New Analyte Development

With a fast turnaround, R&D Systems can add new targets to your existing Luminex panel. Using the extensive collection of catalog and non-catalog antibodies and proteins, our teams can quickly assess the feasibility of your target and add it to an existing panel, ultimately reducing your time to data and minimizing the sample volume required.

Bead Region Conflict Resolution

Is a bead region conflict preventing you from getting all your analytes on the same panel? We can reassign bead regions so you can get all your results with one assay. Bead region change services offered at no extra charge!*

Application Note: Custom Coronavirus Serological Assay

Application Note: Custom Coronavirus Serological Assay

To what degree does exposure to the common cold virus, SARS-CoV or MERS-CoV enhance or diminish immunity to SARS-CoV-2? To answer this question, investigators need to be able to evaluate the specificity and cross-reactivity of the immune response to coronaviruses. R&D Systems, a Bio-Techne brand has developed a novel custom Luminex serological assay that distinguishes between coronavirus subtypes. Using our high-quality recombinant proteins, this antigen-down assay saves time and precious samples by multiplexing many coronavirus subtypes simultaneously in each sample.
