Luminex High Performance Assays Correlated to Gold Standard Quantikine ELISAs

Figure comparing Luminex assays to Quantikine ELISA kits in Cell Culture Supernate From Adipocytes

Cell culture supernate from adipocytes were analyzed using both Luminex High Performance Assays and Quantikine ELISAs
Cell culture supernate from pre-adipocytes before and after differentiation were harvested at the time points indicated and frozen.  Following collection, samples were analyzed using Human Leptin and Human Total MMP-3 Quantikine ELISAs (blue bars; Catalog # DLP00 and DMP300, respectively) and Luminex High Performance Human Cytokine Panel B and Human MMP Panel (orange bars; Catalog # LBHS000 and LMPM000, respectively).

Cell Culture Supernate From Sw1353 Figs

Cell culture supernate from SW1353 human chondrosarcoma cells were analyzed using both Luminex High Performance Assays and Quantikine ELISAs.

Cell culture supernate from SW1353 cells were either unstimulated or stimulated with 5 ng/mL IL-1 alpha and 10 ng/mL OSM, harvested 24 hours later, and frozen.  Following collection, samples were analyzed using Human CXCL10/IP-10, Human Total MMP-3, and Human Pro-MMP-13 Quantikine ELISAs (blue bars; Catalog # DIP100DMP300, and DM1300, respectively) and Luminex High Performance Human Cytokine Panel B and Human MMP Panel (orange bars; Catalog # LBHS000 and LMPM000, respectively).

Superior Performance Over the Competition

Percentage Recovery of Luminex Panels in Serum

Human Luminex Performance Panel Recovery Competitor Comparison. Human XL Cytokine Luminex Performance Panel (Catalog #FCSTM18) run against similar cytokine panels from two leading competitors. Analytes spiked at three known concentrations throughout the range of the assay and run to measure response of the spiked sample matrix. In spike and recovery experiments, natural samples are spiked with the recombinant target analyte of interest to identify interference caused by sample matrices. Average percent recovery is shown for all common analytes. Red bars indicate design specifications for High-Performance Luminex assays (70%-130%).
