IL-18 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that in combination with IL-12 induces cell-mediated immunity in the presence of microbial infection, which leads to the release of IFN-gamma. IL-18 can also induce severe inflammatory reactions and it has been described to be involved in several inflammation-related diseases such as Hashimoto?s thyroiditis, Alzheimer?s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, lung injury, etc.
Analytical Measuring Range
Please note: the technical data reported below refers to the measured value in the in vitro validation assays. The calibrator curve below shows the performance of the assay with the estimated sensitivity and dynamic range parameters indicated. These curves are generated during the assay validation process using recombinant antigens. Please note that when analyzing biological samples the data generated will be given in the form of relative quantification (NPX values) and cannot be converted to absolute protein concentrations. For more info about NPX measurements, please visit our FAQ page (https://www.olink.com/question/what-is-npx).
Calibrator curve for validation data (generated in multiplex)
- Within run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
- Between run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
Precision (repeatability) is calculated from linearized NPX values over LOD.
