Product Launch: Introducing the PEPperCHIP® Human Epitome Microarray

For the very first time, the new PEPperCHIP® Human Epitome Microarray covers all linear human B-cell epitopes of the Immune Epitope Database including all epitopes of the most common vaccines.

 The new PEPperCHIP® Human Epitome Microarray

The 28,895 different peptides of the PEPperCHIP® Human Epitome Microarray are based on 23,163 database epitopes of 2,542 different proteins and 468 different organsims. Sorted by disease states, the PEPperCHIP® Human Epitome Microarray covers the following indications:

 

  • 8,504 epitopes of infectious diseases
  • 3,808 epitopes of autoimmune diseases including 301 citrullinated peptides
  • 3,451 epitopes of allergens
  • 199 cancer epitopes and 995 epitopes of other diseases
  • 1,481 epitopes of healthy controls
  • 4,661 epitopes of the most common vaccines

 

The vaccine content of the PEPperCHIP® Human Epitome Microarray includes all database epitopes of the most common (e.g. Diphtheria toxin, human poliovirus 3 strain Sabin, Clostridium tetani, measles virus, Bordetella pertussis, hepatitis A and B virus) as well as some less common vaccines (e.g. Japanese encephalitis virus, tick-borne encephalitis virus, rabies virus, West Nile virus).

 

The new PEPperCHIP® Human Epitome Microarray enables the highly multiplexed analysis of IgG, IgM and IgA antibody responses in human sera for a variety of applications:

 

  • comprehensive analysis of antibody profiles in patient sera
  • discovery of hidden or emerging diseases
  • monitoring of antibody titers after vaccination and/or infection
  • correlation of autoimmune disease with infections
  • cross-reactivity testing of monoclonal antibodies
  • and many more, equivalent to more than 28,000 peptide ELISAs at once

 

For more information on the epitope content of the new PEPperCHIP® Human Epitome Microarray, please download the material data sheet as well as the microarray layout scheme.

 

 

The new PEPperCHIP® Human Epitome Microarray is intended for research use and only available in combination with PEPperMAP® Service.
