Meso Scale Discovery Assay Services: MSD-ECL Assays

Advantages of Meso Scale Discovery Assay Services:

  • Ability to target low analyte levels in small sample volumes empowered by the Meso Scale Discovery® Electrochemiluminesence (MSD-ECL) technology
  • Measure both high and low abundance analytes (normal and elevated levels) within the same sample with a 5-Log+ dynamic range
  • Patterned arrays and parallel biological processing offer optimal multiplex functionality
  • Robust matrix tolerance including serum, plasma, and tissue culture media (TCM), as well as various complex biological matrices
  • Quantify human, mouse, rat, and non-human primate analytes

PBL utilizes MSD's validated assay kits (V-Plex) to quantify up to 54 analytes within a single sample. This enables simultaneous comparison of the expression of pertinent cytokines, chemokines, and other biomarkers in samples from diseased versus normal subjects at different periods of time.


Over 180 fit-for-purpose singleplex and multiplex panels are available through PBL's MSD assay services. Below is a sampling of the V-Plex panels available. Please contact us for information on additional analytes available for human, or analyte panels available for other species.

Broad Range of Applications:


The unique detection technology provided by the MSD platform utilizes SULFO-TAG™ labels which emit light upon electrochemical stimulation. The intensity of light generated is captured via CCD camera and pixel intensities quantified. This system provides the basis for achieving measurement of a several log range of protein expression levels in a variety of matrices that cover a broad range of analytes, in normal and disease samples, as well as applications.
