Multiplex Analysis (Bead-based)
Multiplex Immunoassays for the Detection of Extracellular and Intracellular Anyalytes Using Flow Cytometry
Abstract: Assay Designs has launched a multiplex bead immunoassay platform (MultiBead™) which incorporates flow cytometry as the assay readout. The immunoassays are carried out on the surface of fluorophore labeled polystyrene beads.
ArthritoMab™ Antibody Cocktail: a cocktail of anti-collagen type II antibodies induce a synchronized model of Arthritis in just 12 days.
The CIA model is mediated by autoantibodies, which bind to a particular region of type II collagen (CII) and complement. Research has shown an antibody cocktail of collagen type II antibodies selected for their epitope specificity can induce arthritis.
