Lactoferrin Human ProcartaPlex™ Simplex Kit (Invitrogen™)

The Human Lactoferrin Simplex ProcartaPlex kit measures lactoferrin protein and is designed to be combinable with other Simplex kits so that you can create your own multiplex panel that utilizes Luminex xMAP technology for protein detection/quantitation. When combining multiple Simplex kits (i.e., when you are not using a pre-configured Multiplex Panel), only one buffer kit (sold separately) is needed for each assay plate regardless of plex size.

ProcartaPlex immunoassays are based on the principles of a sandwich ELISA, using two highly specific antibodies binding to different epitopes of one protein to quantitate up to 80 protein targets simultaneously when using the FLEXMAP 3D or Luminex 200 instrument and up to 50 protein targets when using the MAGPIX instrument. ProcartaPlex assays require as little as 25 µL of plasma or serum, or 50 µL of cell culture supernatant, and just four hours to obtain analyzed results.

Flexible panels—design your own panels with Simplex kits to measure your own array of targets
More results per sample—measure up to 80 protein targets in a single 25–50 µL sample
Well-established Luminex technology—the most referenced multiplexing platform for protein detection and quantitation

The Luminex MagPlex superparamagnetic microsphere beads in the ProcartaPlex assay are internally dyed with precise proportions of red and infrared fluorophores to create 100 spectrally unique signatures that can be identified by the Luminex xMAP detec¬tion systems (Luminex 200, FLEXMAP 3D, and MAGPIX systems). Similar to a sandwich ELISA, the ProcartaPlex assay uses matched antibody pairs to identify the protein of interest. In a ProcartaPlex multiplex assay, each spectrally unique bead is labeled with antibodies specific for a single target protein, and bound proteins are identified with biotinylated antibodies and streptavidin–R-phycoerythrin (RPE). The conjugation of protein-specific antibodies to a distinct bead allows for analysis of multiple targets in a single well.

The most significant difference between a ProcartaPlex assay and ELISA is that the capture antibody in the ProcartaPlex assay is conjugated to a magnetic bead and not adsorbed to the microplate well, so the ProcartaPlex assay reagents are free-floating in the solution. For detection, the Luminex 200 instrument, for example, contains two lasers, one to distinguish the spectral signature of each bead and the second to quantify the amount of RPE fluorescence, which is proportional to the amount of protein present in the sample. ProcartaPlex multiplex assays can profile up to 80 times more target proteins using significantly less sample in the same time that it takes to perform a traditional sandwich ELISA.

ProcartaPlex Simplex kits provide the ability to create your own unique panel . More than 90% of ProcartaPlex Simplex targets can be combined, providing you with superior flexibility when creating your own multiplex panel.

ProcartaPlex Simplex kits are available across six species (human, mouse, rat, nonhuman primate, porcine, and canine). Visit thermofisher.com/procartaplex for more information, including a comprehensive list of individual protein targets.

Luminex™ xMAP™ Technology—Effective and Proven Analytical Tool
The Human Cytokine Magnetic 10-Plex Panel is based on xMAP™ technology. The use of a suspension bead-based technology enables the multiplexing capabilities of the Luminex™ assays. Magnetic microspheres are internally dyed with red and infrared fluorophores of differing intensities. Each bead is given a unique number, or bead region, allowing differentiation of one bead from another. Beads covalently bound to different antibodies can be mixed in the same assay, utilizing a 96-well microplate format. Upon completion of the sandwich immunoassay, magnetic beads must be measured using a Luminex™ detection system (MAGPIX™, 100™/200™, or FLEXMAP 3D™). The instrument uses xPONENT™ software to distinguish bead color (analyte) and R-PE fluorescence intensity (assay signal strength) to quantify target(s).

Magnetic Beads Let You Do More with Your Time
Magnetic bead-based assays use Luminex™ MagPlex magnetic microsphere. All other assay components are the same as the equivalent Luminex™ polystyrene bead-based assays providing identical quality and consistency performance. MagPlex technology takes advantage of magnetic properties to simplify assay wash steps and maximize uniformity of results. Magnetic bead-based assays also enable automation, decrease hands-on time, and increase throughput and precision. Easy to use protocols allow you to get your results in as little as 3.5 hours. In addition, these assays are compatible with both vacuum and magnetic wash stations and work well with the MAGPIX™ system as well as other Luminex™ xMAP™ platforms.A natural sample test comparing polystyrene and magnetic bead assays shows magnetic and polystyrene beads give equivalent results.

More Validation for Confidence in Your Results
The Human Cytokine Magnetic 10-Plex Panel has been validated using the same rigorous criteria that distinguishes Luminex™ assays from other commercially available assays. With more than 20 years of experience, our fully qualified antibodies help ensure the specificity and sensitivity of our assays. When benchmarked against the competition, our multiplex products consistently deliver excellent results. Every singleplex kit and premixed multiplex kit comes with a product insert that outlines the specifications for each marker in the assay (see Documents section below).

In a ProcartaPlex multiplex assay, each spectrally unique bead is labeled with antibodies specific for a single target protein, and bound proteins are identified with biotinylated antibodies and streptavidin–R-phycoerythrin (RPE). The conjugation of protein-specific antibodies to a distinct bead allows for analysis of multiple targets in a single well.

The most significant difference between a ProcartaPlex assay and ELISA is that the capture antibody in the ProcartaPlex assay is conjugated to a magnetic bead and not adsorbed to the microplate well, so the ProcartaPlex assay reagents are free-floating in the solution. For detection, the Luminex 200 instrument, for example, contains two lasers, one to distinguish the spectral signature of each bead and the second to quantify the amount of RPE fluorescence, which is proportional to the amount of protein present in the sample. ProcartaPlex multiplex assays can profile up to 80 times more target proteins using significantly less sample in the same time that it takes to perform a traditional sandwich ELISA.

ProcartaPlex Simplex kits provide the ability to create your own unique panel . More than 90% of ProcartaPlex Simplex targets can be combined, providing you with superior flexibility when creating your own multiplex panel.

Chemokine 9-Plex Human ProcartaPlex™ Panel 1 (Invitrogen™)

The Human Chemokine I 9-plex ProcartaPlex Panel is a preconfigured multiplex immunoassay kit that measures 9 protein targets using Luminex xMAP technology. ProcartaPlex preconfigured panels are supplied with all the necessary reagents to perform the assay and are validated to ensure reproducibility and consistency. These panels are designed for those who need greater validation for longitudinal studies.

ProcartaPlex immunoassays are based on the principles of a sandwich ELISA, using two highly specific antibodies binding to different epitopes of one protein to quantitate all protein targets simultaneously using a Luminex instrument. ProcartaPlex multiplex assays require as little as 25 µL of plasma or serum, or 50 µL of cell culture supernatant, and just four hours to obtain analyzed results.

Reproducible, reliable results—validated as a panel to the highest industry standard, including protein target combinability and cross-reactivity testing
More results per sample—measure multiple protein targets simultaneously in a single 25–50 µL sample
Well-established Luminex technology—the most referenced multiplexing platform for protein detection and quantitation

ProcartaPlex assays utilize Luminex xMAP (multianalyte profiling) technology for the simultaneous detection and quantitation of up to 80 protein targets in a single 25–50 µL sample—from plasma, serum, cell culture supernatants, and other bodily fluids.
