Multiplex / Cytokine

Multiplex cytokine assays can play a crucial role in first-in-human clinical trials. They can assist researchers in understanding the impact of drug therapies and support the critical decision -making process in new drug development.

Hemostasis Reference Laboratory [HRL] is a specialized laboratory with a long history of assisting clients with study design and assay selection to help ensure the best possible outcomes.

Multiplex Cytokine Assays

The simultaneous measurement of cytokines in a single sample provides increased throughput and reduced sample volume compared to traditional ELISA techniques. It is the ideal platform for measuring cytokines in a variety of matrices from human serum to tissue culture media.

HRL’s Meso Scale Discovery (MSD) multiplex platform:

The multiplex platform couples immunoassay methodology with electrochemiluminescence (ECL) detection to provide accurate and precise measurement of a multitude of different cytokine panels.
