About Interleukin-6 (IL-6)

IL-6 is a pleiotropic cytokine that plays a crucial role in regulating the acute phase response, inflammation, hematopoiesis, glucose metabolism, bone metabolism, and cancer progression. IL-6 is an early marker of acute inflammation. In patients with COVID-19, IL-6 levels are significantly elevated and associated with adverse clinical outcomes. Therefore, serum IL-6 is an important biomarker for severity of COVID-19 and has great potential for guiding treatment of the disease.

IL-6 can reliably be measured by ELISA (cat.no. BI-IL6) in human serum, plasma and urine samples with Biomedica’s fully validated assay kit. The kit is highly sensitive and offers a wide dynamic range. The kit incorporates ready to use standards and controls.

Features & Benefits of the Human IL-6 High Sensitive ELISA Assay Kit

√ EASY ready to use calibrators & controls included

Polystreptavidin R Product Announcement

Eagle Biosciences announces new Polystreptavidin R (Polystrept R) Extraordinary high Biotin binding capacity! This reagent is for surface coating of plastics, membranes, beads and etc. with maximum biotin binding capacity. It improves the signal-noise-relation and saves material costs.

About Streptavidin

Streptavidin is a tetrameric protein (4 x 13 kDa), which binds very tightly to the small molecule Biotin. The binding constant for this interaction is extremely high (Ka ~ 1013 M-1) and turns the Streptavidin/Biotin system into a basis of many biochemical applications. Streptavidin-coated surfaces are characterized by very low nonspecific bindings. Streptavidin coating of solid phases offers a universal immobilization principle for the detection and analysis of proteins, peptides, PCR-fragments etc.

About Polystreptavidin R

Polystreptavidin R is characterized by a immensely high biotin binding capacity in combination with robustness against thermal and chemical influences. Polystreptavidin R is easy to use and suitable for coatings on membranes, beads, microplates, biochips and other plastic materials.

Polystreptavidin R at the strip test (lateral flow assay)

Polystreptavidin R shows outstanding properties when coated on nitrocellulose membranes. The very high biotin binding capacity and the very low washout effects provide a significant signal enhancement at the test line. Highly efficient immobilization of biotinylated molecules and low non-specific binding provide a high signal-to-noise ratio. Polystreptavidin R is a liquid concentrate and can be easily diluted with a neutral buffer for coating or spotting and dried at room temperature without any further production steps. If required, stabilizers can also be added. At temperatures of 2°C to 50°C Polystreptavidin R is stable for at least 24 months and supports a long shelf life.

Why use streptavidin-coated microplates and Polystrept R with lateral flow test strips?

  • Convenient method for a uniform and stable immobilization of biotinylated molecules
  • Immobilization of Biomolecules on solid phases in a directed manner, while avoiding or minimizing denaturation
  • Ready-to-use, no washing or blocking steps required
  • High signal-to-noise ratio
  • Low nonspecific binding
  • Long shelf life
  • Lower reagent consumption and especially enormous cost savings with lateral flow test stripes

We, at Eagle Biosciences, Inc. are rapidly expanding our selection of Coronavirus Assays by welcoming two new research kits! With the ongoing pandemic, it’s more important now than ever that we continue to offer the highest quality assays to our customers. Here are our newest additions;


Anti-SARS-CoV-2 S1 (RBD) IgG ELISA Assay
Catalog Number: E111

The Anti-SARS-CoV-2 S1 (RBD) IgG ELISA Assay Kit is manufactured in Germany by Mediagnost. This assay is a highly specific enzyme immunoassay for the detection of IgG antibodies directed against SARS-CoV-2-S1 Receptor Binding Domain (RBD) in human blood. In this assay the recombinant Receptor Binding Domain (RBD) of SARS-CoV-2 S1 spike protein, which binds the ACE2 receptor, is used. The use of RBD increases the specificity of the assay since the domain is identical with SARS-CoV but not with MERS-CoV for example. Antibodies directed against the RBD neutralize both virus strains SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2.

Size: 1×96 wells
Incubation Time: 2 hours 40 minutes
Sample Type: Serum and Plasma
Sample Size: 100 µl
Controls Included

Anti-SARS-CoV-2 (S1, S2, N) IgG ELISA Assay Kit
Catalog Number: 3940

The Anti-SARS-CoV-2 (S1, S2, N) IgG ELISA Assay Kit is manufactured in Germany by Generic Assays. This assay is a module based Enzyme Immunoassay for the confirmation of positive IgG antibodies against SARS coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in the first screening. The Anti-SARS-CoV-2 (S1, S2, N) IgG ELISA Assay Kit determines the specificity of antibodies against the main immunodominant antigens (Spike Glycoprotein 1, Spike Glycoprotein 2, Nucleocapsid) of SARS-CoV-2 in human serum or plasma. This test kit consists of modules separately coated with the major antigens of the virus as seen in the illistration below:

Size: 96 wells (24 samples x 4)
Incubation Time: 2 hours
Sample Type: Serum or Plasma
Number Of Tests Per Kit: 24 (22 samples + controls)
Sample Size: 50 µl

Through our collaboration with ImmunAware, we are excited to offer a new range of products: easYmer MHC Tetramers. This product allows laboratories to easily generate monomers using their choice of peptide. The resulting monomers can also be easily tetramerized using fluorophore conjugated streptavidin. These tetramers can then be used to stain cognate T cells for flow cytometry. easYmers allow end users to rapidly produce large quantities of pMHC monomers with a single epitope, to produce and screen pMHC monomers with many different peptide epitope candiates in parallel, and to validate peptide HLA bonding.
