Sensitivity is critical for immunoassays so that analytes present at low levels can be accurately measured. Without proper sensitivity, low abundance analytes can be missed completely even if they are present in a sample. Additionally, it can be difficult to compare healthy vs. disease samples since analytes that are overexpressed in disease states are often present at very low levels in healthy individuals. Our Luminex High Performance Assays provide superior sensitivity, and here's how:
