Guide to ELISA Kit Package Types

Let us answer your questions about which ELISA kit is right for your research.  Whether you want to optimize your own assay or prefer a pre-optimized, ready-to-use kit for the fastest time to answer, we have an option for your research needs.

ELISA kit package types

For most targets, the detection antibody is biotinylated, in which case the HRP Conjugate is streptavidin-HRP.

ELISA Kits (with pre-coated plate) are complete, ready-to-use kits that include a detailed protocol and all the required reagents to perform a quantitative sandwich ELISA with a variety of samples (e.g. serum, plasma, cell culture supernatants). Each kit has lot-optimized reagents titrated to the pre-coated plate to ensure maximum sensitivity and ease-of-use. Any changes to the protocol may affect the ELISA results and will require additional optimization to yield the best results.

Antibody Pair Kits include validated matched pairs of antibodies and calibrated standard for custom ELISA development. Using the recommended buffers described in the detailed protocol, these kits provide bulk antibody pairs for analyzing five to forty 96-well plates. The reagents are optimized for reliable performance using the specific antibody concentrations described in the protocol, but researchers can modify and re-optimize the protocol as needed.

Reagent Kits include pre-titered coating and detection antibodies, recommended buffers and a detailed protocol for preparing a quantitative sandwich ELISA. They require users to separately purchase plates and buffers and to coat the capture antibody at the specified concentration. Reagent Kits are designed to give optimal results for cell culture supernatants with the specific protocol. However, the reagent format provides flexibility to researchers to potentially modify and re-optimize the protocol as needed.
