QuantiGene RNA Assays measure gene targets directly from cell lysates or tissue homogenates without the need for RNA purification. Target RNA transcripts are captured through probe hybridization, followed by branched DNA-based signal amplification. The signal is read using a Luminex instrument for multiplex assays or a luminometer for singleplex assays.
The Luminex Systems are a series comprised of three instrument models—MAGPIX, Luminex 200 (LX200), and FLEXMAP 3D models. Luminex instruments are required to read both the QuantiGene Plex and ProcartaPlex assays. As a Luminex partner, the entire Luminex portfolio of multiplexing instruments can be obtained directly from Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Invitrogen ProcartaPlex immunoassays are antibody-based, magnetic bead reagent kits and panels for multiplex protein quantitation using the Luminex instrument platform. The assays cover more than 300 cytokines, chemokines, growth factors, and other protein targets from human, mouse, rat, non-human primate, canine, and other species.
Whether you need to measure photometry, fluorometry, luminometry (QuantiGene Singleplex assays), time-resolved fluorometry or AlphaScreen assays, we offer a microplate reader solution for your lab.
