Sensitive, Specific and Cost Effective Protein Expression Analysis

Reaching for Cell Based Assay Solutions Excellence

We have been receiving positive feedback from clients using our Quantibody® and RayBio® C-Series Membrane-Based Antibody Arrays. Our manufacturing partner, Raybiotech, is ISO 9000 certified insuring all arrays are made to exacting specification. The cost for measuring a single cytokine runs as low as 16 USD/Cytokine!

We use these arrays to test the blood serum of clients with autoimmune diseases to determine levels of cytokine and growth factor expression vs healthy controls. We also use them to determine proteins secreted by our  USB Derived hMSCs cultured in our hMSC Media. This gives us insight as to the protein expression patterns in our hMSC, Chondrogenesis and Osteogenesis Assays.

We are pleased to announce the addition of these new human and mouse arrays:

Quantibody® Human Growth Factor+Neurotrophin+Cytokine Array Q1-10. Precisely measures: Amphiregulin, BDNF, bFGF, BMP-4, BMP-5, BMP-7, beta-NGF, EGF, EGFR, EG-VEGF (PK1), FGF-4,FGF-7 (KGF), GDF-15, GDNF, Growth Hormone, HB-EGF, HGF, IGFBP-1, IGFBP-2, IGFBP-3, IGFBP-4, IGFBP-6, IGF-1, Insulin, M-CSF R, NGFR (TNFRSF16), NT-3, NT-4, Osteoprotegerin (TNFRSF11B), PDGF-AA, PLGF, SCF, SCF R (CD117/c-kit), TGF alpha, TGF beta 1, TGF beta 3, VEGF-A, VEGFR2, VEGFR3 and VEGF-D.
Mouse C-Series Cytokine Array. C1-2-Semi-quantitavely measures: GCSF,GM-CSF, IL-2, IL-3, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-6, IL-9, IL-10, IL-12 p40/p70, IL-12 p70, IL-13, IL-17A, IFN-gamma, MCP-1 (CCL2), MCP-5, RANTES (CCL5), SCF, TNF RI (TNFRSF1A), TNF alpha, Thrombopoietin, (TPO) and VEGF-A.


Images: Representative images obtained with RayBio® C-Series Antibody Arrays. These membranes were probed with conditioned media from two different cell lines. Membranes were exposed with Kodak X-Omat® film at room temperature for 1 minute. Note the strong signals of the Positive Control spots in the upper left and lower right corners.
