Product Overview

Cytokine release syndrome (CRS) occurs after treatment of some types of immunotherapy, such as monoclonal antibodies and CAR-T cells, when a large number of cytokines are rapidly released into the blood stream from immune cells affected by the immunotherapy. Symptoms include fever, headache, and a rapid heartbeat, but severe reactions can be fatal.

The Q-Plex Human Cytokine Release Syndrome (16-Plex) is a fully quantitative ELISA-based chemiluminescent assay allowing the concurrent measurement of 16 biomarkers or analytes. Using only 25 µL of sample per well, up to 80 samples can be assayed for all 16 markers in the panel within 4.83 hours.

The Q-Plex Human Cytokine Release Syndrome (16-Plex) provides researchers an easy to use and cost-effective means of generating a cytokine profile for each sample. Q-Plex plates are built by adsorbing 16 distinct capture antibodies in a defined array to the bottom of each well. Our high-quality reagents help ensure the accuracy of your results.

Requires the Q-View™ Imaging System for analysis

Kit Content

Each kit contains a 96-well plate, featuring the relevant biomarker panel in each well, and all reagents required to perform testing.

Reagents Include:

  • Calibrator
  • Detection Mix
  • Substrate
  • Sample Diluents

All Quansys Q-Plex™ Multiplex and Singleplex assays require the use of the Q-View™ software to read and interpret the test results. A fully-functional, free trial version of the software is available to download, install, and use to analyze your first kit(s). At the end of the trial period, a purchased license is required to continue the use of the Q-View software.

Q-Plex arrays are developed and optimized to work with Q-View imagers. Quansys does not guarantee the results obtained from other imagers and not all imagers are compatible with Quansys Q-Plex arrays.
