ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) is probably the most widely used biochemical method in laboratory analysis and diagnostics. Analytes such as peptides, proteins, antibodies and hormones can be detected selectively in low concentrations among a multitude of other substances and be quantified. Additionally, ELISAs are rapid, sensitive, cost-effective and can be performed in a high-throughput manner. ELISA is used in a variety of different assay types (e.g. direct ELISA, indirect ELISA, sandwich ELISA, competitive ELISA). Nevertheless, all ELISA variants are based on the same principle the binding of one assay component – antigen or specific antibody – to a solid surface and the selective interaction between both assay components. Molecules not specifically interacting with the assay component bound to the solid surface are washed away during the assay. For detection of the interaction the antibody or antigen is labelled or linked to an enzyme (direct ELISA). Alternatively, a secondary antibody conjugate can be used (indirect ELISA). The assay is processed by adding an enzymatic substrate to produce a measurable signal (colorimetric, fluorescent or luminescent). The strength of the signal indicates the quantity of analytes in the sample.A Microplate for Any Requirement
Our comprehensive portfolio has a microplate that will almost certainly match your exact requirements, whether you’re conducting colorimetric, fluorescence or luminescence studies. With surfaces optimised for antibody capture, we offer a wide selection of microplates in 96-
well formats. Available in clear, black and white colours and different well profiles, as well as removable and breakable well modules, our microplates are designed to accommodate all your laboratories technical and throughput requirements.
With a uniform footprint conforming to ANSI SLAS 1-2004 (American National Standards Institute and Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening)
all our microplates can be used on any instrumentation also conforming to this standard. This means that our microplates can be easily incorporated into any laboratory setting, including those adopting automated sample handling and detection methodologies, as well as high throughput testing.
UK Based Support
Greiner Bio-One can supply these microplates to any laboratory in the United Kingdom, backed up by our complete technical service and after sales support.
