GRO/CINC-2 Alpha ELISA Kit (Rat)


Rat GRO/CINC-2 alpha ELISA kit is designed for detecting quantitative amounts of GRO/CINC-2-alpha in samples of cell culture supernatant and serum. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 7.0 pg/ml.


GRO/CINC-1 (also known as cytokine-induced neutrophil chemo attractant 1) is a member of the CXC chemokines family and it was first discovered from purified media which was conditioned by IL-1b stimulated rat kidney epithelial cells. A further 3 rat CXC chemokines, namely CINC-2a, CINC-2b and CINC-3 (MIP-2) have also been discovered (all of which have 63-67% protein sequence identity). CINCs are the rat counterpart of human Grow Related Oncogene (GRO), this belongs to the family of IL-8 polypeptide. There are 3 isoforms of GRO: alpha, beta and gamma, which share 68%, 71% and 68% homology.


The minimum sensitivity detection limit of rat GRO/CINC-2a using this rat GRO/CINC-2 alpha ELISA kit was approximately 7.0 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 9.38 – 600.0 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.
