Multiplex Cytokine Assays with Luminex®

Cytokine levels can provide important insight into immunological events within a sample

At Precision, we utilize several technologies for cytokine analysis, including the Luminex platform for multiplex cytokine assays.

Luminex has advantages of high sensitivity while requiring low sample input and rapid analysis.

Build a complete understanding of the cytokines present in your sample

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 50-100 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
  • Prebuilt or custom Luminex assays
  • Integration with Precision’s other bioanalytical and specialty assays and technlogies
