R-PLEX Rat IL-6 Antibody Set

R-PLEX Rat IL-6 Antibody Set Overview
The R-PLEX Rat IL-6 Antibody Set includes a matched capture and detection antibody pair and calibrator for the quick and easy measurement of IL-6 in biological samples. R-PLEX products leverage MSD’s electrochemiluminescence technology for better sensitivity and a larger dynamic range than traditional ELISAs. R-PLEX matched antibody sets enable the development of singleplex and multiplex immunoassays. Individual assays may be developed using MSD avidin- or streptavidin-coated plates. Custom multiplex assays with any combination of R-PLEX analytes can be developed on U-PLEX MULTI-SPOT plates. To learn more about the advantages of R-PLEX products click here.

Description - Interleukin-6 (IL-6, B-cell stimulatory factor 2, BSF-2, CTL differentiation factor, CDF, hybridoma growth factor, Interferon beta-2, IFN-β2) is secreted mainly by T cells and macrophages. IL-6 is involved in inflammation, aging, cell growth, apoptosis, and bone remodeling and is released from muscle cells during exercise. IL-6 induces acute phase response and plays an essential role in differentiating B cells into IgG secreting cells.

Application Area - Autoimmune and Inflammation, Cardiovascular Disease, Neurodegenerative
