Overview of Multiplex Immunoassays
Traditionally, single-analyte, or singleplex, protein detection methods such as enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) or western blotting have been used sequentially to analyze multiple intracellular and extracellular proteins. Although these are both well-established, validated techniques, they can be time-consuming, sample-depleting, and costly when used to measure numerous markers per sample. Life Technologies offers a range of Novex® assays on the Luminex® xMAP® (multi-analyte profiling) technology platform for detection and quantitation of multiple proteins simultaneously, saving time, sample, and money.
- Efficient—simultaneously analyze multiple proteins using only 50 μL of sample
- Economical—helps save time and costs compared to western blot or ELISA
- Simple—easy operation with streamlined start-up and shutdown protocols
Novex® multiplex immunoassays enable the simultaneous analysis of multiple proteins in single samples from a broad range of biological sources. They combine the efficiencies of multiplexing with the accuracy, sensitivity, reproducibility, and simplicity of ELISA.
