The porcine is one of the major food sources in many parts of the world. In addition, porcine has close homology with humans in heart size and flow rate, skin, liver enzymes and bone healing, making the porcine a major biomedical model for human medical research. The porcine model can replace many canine and non-human primate models in many research areas such as cardiovascular, pharmacology, toxicology, aging and skeletal applications. Currently, "miniature pig" models are being developed that maintain similar heart size and function to humans, but are not too old, allowing for multi-generational studies in a relatively short period of time, significantly increasing the use of porcine models in scientific research.
Using pigs as biomedical models, a full understanding of their immunity is essential for the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases and the development of effective vaccines and therapeutic agents. Creative Proteomics offers the Porcine Luminex Cytokine Panel, a microbead-based multiplex assay that allows simultaneous analysis of multiple cytokine and chemokine biomarkers in porcine serum, plasma and cell culture samples.
The table below shows the types of porcine Luminex protein analysis. You can choose from a variety of specifications as needed.

Advantages of Porcine Luminex Multiplex Platform
- High throughput and high speed: The analysis fluorescence speed can reach up to 5000~15000 pcs/s. It can perform real-time, qualitative and quantitative analysis of many different target molecules in the same sample at the same time in less than 3h.
- High sensitivity: The detection range can reach 3~5 orders of magnitude, and the lowest detection concentration can reach 0.1 pg/mL.
- High specificity and accuracy: homogeneous immunoassay is used without washing, which reduces the error of experimental results caused by washing during operation. Flow laser technology is used in the assay to detect each microsphere, preventing interference from heteroantigens (antibodies) in the specimen.
- Small amount of specimens: The simultaneous detection of multiple indicators in the same reaction well significantly reduces the amount of specimens compared to other methods, making it suitable for the detection of rare specimens.
