The XL Cytokine Discovery Luminex High Performance Assay outperformed other suppliers’ assays when tested for linearity of dilution, a common method for assessing assay accuracy. The results for IL-2 are shown below; click here to see more data.
Our assay development is second to none, and we’ve proven this again by testing our new Human XL Cytokine Discovery Panel side by side with panels from three other Luminex suppliers. We tested for linearity of dilution, a common method for assessing assay accuracy, and our XL Cytokine Discovery Panel outperformed other suppliers' assays using serum, plasma, or both for every analyte shown below.
Accurate assays yield a straight line on the graphs below at or near 100% because the analyte being measured is accurately detected as samples are diluted. If the line deviates far from 100% as samples are diluted, this is an indicator that the assay is not accurately measuring the analyte of interest. For this study, a known concentration of the appropriate recombinant protein was spiked into serum or plasma and assayed by three-fold serial dilutions for each XL Cytokine Discovery Luminex Performance Assay and for each supplier Luminex assay.* Sample values were back-calculated based on the standard curve, normalized to the initial sample dilution, and represented as % recovery vs. sample dilution. Remember, a straight line equals an accurate assay!
*When one or more suppliers are absent for an analyte below this is because the supplier's panel did not include that analyte, we were unable to generate data with that kit, or the performance was comparable to the XL Cytokine Discovery Panel.

Note - the data collected for the 1:27 dilution in plasma with Supplier B's kit fell outside the standard curve range and was not included.
