Description of service

UNISI will provide expertise in the measurement of cell signalling proteins, such as cytokines, chemokines and inflammatory biomarkers in multiple samples (including serum, plasma and tissue culture supernatants), using a multiplex suspension array system or a Cytometric bead assay. Both technologies allow the simultaneous detection of multiple factors in serum, plasma and tissue culture supernatants. UNISI will receive murine or human samples from users. Multiple biomarkers, such as cytokines, chemokines and growth factors will be detected using one of the available multiplex system to test up to 46 murine and 53 human analysts. Users will decide how many proteins will be tested and the analysis will be carried out by our technicians. Data analysis can be also performed.
