Cytokine levels can provide important insight into immunological events occurring within a sample. At Precision, we utilize several technologies for cytokine analysis, including the Luminex platform for multiplex cytokine assays. Our standard assays are designed to measure cytokines and chemokines released from chosen target cells, and we specialize in activated T-cell based assays requiring same day treatment and processing. All of our assays can be customized to detect specific groups of cytokines.

Advantages of Luminex assays
The Luminex platform uses fluorescently-labeled beads bound to capture antibodies to quantitatively detect a specific cytokine or other analyte of interest.
- Multiplex up to 50 analytes
- Wide dynamic range
- High sensitivity
- Low sample input
- Limited matrix interference
- Rapid analysis (a single 96-well-plate run can be completed in just 60 minutes)
- Commercially available panels and custom panels
- An ideal choice for research and exploratory purposes
Our Luminex capabilities
- Assay development or transfer, validation, and implementation
- Pre-built or custom Luminex assays
- Integration with Precision’s other bioanalytical and specialty assays and technlogies
Integrating biomarker and clinical trial data
To help researchers understand and interpret biomarker assay data in the context of other assays as well as the clinical trial data, Precision manages all assay data using our proprietary QuartzBio Translational Informatics platform.
Global Reach, Multi-site Support
We provide multiplex cytokine assay services that support pre-clinical research, including multi-site studies, conducted anywhere in the world.
Working with Precision
Precision’s specialty lab scientists take a collaborative and consultative approach to projects and can provide recommendations on biomarker assay strategies and implementation. Services can be provided individually or as part of a comprehensive therapeutic development package including biomarker assays and clinical trials.
ELISA is generally recognized as a gold standard for quantitative, antibody-based analysis. Precision’s ELISA services include assay development or transfer, validation, and implementation.
MesoScale Discovery (MSD) Assays
Measure a range of analytes in complex samples matrices consistently and at high sensitivity with our MSD assay capabilities. Applications include ADA, NAb, and TAb assays, PK assays, and more.
Quanterix SIMOA provides precise quantification of analytes in multiple matrices at ultra-high sensitivity. This platform can measure targets present at femtomolar (fM) levels, enabling analysis of analytes that may have been previously undetectable.
