Magnetic Luminex Assays

Novex® magnetic Luminex® assays enable reliable results and save time, allowing you to think about science instead of assays.

  • Accurate—sensitive multiplexed quantitation of proteins
  • Reproducible—lot-to-lot consistency
  • High quality—in-house manufactured antibodies help ensure excellent specificity and sensitivity
  • Short assay time—perform and analyze your data, in less than one day
  • Simple—easy-to-use protocols

Enables Consistent Results

Magnetic Luminex® Assays
Novex® magnetic Luminex® assays represent a new line of Luminex® cytokine assays. This line was carefully designed and tested to help assure that sensitivity, range, and correlation are maximized, using the same components as our polystyrene bead Luminex® assays. This means that the assays perform with identical quality and consistency (Figure 2). Standard curves generated with the magnetic Luminex® assay system extend over several orders of magnitude of concentrations, while the sensitivity and quantitation of the assays are comparable to those of ELISAs and our polystyrene bead Luminex® assays. Assay standards are calibrated to NIBSC reference preparations, when available, to enable accurate and reliable results.
