Produced in BALB/c mice using highly pure (>98%) recombinant human IL-6 as the immunizing antigen. This IgG1K antibody was purified from cell culture by Protein A affinity chromatography.
E.coli derived Recombinant Human IL-6 (PeproTech catalog# 200-06)
In a sandwich ELISA (assuming 100µl/well), a concentration of 1.0-2.0 µg/ml of this antibody will detect at least 800 pg/ml of recombinant human IL-6 when used with PeproTech's biotinylated antigen affinity purified anti-human IL-6 (500-P26Bt) as the detection antibody at a concentration of approximately 0.1-0.2 µg/ml.
To detect hIL-6 by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.5-1.0 µg/ml. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for recombinant hIL-6 is 3.5-4.0 ng/lane, under reducing conditions and 1.5-2.0 ng/lane, under non-reducing conditions.
