Applications of IL-6 antibody

This product has been reported to work in the following applications. This information is derived from testing within our laboratories, peer-reviewed publications or personal communications from the originators. Please refer to references indicated for further information. For general protocol recommendations, please visit the antibody protocols page.
Application Name Verified Min Dilution Max Dilution
ELISA 5ug/ml (as a coating antibody)
Flow Cytometry 1
Western Blotting
  1. 1 Membrane permeabilization is required for this application. Bio-Rad recommend the use of Leucoperm (Product Code BUF09) for this purpose.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
Flow Cytometry
Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 1x106 cells in 100ul.
ELISA
MCA1659 may also be used in combination with AHP424 in a sandwich ELISA assays for ovine IL-6.
