Webinar: Dynamic pediatric reference value distributions for plasma cytokines

Accurate platform-specific reference intervals (RIs) established using a healthy pediatric population are essential for interpretation of cytokine expression patterns in children. They provide a baseline to which laboratory test results can be compared in clinical practice. 

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • About the CALIPER (Canadian Laboratory Initiative on Pediatric Reference Intervals) program and how it established a comprehensive database of pediatric RIs for over 180 clinical biomarkers.
  • How the stratification of cytokine results based on age and/or sex specific RIs is expected to facilitate more accurate interpretation of cytokine expression patterns.
  • About Ella™, a multi-analyte immunoassay technology the CALIPER team is using to investigate pediatric cytokine profiles.

If you’re an academic, translational, or clinical researcher you don’t want to miss this insightful discussion. Register now for the webinar “Dynamic pediatric reference value distributions for plasma cytokines” to attend live on Wednesday, November 3rd at 11 AM ET or to ensure you receive the on-demand recording.
