serum, or plasma samples are diluted and mixed with a cocktail of biotinylated detection antibodies. The sample/antibody mixture is then incubated with the array. Any cytokine/detection antibody complex present is bound by its cognate immobilized capture antibody on the membrane. Streptavidin-Horseradish Peroxidase and chemiluminescent detection reagents are added, and a signal is produced in proportion to the amount of cytokine bound. Chemiluminescence is detected in the same manner as a Western blot.
