      DescriptionSMC™ Human IL-4 High Sensitivity Immunoassay Kit
      OverviewThe SMC™ Human IL-4 High Sensitivity Immunoassay Kit contains all reagents required to perform the assay. This assay takes advantage of a standard immunoassay workflow configured in a standard plate format. Assay protocols are similar to existing sandwich ELISA methods with two key differences: 1) Elution buffer disrupts the sandwich, separating the labeled detection antibody for quantification. 2) The Erenna® and SMCxPRO™ immunoassay systems detect analytes using Single Molecule Counting (SMC™) technology.
      Background InformationInterleukin 4 (IL-4) is a cytokine produced by activated T cells and has been shown to have effects on both hematopoietic and immunological processes. It can be B cell stimulating and Th2-promoting and is responsible for the immunoglobulin isotype switching to IgG1and IgE. Overproduction of IL-4 is associated with allergies, tumor growth and progression and increased production has even been seen in those infected with HIV.

      ApplicationThe sensitivity of the Single Molecule Counting (SMC™) technology gives the SMC™ Human IL-4 High Sensitivity Immunoassay Kit unparalleled performance in the quantification of IL-4 in human serum and plasma.
      Key Applications
      • Single Molecule Counting (SMC™)
      Application NotesThis new streamline kit has been improved with the following features while the kit performance is consistent with the legacy IL-4 kit, #03-0052-00:
      • Improved options for sample prep and incubation
      • Lyophilization of the standard provides the kit at one storage condition
      • Removal of a plate transfer step
      • Overnight incubation can be used
      • Increased reagent volumes to accommodate automation
      • Validated to run on both SMCxPRO™ and Erenna®
