Background of Il6r

IL6R alpha (IL6RA) also known as CD126 or IL6R, is a type I cytokine receptor. The IL6 receptor is a protein complex consisting of a IL-6 receptor subunit (IL6R) and interleukin 6 signal transducer Glycoprotein 130. IL6R also denotes the human gene encoding this subunit. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported. IL6R subunit is also shared by many other cytokines. Interleukin-6 receptor has been shown to interact with Interleukin 6 and Ciliary neurotrophic factor. Ligand binding did not appear to affect IL6R dimerization status. IL6R dimerization occurs both on the cell surface and in solution.

Question

Q: which procedure should I follow in order to thaw whole blood sample for Il6r ELISA after freezing?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-08-08

Answer

A: do not freeze and thaw whole blood. erythrocytes are fragile and, if frozen and thawed, will undergo hemolysis rendering the samples useless. To keep your blood samples to test Il6r for a later time, you should let the blood clot in glass tubes and collect the serum to freeze for later use.

Question

Q: Can Il6r ELISA Kits be used with tissue homogenates (or other non-validated sample types)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-05-16

Answer

A: Unfortunately, Boster Bio has not routinely validated tissue homogenates as a sample type for ELISA kits. This does not mean that ELISA kits are not valid for other sample types than we have tested: it means further investigation is required. One will need to perform a spike and recovery study to determine if an unvalidated sample type will work with a particular kit. To perform a spike and recovery experiment, one should divide a sample into two aliquots. In one of the aliquots, the user should spike in a known amount of the kit standard. a dilution series is performed comparing the spiked versus the unspiked sample. Generally, samples with expected recovery and linearity between 80-120% are considered acceptable. This method can be used to validate any sample type that has not been evaluated by Boster Bio. for a more detailed spike and recovery protocol, please contact technical support.
Note: acceptable ranges should be determined individually by each laboratory. Additionally, technical support can help determine if a buffer component is not compatible with a given ELISA kit. please check the Citations tab on the product webpage for peer-reviewed papers utilizing a wide range of sample types. We also have an innovator's reward program where if the user validates our ELISA kits in applications or samples previously not validated by Boster Bio or other users, and share such information with us by submit a review, we will reward the user's efforts with a free antibody or ELISA kit from our catalog. Biocompare.com will also give $20 Amazon giftcard as an additional reward, if the review is submitted there as well.

Question

The protocol said 100µl/sample is needed to run the ELISA kit. However, the volumes of our samples are small and we are just wondering if 50µl/sample instead of 100µl/sample would work with the kit or not?

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-03-11

Answer

There are two solutions for insufficient sample volume for the Human IL-6R Alpha / IL 6 Receptor ELISA Kit PicoKine™ (EK0777), 1.Diluent the samples with the provided sample diluent buffer into 100ul. 2.Add 50ul of standard solution as well, if 50ul of sample will be added into a well.

Question

Q: can you recommend the dilution ratio of serum samples for detection of Il6r in Human urine? I am trying to measure a few analytes and it requires 100ul of diluted samples for each well. We have low serum volumes so we like to dilute as much as possible.

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-05-29

Answer

A: without knowing the physiological or pathological context of your samples we cannot recommend a dilution ratio without performing a pilot test with your samples. Here is how you can perform a pilot study on your own: perform a serial dilution of your samples on the Il6r ELISA kit to make sure you have a linear ascending curve followed by a plateau, which signifies the samples saturating the detection limit of the kit. Then you can pick the dilution ratios from samples in the linear part of the curve as your experimental dilution ratio.
If you are interested in using our ELISA service, you can also send us your sample and we will take care of everything for you. You can check our service details here: bosterbio.com/services/assay-services/ELISA-testing-service
Since you mentioned you have limited samples, our cost effective multiplex ELISA service would fit perfectly for your needs, where we can generate dozens of data points using as little as 25ul sample volume. Information on this service is also in the above link.

Question

Q: for how much duration can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for quantification Il6r using the EK0777 Human Il6r Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-03-29

Answer

A: Boster Bio does not assess sample stability. Variations in sample collection, processing, and storage may alter the stabilityof samples. It is recommend to assay sample immediately after collection when possible, or aliquot into single use volumes and store samples frozen. avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles with the stored samples to limit protein degradation.

Question

Q: what is the protocol regarding preparation of cell lysates prepared for use in Picokine® ELISA kits?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2015-06-13

Answer

A: in those Picokine® ELISAs where cell or tissue lysate is a validated sample type, sample preparation instructions for lysate are included in the product insert. Components in lysate and lysis buffer may impact immunoreactivity, so if lysate is not a validated sample type, care must be taken in sample preparation and validation.
