An Introduction To ELISA Kits

The ELISA Kit (enzyme linked immunosorbent kit) is the most commonly used technology in enzyme immune-assay technology. It is used primarily in immunology to detect antigens or antibodies in samples. The ELISA can be used in medicine and plant pathology as well as quality control in many industries such as the ELISA application for the food industry.

An ELISA kit from Boster Bio involves attaching a capture antibody support to a solid phase. The ELISA kit allows for the addition of samples containing known and unknown antigens in a buffer or matrix that minimizes attachment to the solid phases. The detection of the antigen is made easier by adding an enzyme-labeled protein.

The ELISA method can be used to quantify pathological antigens. There are many variations of this method. ELISAs can be used for high-throughput screening as they provide consistent, rapid and easy analysis. Sandwich format has the best results. It uses highly purified, pre-matched detection antibodies and capture antibodies. The signal generated is highly sensitive and specific.

The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay is a powerful tool for detecting and quantifying a particular protein in a complex mixture. It allows for analysis of proteins immobilized in microplates with specific antibodies. ELISAs are usually performed on 96-well and 384-well polystyrene plate, which passively bind proteins and antibodies. 

ELISA kits can be used to quickly and accurately identify and quantify targets in samples and cultures. There are many options available, including competitive ELISA and sandwich ELISA, as well cell-based ELISA Kits that can be used to identify targets. These ELISA kits come with pre-coated plates that are coated with standards, buffers, capture/detection antibodies and other reagents.
