Introduction Diaclone's DIAplex Bead-based Immunoassays

Diaclone DIAplex is a sensitive multiplex fluorescent bead-based immunoassay for the simultaneous quantification of multiple analytes from a single sample by flow cytometry.

Utilising bead populations with distinct fluorescence intensities and unique antibody specificities, Diaclone DIAplex can accurately measure multiple analytes in a single sample with a significantly reduced assay time and sample volume requirement when compared to traditional ELISA techniques.

How DIAplex works

diaplex workflow by MBIOSCIENCE

1. Antibodies highly specific to the analytes to be detected are coupled to fluorescently labelled detection beads. Each bead is analogous to an individually coated well in an ELISA providing a capture surface for a specific analyte.

2. One (simplex) or more (multiplex) populations of the beads are combined in suspension with the sample or standard under test. Any analytes present in the sample will bind to the specific antibodies linked to the fluorescent beads.

3. A biotin-conjugated antibody mixture is then added which binds to any analytes captured by the first antibodies.

4. Streptavidin-Phycoerythrin (PE) is added, which binds to the biotin conjugates and emits a yellow fluorescent signal.

5. The unique size and fluroescent signature of each bead is differentiated by flow cytometry.

6. Following sample data acquisition using a flow cytometer, analyte concentration in the test sample is calculated simply by using the DIAplex analysis software provided.
