IL-15 ELISA Kit (Interleukin-15)


Human IL-15 ELISA kit is intended for measuring in vitro quantitative concentrations of interleukin-15 (IL-15) in human tissue homogenates, plasma (EDTA, heparin), biological fluids and serum. This assay has a minimum detection limit of 9.375 pg/ml.


Interleukin-15 (IL-15), at maturity is able to reach 114 amino acid residues and is a modest 14-15 kDa glycoprotein that can be produced by dendritic and monocyte cells. At present the structure has not been determined, however, it has been predicted to be similar to IL-2 and other members of this family. It is known to display approximately 97% and 73% amino acid sequence identity with simian and mouse, respectively. The biological activities are very comparable to IL-2 such as being able to induce the proliferation of activated CD4+, CD8+, CD4+CD8+, CD4-CD8- and dendritic epidermal T cells.

IL-15 affects non-lymphoid tissues such as; brain, muscle, mast cells and microglia. In combination with recombinant CD40L, it is a potent inducer of; polyclonal IgA, IgG1 and IgM secretion, but it is unable to induce the production of IgE or IgG4. It is used for therapy with the combination of classic immunosuppression therapy it could be beneficial in the prevention or treatment of acute and especially chronic, allograft rejection.


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.

Dr. C. Davies
