Radioimmunoassay and Biomarkers Core (Penn)

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Core Laboratory


  1. Resource Description
    "The assay service has proven essential for current research in the DRC and Penn community. The core used to focus mainly on rat and human insulin, glucagon and C-peptide to a diverse, high-volume and cost-effective service. Over 50 different diabetes and endocrinology-related markers can be assayed. In conjunction with the Clinical and Translational Research Center (CTRC), we are now offering multiple analyte (multiplex) services. As part of a collaborative initiative, Dr. Collins initiated and established Luminex IS100 multiplex ELISA services. This system uses cell-sorting technology to measure multiple proteins simultaneously. This technology will be of great use for investigators studying transgenic mice, where sample volumes are low. In addition, the multiplex platform allows for screening of human cohorts in disease research particularly of small volume in repeated sampling protocols. The objectives of the Radioimmunoassay and Biomarker Core includes: • delivery of new services to existing and new investigators • development of informatics infrastructure for efficient delivery of service • engage proactively in outreach to the DRC/PENN research community to enhance efficiency, cost-sharing and increase users of Biomarker Core services." The assay services listed are not an exhaustive list but rather a list of assay services we have provided in the past. Please contact the RIA/Biomarkers core if you would like to assay for an analyte that is not listed. We can help you find the appropriate kit and provide the assay service.
