As your research uncovers the significant role of more and more biomarkers in both normal and disease states, you need a reliable partner for quality assays and consistent performance. We not only offer you the largest portfolio of biomarker assays—including ELISAs, RIAs and MILLIPLEX® MAP
(multi-analyte profiling), our kits and reagents provide you with consistent, high-quality tools so that you can do your best work while saving time, labor and cost.
In addition to the assay specifications listed in the protocol, we evaluate other performance criteria during our validation process: cross-reactivity, dilution linearity, kit stability and sample behavior (e.g. detectability and stability).
Each MILLIPLEX® MAP
How to Decide Which MILLIPLEX® Assay Is Best for Your Research
In Method Comparison tests (comparing ELISA and MILLIPLEX® MAP
assays), while the absolute values are not exactly the same, the results do correlate. Hence when switching from one assay method to another, a correction factor may be used when comparing with past data. In most situations the dynamic range and the sensitivity of the assay may be better with the MILLIPLEX® kits.
Please contact Technical Support for more information of correlation factors.

Introducing kits for your FLEXMAP 3D® instrument: get more with 384
Now you can perform your human cytokine assays faster and more economically with the new MILLIPLEX® MAP Human High Sensitivity T-Cell 21-plex assay for 384-well plates.
Benefits of 384-well kits:
- Analytically validated to meet the same QC criteria as our 96-well kits.
- You get everything you need — all in one kit — including the confidence in your data that you’ve come to expect from MILLIPLEX® assays.
- One standard curve set for each plate
- Obtain up to 366 sample data points per plate (183 samples run in duplicate) in the same amount of time it would take you to run a 96-well plate
Convert existing kits to 384-well format
Our Custom Assay Development Services can make any existing MILLIPLEX® kit into a 384-well kit within a few weeks, including all species and kits. Just let us know what you need and when you need it, and we will develop a kit that is right for your laboratory.

Phospho/Total AKT 2-Plexes
The three Akt isoforms (Akt1, Akt2, and Akt3) may have unique, isoform-specific roles in differentiation, proliferation, and other processes. To measure relative levels of phospho- and total Akt1, Akt2, and Akt3, we developed MILLIPLEX® MAP Phospho/Total 2-plex assays for each of the Akt isoforms. Each 2-plex assay enables the measurement of both phosphorylated and total protein in the same well. In addition, each Phospho/Total 2-plex assay can be combined with any other (non-Akt) Phospho/Total 2 plex.
Data obtained using the Phospho/Total Akt Isoform 2-plex Assays are shown below for SH-SY5Y cells. To view MCF7 cell data, read the latest Analyte Quarterly brochure.
Data obtained using MILLIPLEX® MAP Cell Signaling Phospho/Total Akt isoform 2-plex assays with lysates of stimulated SH-SY5Y cells. MILLIPLEX® MAP Cell Signaling Phospho/Total Akt isoform 2-plex assays were pooled and used to evaluate the cellular response to retinoic acid (RA), which induces neuronal differentiation of SH-SY5Y cells. After 3 days, cells cultured in the presence or absence of RA were collected and lysed according to assay protocols. MFI measurements were obtained, and the ratios of phosphoprotein to total protein were calculated for each, Phospho/Total Akt1, Akt2 and Akt3 2 plexes.
Human Diabetes Premixed Panel
Use this new premixed panel to simultaneously quantify five analytes important in studies of diabetes and obesity: Insulin, Glucagon, Leptin, Glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1), and C-Peptide. This panel is a subset of our popular Human Metabolic Hormone Panel (HMHEMAG-34K) and exhibits high sensitivity, consistency, and reproducibility. Learn More about Human Diabetes Premixed Panel

Human Liver Injury Panel
This panel is a five-plex assay kit to be used for the simultaneous detection of hepatotoxicity biomarkers, liver-type arginase 1 (ARG1), α-glutathione-S-transferase (GST-α), 5’nucleotidase (5’NT), sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH), and malate dehydrogenase 1 (MDH1), in serum or plasma samples. These biomarkers are hepatocellular and hepatobiliary enzymes that are released into circulation upon occurrence of liver injury. The sensitivity of this multiplex assay panel is illustrated in the table below.Learn More about Human Liver Injury Panel

Human RTK Phosphoprotein Panel
RTKs (Receptor Tyrosine Kinases) are transmembrane proteins that act as receptors for growth factors, neurotrophic factors and other extracellular signaling molecules. RTKs play important, interconnected roles in multiple biological pathways. Unlike traditional cell signaling assays, which are limited to measuring individual RTKs at a time, multiplex immunodetection enables you to screen multiple RTK-mediated signaling pathways at once, so you can quickly determine on which pathway to focus your study.
