Illustration of key elements of the ProQuantum Technology

A powerful innovation in protein quantitation

Invitrogen ProQuantum immunoassays are designed for easy-to-run, high-performance, target-specific protein detection, with no proprietary instrument to purchase. Utilizing proximity-based amplification technology, ProQuantum assays offer the analyte specificity of antibody-antigen binding with the signal detection and amplification capabilities of qPCR to achieve a highly sensitive assay. ProQuantum assays can also typically detect lower levels of protein with lower sample consumption than traditional methods.

Time to try ProQuantum High-Sensitivity Immunoassays

ProQuantum immunoassays benefits at-a-glance:

  • High-sensitivity—detect low levels of proteins with greater sensitivity than traditional methods (Figure 1)
  • Broad dynamic range—≥5 logarithmic units, minimizing sample dilutions to ensure they fall within the range
  • Small sample consumption—use 2–5 μL of sample (instead of 75 μL for triplicate wells with other methods)
  • Fast, easy workflow—typically 2 hours from sample to answer, no wash steps, and a single 1-hour incubation
  • No proprietary instrument to purchase—runs on any real-time PCR instrument
  • Includes intuitive cloud-based software—comprehensive data analysis and statistical group–wise comparison

ProQuantum immunoassays utilize a matched pair of target-specific antibodies each conjugated to a DNA oligonucleotide. This platform leverages the sensitivity and large dynamic range of Applied Biosystems TaqMan real-time PCR technology. During antibody–analyte binding, the two DNA oligos are brought into close proximity, which then allows for ligation of the two strands and subsequent creation of template strand for amplification (Figure 2).

Watch the “How to run a ProQuantum assay” instructional video for simple steps to run the assay at your lab bench.

ProQuantum Software analyzes target-specific protein quantitation results for all ProQuantum high-sensitivity immunoassay kits. The software provides end-to-end support starting with step-by-step guidance to prepare an assay run including setting up the standard curve and plate layout for 96- or 384-well plates. The analysis features include standard curve qualification, with built-in outlier detection, interpolation of unknown samples for quantitation, and group-wise statistical analysis.

  • Easily design your experimental 96 or 384-well plate run with automatic calculations for standard curve dilutions and suggested plate plans
  • Get customized reaction volumes and lab instructions based on your plate plan (Cloud only)
  • 4 or 5PL algorithm standard curve fit with built-in outlier detection
  • Easily view unknown sample concentrations from standard curve graphs or in table format
  • Statistical group-wise comparison
  • Export data to .pdf, .xls or GraphPad Prism
