Rat GRO/CINC-1 ELISA kit can be used for measuring quantitative levels of both recombinant and native forms of GRO/CINC-1 using samples of serum, plasma and cell culture supernatant. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.35 pg/ml.


GRO/CINC-1 (also known as cytokine-induced neutrophil chemo attractant 1) belongs to family of chemokines called CXC. It was first purified from media that had been conditioned by IL-1 beta stimulated rat kidney epithelial cells (i.e. NRK-52E). There are a further three rat CXC chemokines that have also been identified and these are CINC-2a, CINC-2b and CINC-3 (MIP-2). The protein sequence for all of these is approx. 63-67% identical. CINCs are regarded as the rat counterpart of human GROs (Grow Related Oncogene). GRO is a member of the IL-8 polypeptide family and has three different isoform (alpha, beta and gamma). These three forms of GRO share 68-71% identity with CINC-1.


The minimum sensitivity detection limit of rat cytokine-induced neutrophil chemo attractant 1 (GRO/CINC-1) using current rat GRO/CINC-1 ELISA kit was approximately 0.35 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 4.69 – 300.0 pg/ml.

Your secretory IgA ELISA gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.

You are my first point of contact when I am looking to purchase ELISA. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
