Biomarker Detection in Cancer Research

A tumor marker, or “biomarker,” is a molecular entity whose relative quantity or localization is different between tumor-bearing and non-tumor-bearing subjects. Cancer biomarker detection is important — not only for therapeutic use, but also because they can be used to decipher the signaling pathways underlying both normal and diseased cellular processes.

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

Detection of isolated protein biomarkers is often inadequate to distinguish tumor from non-tumor. Multiplexed detection of both intracellular and circulating cancer markers can accelerate studies of normal homeostasis and tumorigenic processes, as long as your assays exhibit accuracy and lot-to-lot consistency.

Using the bead-based Luminex xMAP® platform, our MILLIPLEX® MAP cancer portfolio provides a broad offering of multiplexed cancer marker assays, compatible with serum, plasma, tissues, cultured cells, and other biological samples.

Our analytically validated kits and assays enable you to measure specific proteins in cancer research areas.

Some examples of the multiplex assay analytes in our portfolio are listed below. Download the Analyte Quarterly brochure for a complete, updated list of assays.
