Epistem’s multiplex service is a powerful tool for researchers who need to measure multiple proteins in a single sample. This service utilises the Luminex Bio-Plex® 200 System, which allows for higher sensitivity and throughput than traditional ELISA assays. By using a microbead array to quantify proteins in blood products, lysed tissue and cell culture supernatants, researchers can obtain multi-parameter readouts using very small sample volumes.
The multiplex service is particularly useful for measuring cytokines, which are signalling proteins that play a critical role in immune responses. Researchers can choose from standard screening panels or custom-built panels to target specific cytokines of interest.
Epistem’s multiplex service is highly flexible and can be tailored to your research needs, whether you require a standalone analysis service or a comprehensive integrated preclinical package.
