A new line of magnetic bead, microtiter plate-based metabolic assay kits is now available for use by biotech and other life science researchers.

The Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (Hercules, CA, USA) Bio-Plex Pro RBM Human Metabolic and Hormone Assay line comprises kits for the analysis of seven panels of highly relevant biomarkers involved in diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and hormonal control of metabolism and reproductive organs. The kits were developed in partnership with Myriad RBM, Inc., (Austin, TX, USA).

In the standard format, each kit contains one 96-well microtiter plate, magnetic capture beads, detection antibodies, standards, two-level controls, diluent, buffers, streptavidin-PE, and plate seals for the detection of up to eight human metabolic markers.

The assays are built on a magnetic bead platform, which allows data to be reported within three and a half hours. The kit format enables robust quantification of multiple proteins in human serum, plasma, and cell culture media samples. Kits are offered for research involving gut hormones and adipokines, pituitary hormones, diabetes (type I and type II), metabolic syndrome, obesity, CVD, and inflammation.

The Bio-Plex Pro RBM Human Metabolic and Hormone Assay line of kits is compatible with the Bio-Plex 100/200, Bio-Plex 3D, and Bio-Plex MAGPIX analytical platforms, as well as all other Luminex-based xMAP instruments and software.
