About Multiplex


Bead-based multiplex arrays are commonly used for the detection of various biomarkers and proteins. This technique uses microsphere beads, coated with monoclonal antibodies against specific proteins, to simultaneously measure multiple analyte concentrations in various sample types such as:

  • Body fluids (serum, saliva, plasma, GCF, wound fluid, etc)
  • Cell and tissue lysates/extracts
  • Culture supernatants
  • Target species including human, mouse, rat, non-human primate, canine, porcine, etc.
