The Rush Biomarkers Core (RBC) provides investigators a very cost-effective means to measure protein biomarkers (cytokines, growth factors, and autoantibodies) in a variety of matrices, including serum/plasma, synovial fluid, cerebrospinal fluid, and cellular lysates. We also evaluate signaling intermediates in cellular lysates with this approach on a routine basis, as a quantitative alternative to Western blot analysis.
The staff of the RBC is very experienced with this platform and has undergone extensive training at the Luminex Corporate headquarters in Austin, TX for assay performance, instrument maintenance, and custom assay development. We also offer training to help potential users further integrate this technology as part of their primary research effort.
