MILLIPLEX® Multiplex Immunoassays for Use in COVID-19 and Cytokine Storm Research



WEBINAR

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). First identified in Wuhan, China in December 2019, COVID-19 has since spread to become a global pandemic. In response to SARS-CoV-2 viral infection of the lungs, a cytokine storm can result. Acute or systemic inflammation results in fluid buildup in the lungs, respiratory distress, multiple organ failure, and can be fatal. We offer a wide array of MILLIPLEX® soluble protein panels and cell signaling kits to help elucidate the downstream signaling pathways when researching antiviral immune response. Our portfolio offers the widest range of analytes across the most species, including non-human primate panels for vaccine research.

Key Learnings:

  1. How MILLIPLEX® multiplex immunoassays can help you understand the immune response to SARS-CoV-2
  2. How to successfully integrate multiplex immunoassays into your disease research workflow
  3. How to generate the highest quality data using multiplex protein detection assays
