Product at a Glance

Name: Q-Plex™ Human Micronutrient (7-Plex)

Catalog: #565149HU

Kit Type: Multiplex ELISA

Multiplex Format: Antibody Array

Detection Method: Chemiluminescent

Analytes: AGP, CRP, Ferritin, sTfR, RBP4, Tg, HRP2

Product Overview

The Q-Plex™ Human Micronutrient Array (7-plex) is a fully quantitative chemiluminescent assay allowing concurrent measurement of biomarkers used in nutritional assessment in heparinized plasma samples. Analytes CRP, Ferritin, Thyroglobulin (Tg), and HRP2 are sandwich ELISAs while AGP, sTfR and RBP4 are competitive ELISAs. This product is alternatively known in previous publications as Multiplex Micronutrient Assessment Tool (MMAT).

A Human Micronutrient Assay kit contains a 96-well plate, with each well featuring the 7-plex along with a positive control and all the other reagents necessary to perform the test. Our high quality reagents help ensure the accuracy of your results.

Using just 5 µl of plasma (with 45 µl of diluent) per well, up to 80 wells can be tested for all seven markers in the panel in 2.5 hours. Q-Plex Arrays provide scientists with an easy-to-use and cost effective means of generating a biomarker profile for each sample.
