The Bio-Plex Precision Pro™ (magnetic) human cytokine immunoassay panel contains highly sensitive, highly reproducible, magnetic bead–based assays which allow accurate measurement of low levels of human cytokines. These assays feature both low intra– and inter-assay %CVs, resulting in highly precise measurements. This panel detects the following targets:

  • IL-1β
  • IL-2
  • IL-4
  • IL-5
  • IL-6
  • IL-10
  • IL-12 (p70)
  • IL-13
  • IFN-γ
  • TNF-α

Based on 8 µm magnetic beads, these assays are compatible with both vacuum and magnetic wash stations. Magnetic washing simplifies plate processing, provides increased throughput, and results in decreased variability and increased reproducibility.

Key Features

  • Magnetic beads for simplified plate processing
  • Contains controls for generating QC Samples
  • Includes standard diluents for both serum and plasma
  • All-in-one, space-saving complete kit
  • Premixed standards for generation of curves over a broad dynamic range for each target

Instrument Compatibility

  • Bio-Plex 200 system
  • Bio-Plex Pro™ wash station
  • Bio-Plex Pro II wash station

This product is not compatible with the Bio-Plex® MAGPIX™ and Bio-Plex 3D systems due to the bead size.
