Bio-Rad Laboratories has released a technical note (tech note 5654A) describing the study of an evaluation of cancer biomarkers. In the study, Bio-Rad researchers evaluated the Bio-Plex suspension array system’s ability to detect the levels of nine biomarkers, which were selected for their potential clinical relevance to cancer development. The nine biomarkers: angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2), VEGF, PDGF-BB, leptin, PECAM-1, IL-8, follistatin, HGF and G-CSF were collected in sera from four different types of cancer patients.
