Reagents, Immunoassay, Immunology, Cytokine, Interferon
Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative immunologic tests on a body fluid sample (e.g., serum) to determine the presence of one or more low-molecular-weight cytokines known as interferons (originally thought to interfere with viral replication). Interferons are grouped into three classes: alpha, beta, and gamma, according to their cell source and function.
