"EMD Millipore is committed to continue bringing to researchers the largest selection of assays and analytes for Luminex's instrument portfolio," said John Sweeney , head of life sciences business at EMD Millipore. "This renewal of our partnership with Luminex ensures that EMD Millipore can provide customers with a complete solution for multiplexed protein detection—encompassing assay kits, instruments, software and services—that will support them over the years."

EMD Millipore, a leader in multiplex assay kit development, has continued to push into emerging areas of research and recently announced the availability of MILLIPLEX® map human stem cell pluripotency kits and MILLIPLEX® map kits for cellular metabolism.
