Bio-Rad Bio-Plex Pro Human Cytokine Screening Panel

Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched the Bio-Plex Pro Human Cytokine Screening Panel, a multiplex assay that can identify and quantify 48 different analytes linked to heart disease, autoimmunity and allergy, cancer, and other conditions.

The panel detects targets related to adaptive immunity cytokines, pro-inflammatory cytokines, and anti-inflammatory cytokines, all in a single well. It is available in a 96-well kit format that includes premixed magnetic capture beads and detection antibodies, multiplexed standards and controls, secondary antibodies for fluorescence detection, and buffers. The panel is compatible with the Bio-Plex MAGPIX Multiplex Reader, Bio-Plex 200 and Bio-Plex 3D Multiplex Immunoassay Systems, LX200 Instrument, and Flexmap 3D System, and data can be managed and analyzed using Bio-Plex Manager and Bio-Plex Data Pro Software.
