Assay kits streamline workflows by providing researchers with a fully optimized, ready-to-use product for accurate detection and quantification of a specific biomolecule. Containing all the necessary components to rapidly generate high-quality results from often limiting sample material, assay kits save both time and resource by reducing the need for in-house assay development and optimization.
What are the different types of assay kits?
ELISA test kits and chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) kits are among the most widely used assay kit formats. Encompassing direct, indirect and sandwich assay techniques, the main difference between ELISA and CLIA is the method of detection. While ELISA kits typically rely on an enzyme-conjugated antibody to catalyze the conversion of a colorimetric substrate, chemiluminescence immunoassay kits instead use antibody-enzyme conjugates to produce a chemiluminescent readout. Benefiting from greater sensitivity and a broader dynamic range than many colorimetric methods, chemiluminescence immunoassay kits are often preferred for the detection of low abundance analytes.
American Research Products supplies a comprehensive portfolio of assay kits to detect a wide range of analytes. We distribute for ELISA kit manufacturers including Biospes, BlueGene Biotech, CUSABIO, Elabscience Biotechnology, USCN Life Science, YH Biosearch, and more to offer assay kits for all your research needs.
