Human IL-6 (also known as B-cell stimulatory factor 2, Interferon beta-2, Hy¬bridoma growth factor, and CTL differentiation factor) plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig-secreting cells. It induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth, nerve cells differentiation, and acute phase reac¬tants in hepatocytes. IL-6 is expressed by T cells, B cells, monocytes, fibroblasts, hepatocytes, endothelial cells, and keratinocytes. It has been shown that IL-6 plays a critical role in many physiological and pathological conditions, including autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.

The BioLegend RAPID MAX™ Human IL-6 ELISA Kit is a one step, one wash, 80 minute Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Sandwich Assay (ELISA) with a pre-coated, 96-well strip plate that binds the biotinylated capture antibody. Standards and samples are added into the wells, followed by an antibody cocktail. The antibody cocktail consists of an biotinylated rat monoclonal capture antibody and an HRP-conjugated rat monoclonal detection antibody. This kit is specifically designed for the accurate quantitation of human IL-6 from cell culture supernatant, serum, plasma, and other biological fluids. This kit is analytically validated with ready-to-use reagents.
