Measure biomarkers of inflammation and immune response with MILLIPLEX® MAP multiplex assays, including our leading cytokine assay kits.
Acting at the recognition, activation or effector phases of an immune response, cytokines modulate the development and functional activities of T cells, B cells and myeloid cells. Quantifying cytokines is important for understanding pathological states such as inflammation, sepsis, and diseases such as autoimmune disease, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, neurological disorders and cancer.

Bring Your Immunology Biomarkers to Life with MILLIPLEX® MAP Multiplex Assays

Bead-based multiplex immunology assays enable precise, multiparametric analysis of diseases and underlying processes. Our MILLIPLEX® MAP multiplex cytokine assays, as well as other immunology kits, enable you to quantify nearly 400 analytes across several species simultaneously.

Based on Luminex xMAP® technology, our analytically validated assay kits provide:
  • Standards validated to match reference lots
  • Serum matrix for generating standard curves that accurately simulate conditions of native analyte conditions in serum or plasma
  • In-assay controls
  • Detection antibody cocktails to ensure consistent performance regardless of plex size
Some examples of the multiplex assay analytes in our portfolio are listed below.
