Lyophilized Standard Mix-Human Group 1 Panel Panel B.

  • 96 & 32 Tests PN: HG10011. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant Eotaxin, IL-1β, IL-1RA, IL-8, IL-12p70, IL-22, IP-10, MCP-1, MCP-3, and RANTES.   Note: If multiple analyte kits on the above target list are ordered as a panel, only one vial of standard mix is supplied for those analyte kits. 

Application: Optimal antibody pair and antigen standard for assaying human IL-8/CXCL8.  Can be multiplexed with other analytes in Human Group 1.  To be used in conjunction with the AimPlex NR Basic Kit (96 Tests PN: P100001, 32 Tests PN: P100001T)) and a diluent kit. Refer to the AimPlex Multiplex Immunoassay User Manual and kit inserts for the assay procedure.

Storage:  2-8 C in the dark.

Important: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

Interleukin-8 (Accession P10145) is a member of the CXC chemokine family produced by a variety of blood and tissue cells. It has a specificity for neutrophils and very little effect on other blood cells. IL-8 targets neutrophils to migrate towards the site of infection and induces phagocytosis on arrival. Aberrant production of IL-8 can suggest many different chronic inflammatory conditions, as it may inhibit typical neutrophil function. IL-8 does contribute to more beneficial proinflammatory activities such as angiogenesis and immune cell activation. There are correlations to palmoplantar pustulosis and atherosclerosis.
