The core utilizes a high throughput multiplexing suspension array system (Luminex Corp) which enables the simultaneous quantitation of a wide array of cytokines and mediators (up to 100) simultaneously in a single human (i.e. serum, lavage, sputum, cell culture supernatants, etc.) or mouse sample. This assay is particularly useful for measurement of mediators/cytokines in scarce human samples (50ul).
DHC will subsidize the cost of performing a Luminex assay by providing 25% of the total charge with a subsidy limit of $2,400 per DHC member per year. This subsidy is subject to change based upon the availability of funds.

To ensure that you receive the subsidy, be sure to select a budget number that qualifies as supporting digestive disease research when prompted for the payment source in the online ordering system.
