Immunoassays and Total Protein
We've put a few twists on the traditional immunoassay that makes them a lot easier to do, and added full-on automation.
The Simple Plex™ assay run on Ella is a fully automated, multi-analyte, mini ELISA. You'll get the same specificity of a single-analyte ELISA, only with greater sensitivity and a broader dynamic range. Samples are split across isolated microfluidic channels containing analyte-specific, low surface area GNRs (glass nano reactors), so only very low sample volumes are needed. This also results in data that's free of cross-reactivity.
Simple Western™ assays use antibody immunodetection to identify, quantitate and characterize target proteins. The entire immunodetection process takes place in a capilliary, and you'll only use a few nanoliters of reagent. Because of this unique capillary-based design, Simple Westerns are highly quantitative, incredibly sensitive and are completely automated too.
