“Cytokine” is a general term used for a diverse group of soluble proteins and peptides which act as regulators under both normal and pathological conditions to modulate the functional activities of individual cells and tissues. These proteins also mediate direct interactions between cells and regulate processes taking place in the extracellular environment. The cytokine group of proteins includes lymphokines, interferons, colony stimulating factors and chemokines. Cytokine and chemokine research plays a significant role in achieving a deeper understanding of the immune system and its multi-faceted response to most antigens, as well as disease states such as inflammatory disease, allergic reactions, irritable bowel disease (IBD), sepsis, and cancer.
The MILLIPLEX® Human Cytokine / Chemokine Panel III enables you to focus on the therapeutic potential of cytokines as well as the modulation of cytokine expression.
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: Cytokines/Chemokines
Cross-reactivity between the antibodies and any of the other analytes in this panel is non-detectable or negligible.
- Analytes: GCP2, HCC-1, I-TAC, IL-11, IL-29, Lymphotactin, M-CSF, MIG, MIP-3α, MIP-3β, NAP2
- Recommended Sample type: Serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants
- Recommended Sample dilution: Neat plasma or serum. A 1:100 dilution is required for NAP-2 and HCC-1 for serum and plasma samples
- Assay Run Time: Overnight or two-hour primary incubation. For best results, an overnight incubation is recommended

Features and Benefits
Design your multiplex kit by choosing available analytes within this panel.
Everything you need in a single kit.
Storage and Stability
Recommended storage for kit components is 2 - 8°C.
Please note: Sample Type must be selected when configuring this kit. HCC-1/CCL14a and NAP-2/CXCL7 cannot be plexed with other analytes for serum/plasma.
Sensitivity: Refer to kit protocol for sensitivities of individual cytokines/chemokines.
