Bio-Plex® Technology and Applications

Analytes in the MMP Panel

  • MMP-1
  • MMP-2
  • MMP-3
  • MMP-7
  • MMP-8
  • MMP-9
  • MMP-10
  • MMP-12
  • MMP-13

Analytes in the TIMP Panel

  • TIMP-1
  • TIMP-2
  • TIMP-3
  • TIMP-4

MMPs have many different functions and actions in the body, whereas TIMPs work to inhibit the actions of MMPs. Studying MMPs and their inhibitors, TIMPs, together can reveal disruptions in the balance of these two proteins, providing insights into disease states.

These immunoassays are built on magnetic beads to enable robust quantification of multiple proteins in human samples for research involving the conditions and disease pathways listed below:

Associated Research

  • Cancer
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Infectious disease
  • Neurology

Associated Pathways

  • Inflammation
  • Wound healing
  • Metastasis
  • Apoptosis
  • Angiogenesis
  • Tumor invasion

Key Features

  • Magnetic beads for simplified plate processing
  • Custom configurable ordering options
