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.
The ideal drug is one that only affects the exact cells and neurons it is designed to treat, without unwanted side effects. This concept is especially important when treating the delicate and complex human brain. Now, scientists have revealed a mechanism that could lead to this kind of long-sought specificity for treatments of strokes and seizures.READ MORE
