Multiplex ELISA has revolutionized the analysis of cytokines and other soluble proteins. Cytokines are pleotropic proteins with overlapping function. The traditional way of analyzing single cytokines has proven to be extremely challenging. Analyzing the concurrent expression of inflammatory cytokines, chemokines and growth factors in the disease state or animal model will allow for a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms.
Multiplex ELISA analytes are available that can measure the concentration of inflammatory, angiogenic and metabolic factors. Millipore, our preferred vender for multiplex kits, provides kits to measure biomarkers or analytes related to cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, immunity and inflammation.
The Center for Therapeutic Antibody Development (CTAD) has utilized this technology to measure cytokine concentrations in serum, plasma, urine, and amniotic fluid and organ homogenates in human and mouse.
