Materials Required But Not Provided
- Microplate reader in standard size.
- Automated plate washer.
- Adjustable pipettes and pipette tips. Multichannel pipettes are recommended in the condition of large amount of samples in the detection.
- Clean tubes and Eppendorf tubes.
- Washing buffer (neutral PBS or TBS).
- Preparation of 0.01M TBS: Add 1.2g Tris, 8.5g NaCl; 450μl of purified acetic acid or 700μl of concentrated hydrochloric acid to 1000ml H2
- Preparation of 0.01 M PBS: Add 8.5g sodium chloride, 1.4g Na O and adjust pH to 7.2-7.
Typical Data Obtained from Human IL-2 PicoKine™ ELISA Kit
(TMB reaction incubate at 37°C for 15-25min)
Intra/Inter Assay Precision
|Intra-Assay Precision||Inter-Assay Precision|
Three samples with differing target protein concentrations were assayed using four different lots to measure the CV% lot to lot variance.
To assay reproducibility, three samples with differing target protein concentrations were assayed using four different lots.
|Lots||Lot1 (pg/ml)||Lot2 (pg/ml)||Lot3 (pg/ml)||Lot4 (pg/ml)||Mean (pg/ml)||Standard Deviation||CV (%)|
*The typical data is obtained from Boster's internal QC result and for reference only. It may differ from the lab test results of the end users. It is more important that the user's lab test results reflect the same linearity demonstrated in the typical data than achieving exactly the same O.D. values.

|Background||Interleukin-2(IL2), formerly referred to as T-cell growth factor, is a powerfully immunoregulatory lymphokine that is produced by lectin- or antigen-activated T cells. It is produced not only by mature T lymphocytes on stimulation but also constitutively by certain T-cell lymphoma cell lines. The lymphokine interleukin-2(IL-2) is responsible for autocrine cell cycle progression and regulation of immune responses. IL-2 expression in mature thymocytes and T cells has been found to be tightly controlled by monoallelic expression. IL-2 can act as a growth hormone for both B and T lymphocytes. The human gene for interleukin 2(IL2) is assigned to chromosome 4. Human IL-2 is a 15.5KDa glycoprotein, consisting of 153 amino acids in precursor form and 133 amino acids in mature form.|

- Review by Jason Somarelli
"The standards and ELISA kit worked great."
--Jason Somarelli, DUKE UNIVERSITY, MEDICINE, RESEARCH ASSOCIATE
Applications Detection of secreted IL-2 in media of Jurkat T cells Sample Jurkat T cell media (RPMI, 10% FBS, 1% pen/strep) Detection --
"I was using this kit to detect IL-2 secretion from Jurkat T-cells upon activation with PMA and PHA. I followed the protocol exactly. I had extremely low levels of IL-2 in my experiment, which were just above background. In this case, it was essential for me to use the standards and blanks to ensure that my samples were above background. All components come with the kit, unlike some other kits from other companies in which only some of the necessary components are provided. This is a great kit that is a bit expensive, but worth the cost for an easy-to-use and sensitive assay."
1. Diluent the samples with the provided sample diluent buffer into 100ul.
2. Add 50ul of standard solution, when 50ul of sample will be added into a well.
• Add tissue homogenates into the wells and then add ABC and TMB without adding any biotinylated detection antibody to see if any signal will be observed.
• If no signal is produced, then you can work on the tissue sample by using the kit.
The 1XTBS can be used if the pH value falls in the range of 7.2-7.6.
