InnoScan 710-IR Scanner excels at cytokine detection in conjunction with pGOLD chips

Cytokines are a class of proteins that have emerging roles in diagnostics and therapeutics due to their role in cell signaling and immune system response1,2. Many key cytokines including interleukin-6 (IL-6) and interleukin-1 beta (IL-1  ), can range in concentration in the serum form femtomolar (fM) to nanomolar (nM) levels3,4. A 6 log dynamic range of cytokines maykes it difficult for conventional ELISA technology to accurately assess because of a 2-4 log dynamic range limit5. The InnoScan 710IR scanner from Innopsys, when coupled with pGOLD slides from Nirmidas Biotech, is able to quantify IL-1b levels over the relevant 6 logs of dynamic rage thanks to the near-infrared detection of the InnoScan 710-IR scanner and the metalenhanced fluorescence (MEF) capabilities of the pGOLD slides.
