General description

MILLIPLEX® Human Amyloid Beta and Tau Panel enables you to focus on the relevance and therapeutic potential of Aβ40, Aβ42, Total Tau proteins (tTau), and Phosphorylated Tau Thr181 (pTau181) in your research model. Coupled with the Luminex® xMAP® platform in a bead format, you receive the advantage of ideal speed and sensitivity, allowing quantitative multiplex detection of multiple analytes simultaneously, which can dramatically improve productivity.

The MILLIPLEX® Human Amyloid Beta Tau Bead Panel is to be used for the simultaneous quantification of Aβ40, Aβ42, tTau, and pTau181. This kit may be used only for the analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). This is a configurable assay, and some or all analytes can be selected: tau (total), amyloid β40, amyloid β42 and tau (pThr181).

MILLIPLEX® portfolio offers the broadest selection of analytes across a wide range of disease states and species. Once the analytes of interest have been identified, you can rely on the quality that we build into each kit to produce results you can trust. In addition to the assay characteristics listed in the protocol, other performance criteria evaluated during the validation process include: cross-reactivity, dilution linearity, kit stability and sample behavior (e.g. detectability and stability). Each panel and kit meets stringent manufacturing criteria to ensure batch-to-batch reproducibility.

Each MILLIPLEX® panel and kit includes:
• Quality controls (QCs) provided to qualify assay performance
• Comparison of standard (calibrator) and QC lots to a reference lot to ensure lot-to-lot consistency
• Optimized serum matrix to mimic native analyte environment
• Detection antibody cocktails designed to yield consistent analyte profiles within panel

MILLIPLEX® Human Amyloid Beta Tau Bead Panel is part of the most versatile system available for cytokine research. From our single to multiplex biomarker solutions, we partner with you to design, develop, analytically validate, and build the most comprehensive library available for protein detection and quantitation.
