Mouse Serum Adipokine Panel

Adipose tissue is not only a site of energy storage, but also an active endocrine organ that secretes a number of hormones and cytokines including leptin, resistin, adiponectin, IL-6, TNFa, MCP-1, PAI-1 and others.  These adipocyte-derived proteins (adipocytokines/adipokines) play critical roles in body energy homeostasis and metabolism.  This multiplex assay kit manufactured by LINCO Research, Inc. is to be used for the simultaneous quantification of the following 7 mouse adipokines in any combination: Insulin, Leptin, Resistin, IL-6, TNFα, MCP-1, and PAI-1 (total).  This kit is for research purposes only.

All components are included in each kit (capture antibody immobilized on microspheres, detection antibody cocktail, standards cocktail, quality controls, streptavidin-PE, wash buffer, assay buffer, 96-well microtiter filter plate) in sufficient quantity to run 39 samples in a 96-well microtiter plate. 

Overnight assay; 10 µl sample volume.

16 - 50,000 pg/mL

Intra-assay (%CV) < 4.5%
