Produced by plasma cells and lymphocytes, immunoglobulins (antibodies) are critically involved in immune response, attaching to antigens, and playing a role in their destruction. Immunoglobulins (Ig) can be classified by isotype, classes that differ in function and antigen response due to structure variability. Five major isotypes have been identified in placental mammals: IgM, IgG, IgA, IgE and IgD (B-cell receptor) – all found in normal individuals. Immunoglobulin-deficiency disorders, such as autoimmune disease, some GI conditions, and malignancies, are characterized by specific isotype deficiencies or varying concentrations of one or more isotypes. Disease states can range from the absence of one isotype class or subclass to a total deficiency of immunoglobulin classes. In addition, isotyping applications include analyzing hybridomas during antibody generation and vaccine development.
The MILLIPLEX® Human Isotyping Bead Panel, measuring human IgG subclasses (1, 2, 3, 4), IgM and IgA is designed to enable you to measure both classes and subclasses accurately – all in one well. In addition, this panel allows you to choose only those immunoglobulins you need for your experiments.
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.
