Know Everything About Multiplex ELISA Cytokine

Multiplex Cytokine Assay Kits enable researchers to simultaneously measure multiple cytokines from a single sample. This is especially useful when trying to identify the many possible causes of a variety of pathological conditions. R&D Systems has two options for multi-analyte cytokine identification, membrane-based Proteome Profiler (TM) Cytokine Antibody Arrays or bead-based Luminex (r) Assays. 

Many companies offer a range of antibody arrays for human, mouse, and rat XL Cytokine Arrays. These arrays can detect 105, 112, or 79 analytes, as well as interleukins and members of the tumor necrosis factors superfamily.

Multiplexing with Luminex Assays allows you to simultaneously evaluate 50 or 100 analytes by using either magnetic or polystyrene microparticles. There are more than 450 available analytes. The High Performance Luminex Assays offer multiplexing that is comparable to single analyte ELISAs. 

These assays provide pre-configured panels of analytes that have been optimized and tested together to ensure the panel's maximum performance and accuracy. It also includes validation testing similar to that performed on the Quantikine(r), ELISA Kits. High Performance Luminex Assays are available for cytokines and angiogenesis, as well as cardiac biomarkers.

The ELISA method is a reliable and well-known way to quantify a cytokine in liquid samples. Multiplexing allows for multiple analytes to be measured in the same sample. Several multiplexing platforms exist, including bead-based (Luminex and flow cytometry cytokine bead array, CBA) and electrochemiluminescence (carbon surface, MSD) systems.

 

What Is Anti-CD34 Antibody?

The first anti-human CD34 antibody was used to enrich human progenitor cells by using bone Marrow cells. 87 CD34-cells have been shown to have SCID-repopulating cells. A recent study has also revealed that CD34-CD38 CD93 high cells can self-renew and can be placed above CD34+ cells in hematopoietic hierarchy.

CD 34 antigen can be found in bone marrow-derived EPCs (epithelial progenitor cells) in humans. Non-specific adsorption is minimal in vascular grafts that have been immobilized with anti CD34 antigen. This increases the formation of mature endothelium, and reduces restenosis. 

Hydrophobins can be made by filamentous fungi. They can self-assemble to transform a surface from hydrophilic and hydrophobic, and vice versa. The anti-CD31 antibody was immobilized to vascular transplants using HFBI (class 2 hydrophobins), which binds platelet endothelial cells adhesion molecule-1(PECAM1/CD31), an EC-specific marker.

The human CD34 antibody, which is a 105-120 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein, reacts to the 581 antibody. It can be found on most human hematopoietic and progenitor cell surfaces (HSPCs), mesenchymal stem cells and embryonic fibroblasts as well as some tumor cell lines. CD34 is only expressed briefly during hematopoiesis.

Therefore, CD34 cells are very rare in bone marrow and cord blood (1 to 5%), and very low in peripheral blood. CD34 is a marker that can be used to identify and isolate HSPCs that are capable of cell engraftment. CD34 is believed to mediate the attachment of stem cells to bone marrow extracellular matter or directly to stromal cells during early hematopoiesis.
