ProcartaPlex Multiplex Assays for Luminex Systems

Profile more biomarkers with less sample

Invitrogen ProcartaPlex immunoassays are antibody-based, magnetic bead reagent kits and panels for multiplex protein quantitation using the Luminex instrument platform. The assays cover more than 200 cytokine, chemokine, growth factor, and other protein targets from human, mouse, rat, non-human primate, canine and other species. Select from 50+ pre-configured multiplex panels (2- to 65-plex), or blend singleplex kits (90% are combinable) to create custom multiplex assays.

Description of ProcartaPlex immunoassays

Invitrogen ProcartaPlex multiplex immunoassays make use of Luminex xMAP (multianalyte profiling) technology to enable the simultaneous detection and quantitation of up to 80 protein targets in a single 25–50 µL sample of plasma, serum, cell culture supernatants, and other bodily fluids. Luminex technology uses differentially dyed capture beads for each target in a multiplex “ELISA-like” assay. ProcartaPlex immunoassays can profile up to 80 times more analytes using significantly less sample in the same time that it takes to perform a traditional sandwich ELISA.

Key features of ProcartaPlex immunoassays

  • Magnetic bead format for increased ease-of-use and throughput
  • More than 90% of ProcartaPlex assays can be combined with one another
  • High correlation to our ELISA assays (R2 >0.9)
  • Scalable and reproducible performance regardless of plex size
  • Largest published panel for quantitation of up to 65 analytes
