I used the kit for cell culture supernatant analysis. The dilution times need yourself to investigate ahead and then do lots of experiments. Good products.

Mouse spleen lysates and with denervated muscle tissue was a sample for use of the kit. There's very little reaction with lysates but it exists. From my experience, this kit works well for cell culture supernatants.

The kit was packaged in an organized and clear manner, and it was easy to walk through each step of the procedure. I used the mouse IL-6, VEGF, and TNF-alpha kits for plasma as well as homogenized muscle samples. Each worked well, and I would be happy to use them again.

This kit worked very well for the analysis of mouse serum samples. It was shipped quickly, easy to use, and did exactly what it was supposed to. I highly recommend this product!

BTS Research
I used this ELISA kit for Serum and cell culture supernatant analysis. Great product!
