* Require reagent kit III (171-304090M or 171-304090) and standard (171-DK0001).

** Custom assays can be ordered with any combination of analytes within a group, except for ICAM-1 and VCAM-1, which require different sample dilutions. For more information about compatibility between groups see bulletin 5927.

*** IL-18 is not available as a singleplex assay, only as part of an assay panel.

† IL-17A/F is available only as a singleplex set and cannot be mixed with IL-17A or IL-17F.

‡ TGF-β assays are compatible with human, mouse, and rat samples.

* Assay range is LLOQ and ULOQ, calculated from five independent assays.

** Data were generated using vacuum manifold. %CV is expected to be comparable or lower with magnetic bead washer.

Assay Performance Definitions

Assay working range — the range of concentrations within which the assay is precise and accurate. Boundaries of the assay working range are the lower limit of quantitation (LLOQ) and the upper limit of quantitation (ULOQ).

Precision — the coefficient of variation (%CV) at concentrations within the assay working range

Accuracy — ratio of the observed concentration versus the expected concentration of a known amount of spiked analyte within the assay working range

Sensitivity (Limit of Detection, LOD) — the concentration of analyte for which the fluorescence intensity signal is two-fold of the standard deviation above the background signal

Representative assay working ranges, assay sensitivity, and precision. The LLOQ, ULOQ, LOD, and inter-assay precision %CV are mean data determined from three independent multiplex assays in serum-based matrix. Intra-assay %CV is derived from one representative assay. LLOQ and ULOQ are defined as the boundary standard curve points in which the performance specifications of individual standard points were met for 10% intra-assay CV, 15% inter-assay CV, and recovery range of 80–100%. Data were generated using the magnetic workflow with the Bio-Plex Pro II wash station.

Bio-Plex® Technology and Applications

Bio-Plex Pro™ human cytokine, chemokine, and growth factor magnetic bead–based assays detect and measure levels of 53 analytes in diverse matrices such as serum, plasma, and tissue culture supernatants. Cytokines, chemokines, and growth factors are cell signaling proteins that mediate a wide range of physiological responses, including immunity, inflammation, and hematopoiesis. They are associated with a spectrum of diseases ranging from tumor growth, to infections, to Parkinson's disease.

Based on 6.5 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 bead–based for simplified plate processing
  • Developed to deliver accurate, reproducible measurements in multiple sample matrices
  • Requires as little as 12.5 µl of sample for both multiplex and singleplex assays
  • Available as all-in-one, space-saving complete kits
  • Includes premixed standards for generation of standard curves over a broad dynamic range for each target
  • Compatible with Bio-Plex Pro human diabetes assays for an expanded biomarker profile

Flexible Ordering Options

  • Premixed panels — complete ready-to-use kits (8-plex, 17-plex, 21-plex, 27-plex, Th1/Th2, TGF-β 3-plex)
  • Singleplex sets — each set includes a vial of coupled magnetic beads and a vial of detection bodies; requires a reagent kit (#171-304070 for vacuum separation or #171-304070M for magnetic separation) and a vial of standards (#171-D50001 for group I cytokines, #171-D60001 for group II cytokines, or #171-X40001 for TGF-β assays) for a complete assay
  • Custom premixed assays — available as Bio-Plex® x-Plex™ assays built using the Bio-Plex Assay Builder
  • Custom assays (mixed at the bench) —  available as Bio-Plex Express assays built using the Bio-Plex Assay Builder

For multiplexing capabilities among cytokines, refer to bulletin 5927. For multiplexing capabilities with diabetes assays, refer to bulletin 5975.

Instrument Compatibility

  • Bio-Plex 3D system
  • Luminex MAGPIX system
  • Bio-Plex Pro wash station
