Multiplex-Enabled Biomarker Analysis for Improved Monitoring of Lupus Nephritis

27 November 2018

Lupus nephritis is an autoimmune condition affecting kidney function in both children and adults. Dr. Eve Smith, a NIHR Clinical Lecturer based at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool, UK discusses the difficulty clinicians have when monitoring the disease using traditional methods in the clinic, and how research into urine biomarker combinations using customized MILLIPLEX® Multiplex Assays powered by Luminex® xMAP technology, helps to save time, cost and amount of sample required to enable better monitoring of the condition.
