Quantify Cytokine Release Without Tedious Wash Steps

The Lumit™ IL-6 Immunoassay quantitatively measures released IL-6 in cell culture samples using a simple, no-wash protocol. Just add labeled antibodies to the sample, add detection reagent and read luminescent signal using a standard plate-reading luminometer. The entire protocol is completed in less than 70 minutes! The assay can be used directly on cells in culture or culture medium transferred to a separate assay plate.

How the Lumit™ IL-6 Immunoassay Works

Primary antibodies to IL-6 were selected for their specific and sensitive detection and labeled with the LgBiT and SmBiT subunits of NanoBiT® Luciferase. In the presence of IL-6, the subunits are brought together to form an active luciferase enzyme. Addition of optimized substrate generates a bright luminescent signal proportional to IL-6 levels.

Rapid Detection of IL-6 Release from PBMCs

Comparison of IL-6 release from PBMCs using Lumit IL-6 Human Immunoassay and standard ELISA.17953ma-w

The Lumit™ IL-6 (Human) Immunoassay (left) and standard ELISA (right) were used to quantify IL-6 release from PBMCs treated with three inducers (cell stimulation cocktail, lipopolysaccharide or R848) for up to 72 hours. The results are similar, while the Lumit™ Immunoassay was completed in one fifth the time of the ELISA, with no transfer and wash steps or plate washer needed.
