The Bio-Plex Pro Human Cytokine Screening Panel can identify and quantify 48 different analytes linked to heart disease, autoimmunity, allergy, cancer, and many other conditions. The panel enables highly sensitive detection of the most often researched and biologically relevant cytokines in a single well, conserving time and resources. It consists of adaptive immunity cytokines, pro-inflammatory cytokines, and anti-inflammatory cytokines all in a single well. The assay provides highly sensitive detection—well below sub-picogram per milliliter range—without adding amplification steps to the workflow. The antigens and antibodies are also carefully developed in-house and tested to maximize specificity and minimize signal interference from irrelevant molecules, to enable precise and accurate quantification of multiple analytes simultaneously.
