Bio-Rad Introduces new Pro-Human Diabetes Assay Panel
News Jun 24, 2008
Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. has announced new Bio-Plex Pro™ Human Diabetes Assay Panels for Bio-Rad’s Bio-Plex® suspension array system.
Offered as one multiplex and two singleplex assays designed to achieve optimal working assay ranges, the new pro-human diabetes assay can deliver accurate and reproducible multiplex measurements of human diabetes and obesity markers, the company claims.
• The pro-human assay panel consists of a premixed 12-plex of analytes (C-Peptide, ghrelin, GIP, and visfatin) thataGLP-1, glucagon, IL6, insulin, leptin, PAi-1, resistin, TNF- work with magnetic beads, pre-blended detection antibodies, standards and controls. The singleplex assays (adiponectin and adipsin) may be mixed together to form a 2-plex assay.
• The reagent kit includes an assay buffer, wash buffer, streptavidin-PE, 96-well filter plate, sealing tape, and panel specific instructions required to prepare assays and acquire data.
• The diluents kit can enable the researcher to choose the appropriate diluents kit for diluting samples, standards and controls.
All three Bio-Plex pro-human diabetes assays were validated using real patient samples.
