Available for external use?

Yes

Comments

The Multiplex service is specialized in the quantification of biomarkers, especially proteins in tissues and fluids. The Multiplex xMAP technology (Bio-PlexTM/Luminex®) presents superior sensitivity (fluorescence-based technology) and allows the simultaneous identification of multiple analytes in samples with reduced volume. The Multiplex xMAP technology is currently being developed by distinct partners, enlarging the analyte portfolio every year, ranging from cytokines, disease-specific markers or signaling proteins. Kits are available for human, mouse, rat and other species.
