Cardiovascular disease, particularly atherosclerotic vascular disease, is a leading cause of global mortality, accounting for 30% of all global deaths (WHO, 2010). Inflammatory mechanisms play a vital role in the initiation, maintenance, and progression of vascular disease with a strong correlation between inflammatory markers and prognosis in acute and chronic coronary artery disease. Numerous studies have demonstrated an association of obesity and diabetes with cardiovascular risk factors.
MILLIPLEX® Human Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Panel 3 (Acute Phase) is a 10-plex kit to be used for the simultaneous quantification of any or all of the following analytes in human serum, plasma or tissue/cell lysate and culture supernatant samples: Adipsin, α-1-Acid-Glycoprotein (AGP), α-2-Macroglobulin (A2M), C Reactive Protein (CRP), Fetuin A, Fibrinogen, L-Selectin, Serum Amyloid P (SAP), Haptoglobin, and Platelet Factor-4 (PF4). (Please note: Fibrinogen is not detectable in serum.) This kit uses a 96-well format, contains a lyophilized standard cocktail, two internal assay quality controls and can measure up to 38 samples in duplicate.
The Luminex® xMAP® platform uses a magnetic bead immunoassay format for ideal speed and sensitivity to quantitate multiple analytes simultaneously, dramatically improving productivity while conserving valuable sample volume.
Panel Type: Cardiovascular
Sensitivity: See kit protocol for individual analyte sensitivity.
