KC/GRO ELISA Kit (Mouse)


Mouse KC/GRO ELISA kit is intended for analysing quantitative concentrations of mouse KC or GRO (CXCL1, GRO-alpha, NAP-3 and MGSA-alpha) in plasma, serum, cell supernatant media. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 1.27 pg/ml.


KC/GRO is predominately produced as a result of fibroblasts being induced by PDGF and are found to be expressed in either endothelial cells or macrophages. These are chemokines (CXC) which are also referred to as GRO-alpha, NAP-3, CXCL1 and MGSA-alpha. GRO/KC is an intercrine alpha which displays chemotactic activity for neutrophils and is responsible for activating neutrophils during inflammation. It can produce a biological signal through binding to its CXCR2 receptor. The N-terminal processed form of KC (5-72) can display highly enhanced hematopoietic activity. There is also evidence to indicate that KC/GRO and its respective receptors are important for neutrophil chemotaxis during epidemic keratoconjuctivits.


All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

The minimum sensitivity detection limit of mouse KC and GRO (GRO-alpha, CXCL1, MGSA-alpha and NAP-3) using current mouse KC/GRO ELISA kit was approximately 1.27 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 23.44 – 1,500.0 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.
