Episode 12 – ELISA assays with Dr Ana Miletic and Anna Dey, Kyowa Kirin & Dr Cathy Olsen, Molecular Devices
In this episode, experts discuss how they use ELISA assays in their research as well as the specific benefits of this kind of immunoassay.
In this podcast, in association with Molecular Devices, we cover ELISA assays, their advantages and automation with experts Dr Ana Miletic, Senior Research Scientist and Anna Dey, Senior Research Associate at Kyowa Kirin, as well as Dr Cathy Olsen, Senior Applications Scientist at Molecular Devices.
Listen now to discover how ELISA assays work, why they are highly sensitive and how they are used within our experts’ research, plus much more!
Key learning points:
- How ELISA assays can support a wide range of research in drug discovery and development
- Advantages of ELISA assays compared to other immunoassays
- What kind of instrumentation is used for ELISA assays and what elements of an automation platform are most critical for success
- What research directions have been opened up through the use of ELISAs.
