Bio-Rad Bio-Plex Pro Human Apolipoprotein Panel

Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched the Bio-Plex Pro Human Apolipoprotein Panel. The 10-plex panel is an expansion of the company's multiplex immunoassay offerings that allows researchers to rapidly detect and quantify key human apolipoproteins associated with cardiovascular disease. The panel includes the largest number of apolipoproteins on the market and includes four targets — Apo C1, Apo D, Apo J, and Apo H — not found on other multiplex panels. It includes high sample detectability, premixed and ready-to-use reagents, and streamlined data analysis, the company said. The panel is for research use only and is compatible with Bio-Plex 200, Bio-Plex 3D, Bio-Plex MAGPIX, and all Luminex platforms.
