  • Interleukin-18 (IL-18), also known as interferon-gamma inducing factor, is a proinflammatory cytokine of the IL-1 family that is primarily secreted by macrophages. IL-18’s biological activity resembles that of IL-12, with the ability to enhance NK cell activity and induce IFNγ secretion by PMBC. A key role of IL-18 is its ability to eliminate VEGF from the eye to protect the retina. In combination with anti-VEGF antibodies, IL-18 is utilized to treat age-related macular degeneration (AMD). IL-18 dysregulation is also linked to severe inflammatory reactions.

    • Our 100 assay point kit allows you to run 100 wells in 96-well format, using a 100 µL reaction volume (10 µL of sample).
    • Our 500 assay point kit allows you to run 500 wells in 96-well or 384-well format, using a 50 µL reaction volume (5 µL of sample).
    • Our 5,000 assay point kit allows you to run 5,000 wells in 96-well or 384-well format, using a 50 µL reaction volume (5 µL of sample).
    • No-wash steps, no separation steps

    AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA assay, a biotinylated anti-analyte antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated Donor beads while another anti-analyte antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads causes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
