How does a sandwich Elisa work?
Then, what is the Elisa test and how does it work?
An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, also called ELISA or EIA, is a test that detects and measures antibodies in your blood. This test can be used to determine if you have antibodies related to certain infectious conditions.
what is the detection limit of a typical sandwich Elisa assay? The detection limit is typically around 100pg/well which is less sensitive than colorimetric or chemiluminescent detection.
Consequently, what is sandwich Elisa used for?
The Sandwich Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) is one of the most efficient laboratory procedures used in detecting the presence and measuring the concentration of a target antigen in a completely unknown sample.
How is a sandwich Elisa performed?
A sandwich ELISA measures antigen between two layers of antibodies (capture and detection antibody). The target antigen must contain at least two antigenic sites capable of binding to antibodies. Monoclonal or polyclonal antibodies can be used as the capture and detection antibodies in sandwich ELISA systems.
