In a previous post we introduced Bio-Rad’s Bio-Plex Pro Diabetes and Cytokine assays and mentioned how one of the biggest advantages that the kit offers to researchers is the ability to multiplex cytokine and diabetes biomarkers in one tube. In the attached tech note: Multiplexing Compatibility of the Bio-Plex Pro Diabetes and Cytokine Assays: Human and Mouse Panels, Zimmerman et al. demonstrate the compatibility of 40 human cytokine assays with all 10 human diabetes assays and 32 mouse cytokine assays with all 8 mouse diabetes assays. The data includes an analysis of sensitivity, specificity and accuracy with limits of detection as low as 0.1pg/ml for several cytokine and diabetes biomarkers.

Do you want to extract more data from your precious (and not so precious) protein samples in super-speed? Bio-Rad has recently launched its next-generation multiplexing platform, the Bio-Plex 3D Suspension Array System. As with it’s predecessor the Bio-Plex 200, the Bio-Plex 3D is an ideal tool for anyone serious about proteomic research. The system has the capability of quantifying many, many analytes (now up to 500 analytes with the Bio-Plex 3D) from microliters of sample. With the Bio-Plex 3D System, you can maximize the amount of information you are able to extract from precious samples with an assay read time of under 20 minutes.
