Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.  
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.    
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of mouse IL-18 in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.
  Sample Serum(n=4)  
1:1 Average % 88

  • Sample type: Lung tissues
    Sample species: Mouse
    Review: IL-1β and IL-18 level in lung tissues measured by ELISA. Each bar represents mean ± SEM (n = 6). *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 versus sham mice; #p < 0.05, ##p < 0.01 versus LPS-induced lung injury mice.
    PMID: 30126430
  • Sample type: Plasma
    Sample species: Mouse
    Review: Effect of GAL (4 mg/kg; i.p) and/or MLA (5.6 mg/kg; i.p) on plasma levels of [a] Cr, [b] Cys-C and [c] IL-18, as well as renal [d] NGAL content in ZYM-induced AKI. Data are expressed as mean of 6 mice ± SD. Statistical analysis was performed using one way analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by Tukey’s Multiple Comparison test; as compared to CONT(*), ZYM (@), and ZYM + GAL (#) groups, P < 0.05. GAL was injected 1 and 6 h post ZYM challenge, while MLA was administered 15 min before GAL. AKI: acute kidney injury; CONT: control; Cr: creatinine; Cys-C: cystatin C; GAL: galantamine; MLA: methyllycaconitine, IL-18: interleukin-18; NGAL: neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin; ZYM: zymosan.
    PMID: 30429582
  • Sample type: Cell culture supernatant
    Sample species: Mouse
    Review: ELISA was used to determine (A) the levels of IL-1β, (B) IL-18 and (C) TNFα in hippocampus. ELISA showed that the level of IL-1β, IL-18 and TNFα in hippocampus on 24h after LPS injection was significantly increased in the LPS group, but reversed in the LPS mice pretreated with Crocin, Data are presented as mean ± SEM, n = 10 mice/group, ##p < 0.01 versus the control group, *P<0.05 and **P<0.01 versus the LPS group.
    PMID: 30179677
  • Sample type: Serum or liver
    Sample species: Mouse
    Review: The levels of IL-18, iNOS, MCP-1, MIP-1β, and RANTES in serum or liver were detected by using mouse ELISA kits.
    PMID: 30032072
  • Sample type: Bronchoalveolar lavage fluid
    Sample species: Mouse
    Review: Productions of IL-6, IL-1 β, IL-18, and TNF- α in BALF. Data were presented as means ± SEM (n = 6 in each group). *P < 0.05 **P < 0.001. ***P < 0.001.
    PMID: 30373775
