|Description||Sandwich High Sensitivity ELISA kit for Quantitative Detection of Human IL-2|
|Cite This Product||Human IL-2 PicoKine™ ELISA Kit (Boster Biological Technology, Pleasanton CA, USA, Catalog # EK0397)|
*Our Boster Guarantee covers the use of this product in the above tested applications.
**For positive and negative control design, consult "Tissue specificity" under Protein Target Info.
|Immunogen||Expression system for standard: E.coli,A21-T153|
|Cross Reactivity||There is no detectable cross-reactivity with other relevant proteins.|
*Sensitivity, or Lower Limit of Detection (LLD), is the minimum level of target protein the ELISA assay can detect. We measure 20 blank wells and if the O.D. value is 2 standard deviations higher than the blanks' average O.D. the sample can be deemed positive.
*This assay range is determined using common samples. For samples with low target protein concentrations, users can adjust the standard curve to extend the lower limit of assay range.
|Sample Type||cell culture supernates, serum and plasma(heparin, EDTA, citrate).
*The above listed samples are the ones valided with the assay. If you do not see your sample of interest listed, as long as there is enough level of target protein present in the sample, this Picokine™ ELISA kit should detect it.
**For protocol and tips regarding preparing your sample of interest, please check our ELISA sample preparation guide.

Material Required But Not Provided
- 1. Microplate reader in standard size.
- 2. Automated plate washer.
- 3. Adjustable pipettes and pipette tips. Multichannel pipettes are recommended in the condition of large amount of samples in the detection.
- 4. Clean tubes and Eppendorf tubes.
- 5. 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 H2O and adjust pH to 7.2-7.6. Finally, adjust the total volume to 1L.
- Preparation of 0.01 M PBS: Add 8.5g sodium chloride, 1.4g Na2HPO4 and 0.2g NaH2PO4 to 1000ml distilled water and adjust pH to 7.2-7.6. Finally, adjust the total volume to 1L.

|Gene Full Name||Interleukin-2|
|Protein Function||Produced by T-cells in response to antigenic ormitogenic stimulation, this protein is required for T-cellproliferation and other activities crucial to regulation of theimmune response. Can stimulate B-cells, monocytes, lymphokine-activated killer cells, natural killer cells, and glioma cells.|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the IL-2 family.|

Typical Data Obtained from Human IL-2 PicoKine™ ELISA Kit
(TMB reaction incubate at 37°C for 15-20min)
*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.
- 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."
