Bio-Rad Releases Reprint of BioRadiations Article Entitled - Second-Generation Multiplex Immunoassays
Product News Oct 01, 2008
Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. has announced that a reprint of the BioRadiations 125th issue cover article entitled “Second-Generation Multiplex Immunoassays” is now available on Bio-Rad’s website.
The article offers a look at the evolution of Bio-Rad’s multiplex assay solutions, from research and development and the licensing of technologies such as xMAP technology in the 1990s to the present day.
For many years immunoassays have provided insight into the identification and assessment of disease progression, by providing researchers information about the role proteins and other biomolecules play in biological processes. Today, applications of immunoassay array technologies are advancing research in genomics, proteomics, and clinical diagnostics.
Bio-Rad’s Bio-Plex® suspension array system, which is described in the article, is a powerful array technology platform that offers reliable multiplex detection capability. The system offers everything needed for a complete workflow, including sample preparation reagents and diluents as well as sophisticated data analysis software. The fully integrated system helps protein and nucleic acid researchers analyze up to 100 biomolecules in a single sample, and offers accurate reproducible assay results.
“The recent development of magnetic bead capability for the Bio-Plex system combines the benefits of multiplexing with the improved workflow offered by automating the wash steps,” said Jessica Dines, senior product manager, Bio-Rad.
