Luminex Core Laboratory

Lab 1.18 Hillman Cancer Center
5117 Centre Avenue
412-623-7748
F: 412-623-1415
Website

This facility uses the Laboratory Multianalyte Profiling (LabMAP™) system developed by Luminex Corporation. It is a flexible, easy-to-use protein analysis system that permits the simultaneous quantitative analysis of up to 100 different proteins, peptides, or DNA molecules in a single microtiter well. Multiplexing enables a comprehensive overview of complex biological systems and the inclusion of in-process controls using a minimum amount of sample. Potential applications include:

  • functional genomics
  • validation of drug leads
  • secondary screening
  • absorption and distribution
  • metabolism
  • high-throughput ELISA and Western blot assays.

The UPCI Luminex Core Laboratory can process and analyze samples using commercially available manufactured kits or unique Core developed kits.  The UPCI Luminex Core Laboratory can also develop custom analyte Luminex assays using investigator-supplied antibodies and a protein standard.
