GRO/CINC-2 Beta ELISA Kit (Rat)


Rat GRO/CINC-2 beta ELISA kit is a method for analysing quantitative concentrations of GRO/CINC-2-beta (GRO/CINC-2b) in serum and cell culture supernatant. 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) was first identified in purified media that was conditioned using IL-1 beta stimulated rat kidney epithelial cells. It belongs to the CXC chemokines family and there are three different family members: CINC-2a, CINC-2b and CINC-3 (MIP-2). These display protein sequence homology between 63-67% and are the rat counterpart to human GRO. Grow Related Oncogene (GRO) is a member of the IL-8 family of polypeptides and has three isoforms (alpha, beta and gamma), these share sequence identity of 68%, 71% and 68% respectively.


The minimum sensitivity detection limit of rat GRO/CINC-2b (GRO/CINC-2-beta) using this rat GRO/CINC-2 beta 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.
