Core Equipment: MesoScale Discovery QuickPlex SQ 120 Instrument

This instrument facilitates highly efficient biomarker assays to detect a wide range of analytes in biological fluids or cell extracts. The Mesoscale detection system consists of electrochemiluminescent tags and ultra-sensitive CCD cameras which yield high sensitivity and wide dynamic range. The major benefits of the service include:
  • onsite expertise is in place for conduct of your assays
  • enhanced assay sensitivity and linearity
  • high throughput enabling large studies
  • rapid assay turnaround time

A complete list of ready to use assays is available at: www.mesoscale.com. Custom designed kits are also available. We can assist with assay development and validation.
Please contact us for customization to your requirements.


FEES: Users may conduct assays themselves and have their assay plates read by the Core Technician (we offer training) or provide samples for the Core Technician to run.
