Translational investigators require powerful immunoassays for the targeted detection of proteomic biomarkers with the goal of studying human health. Cytokine profiling tools are critical to understanding how acute and chronic inflammatory conditions cancer and autoimmunity. Invitrogen™ immunoassay tools from Thermo Fisher provide sensitive and specific detection of target proteins across a range of applications and platforms, including western blotting, ELISA, and Luminex™ xMAP™ multiplexed bead-based assays. For the latter, Luminex assays produce rich data sets (30+ analyte concentrations) from a small sample volume with sensitivity and specificity. This presentation will highlight key characteristics of the Invitrogen Luminex multiplexed immunoassay platform and how it can accelerate quantification of relevant protein markers.
