A Useful Guide for Analysis of Immune Markers by Fluorochrome (Luminex) Technique

The fluorochrome Luminex technique is a bead-based sandwich immunoassay that combines the enzyme-linked immuno sorbent assay (ELISA) with flow cytometry. The Luminex technique allows multiple cytokines to be measured simultaneously in small volumes and provides a convenient and sensitive tool for the detection of a large number of, e.g., extracellular secreted cytokines to characterize cytokine profiles.
