Multiplex Protein Array Platforms from Diagnosticum

Diagnosticum is developing multiplex serological assays based on a common protein array platform. These assays utilize the proprietary AbC arrays technology (patent pending) and provide comprehensive information about serum autoantibodies in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and about serological reactivities of prediabetic (IR, insulin resistance) subjects.
The platform consists of protein array chips with disease-specific content, reagent and buffer sets and an array reader instrument.Chips contains internal references for semiquantitative determination of IgG, IgM, IgA and/or C3, C4 binding. The protein array chip slides hold 16 arrays of which 15 are for sample measurement, one for reference measurements.Slides are compatible with standard laser scanning equipment for 1x3 inch microscopic slides and direct surface scanning with two lasers.
