MILLIPLEX® Multiplex Assays using Luminex® for Veterinary Medicine and Animal Health Research

 

Biomarker detection multiplex immunoassays for laboratory, companion and agricultural animal research

Based on Luminex® xMAP® technology, our multiplex assays enable precise, multiparametric analysis of diseases and underlying processes. We offer assays for human protein detection, as well as assays for multiple animal species.

Our analytically verified MILLIPLEX® assay kits provide:

  • Standards verified to match reference lots
  • Serum matrix for generating standard curves that accurately simulate conditions of native analyte conditions in serum or plasma
  • In-assay kit controls
  • Detection antibody cocktails to ensure consistent performance regardless of plex size

Featured customer Q&A on research using the Bovine Cytokine/Chemokine Panel 1

  • What is your name/title/institution/department/website?
    Name: Dr. Kyle McLean, PAS
    Title: Assistant Professor in Ruminant Reproduction
    Institution: University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture
    Department: Animal Science
    Website: https://ag.tennessee.edu/AnimalScience/Pages/KyleMcLean.aspx

  • Briefly describe your current research.
    My research focuses on ruminant reproduction with particular focus on uterine environment, placental development, and fetal programming in early gestation.

  • Specifically, how do cows fit into your research?
    Cows are the focus of my research.

  • Why did you choose cows?
    It has been and will always be the focus of my research due to the economic importance and biomedical potential of cattle.

  • How does using the MILLIPLEX® Bovine Cytokine/Chemokine Panel 1 help your research and/or workflow?
    This panel has allowed me to quantify more cytokines with less sample and more quickly than anything else. It has also allowed us to develop a profile for uterine environment.

  • What other great work is being done in your laboratory?
    We are also establishing the amino acid profile of the uterine environment as well as looking into the impacts of nutrition on the composition of seminal plasma in bulls.

  • If you could solve any challenge in research, what would it be?
    Understand the mechanisms behind the establishment of pregnancy and establish the nutrient requirements of both mother and embryo during pregnancy.

  • Do you have any advice for scientists starting out in your field?
    Don’t be afraid to ask the hard questions and think outside the box.
