G-Series Arrays are glass slide-based antibody arrays which allow researchers to conduct rapid, accurate expression profiling of hundreds of cytokines, chemokines, growth factors, proteases, soluble receptors and other proteins from any biological fluid. Like a traditional sandwich-based ELISA, this array uses a matched pair of cytokine-specific antibodies for detection. Like the Quantibody® Multiplex ELISA Arrays
, G-Series utilizes a highly sensitive and stable fluorescent readout which can be detected by most laser fluorescent scanner systems (see below for more info). After capturing the spot densities with a laser scanner, normalization of the raw data can be easily calculated by the researcher, or by a quick copy-paste into our excel-based Analysis Tool software.
This array as well as all catalog numbers beginning with 'GS' differ from the classic G-Series Arrays in a few important ways. First, each capture antibody is printed in quadruplicate instead of duplicate, delivering higher precision. Secondly, this array features the same antibody panels used in our Quantibody Arrays, allowing a seamless transition to our quantitative multiplex assay platform. Lastly, all 16 wells are spotted as sub-arrays, delivering easy handling of 16 samples simultaneously while consuming low sample volumes (10 - 100 µl per array).
For best results, store the entire kit frozen at -20°C upon arrival. Stored frozen, the kit will be stable for at least 6 months which is the duration of the product warranty period. Once thawed, store array slide(s), detection antibody cocktail, and Cy3-Conjugated Streptavidin at -20°C and all other reagents undiluted at 4°C for no more than 3 months.
