Human CD163 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human CD163 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human CD163 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin).
CD163(Cluster of Differentiation 163) is a human protein encoded by the CD163 gene. It has also been shown to mark cells of monocyte/macrophage lineage.
