Hamster IL-10 ELISA Kit (Interleukin 10)

Full Name: Hamster IL-10 ELISA Kit (Interleukin 10)
Reactivity: Hamster
Sample Type: Tissue Homogenates, Plasma, Serum, Biological Fluids
Sensitivity: 3.75 pg/ml


Interleukin 10 (IL-10) is instrumental in the infection clearance process whilst also keeping the damage to the host to a minimum. It can inhibit many effector cells and various disease processes, there is an inverse correlation between the severity of disease and the levels of IL-10 present. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is crucial for immune control and tissue healing. It is not only produced by these cells themselves, but also by dendritic cells that have processed the antigen from the external environment. Once released into the body it travels to target tissues with a concentration of 10% or greater. IL-10 gene is regulated by STAT1 and these two proteins work together to modulate its expression in response to TGF beta and PGE2 signalling pathways.

IL-10 is produced by; monocytes, B cells, T lymphocytes, keratinocytes, melanoma cells and colon carcinoma. Many publications have indicated that it is synthesised at a much later time when compared to other immune-regulatory cytokines by monocytes and activated T cells. It is regarded as the most studied anti-inflammatory cytokine, it can serve as an antagonist for many pro-inflammatory effects of many cytokines where it functions to keep the inflammation process in-check.


Hamster IL-10 ELISA kit is ideal for measuring concentrations of interleukin 10 (IL-10, IL10A, CSIF, TGIF, IL10) using hamster serum, tissue homogenate, other biological fluids and plasma samples.


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.

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

L. Johnston
PhD Student / University of Glasgow

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.

Dr. P. Anderson
Lecturer / University College London (UCL)

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.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

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.
