BitesizeBio.com has published a new article entitled “ELISA: How I Wonder What You Are”, which sheds light on the most important aspects of how to properly design an ELISA. Bioscientists and other interested individuals can view the full article at the Bitesize Bio website.
The article includes several interesting pieces of information, one in particular is that there are two options to setting up an ELISA. This should be of particular interest to bio scientists because each option requires different conditions and antibodies.
One of the most important piece of information the article tries to convey and communicate is that properly planning and using the correct reagents will help you achieve interpretable results. The best example of this is perhaps found in the following extract:
‘I discovered that an ELISA uses antibodies that bind to their respective target antigens on an ELISA plate, and it includes antibodies that are linked to an enzyme that converts a substrate into a colored product when the target antigen is present. More target means more color. ‘
In discussing the article’s creation, Dr. Amanda Welch, Editorial Manager at BitesizeBio.com said, “This article presents a quirky way to learn how to do an ELISA, it demystifies the process, and takes early career researcher through the planning process. I hope that it encourages researchers to use this sensitive method in their science.”
