Create your own ELISA with high-performing matched antibody pairs.
Reviewed December 13, 2021
Our matched antibody pairs come in two formats:
Our carrier-free matched antibody pairs and kits deliver consistent, specific, and sensitive results.
High-throughput screening (HTS) and matched antibody pairs
Getting the most out of your HTS and drug discovery requires optimal assay development to generate the largest volume of data in the shortest possible time. Our matched antibody pairs are ideal for tailoring your ELISA assays to your own plate systems as they can be used in 96 or 384-well formats to scale up your HTS. Our antibody pairs are extremely flexible; they can be used with many different platforms and run using standard plate readers.
In addition to ELISA assays, our matched antibody pairs can be used in other assays adapted to high-throughput scale such as fluorescent proximity assays (TR-FRET: Time-Resolved Fluorescence Energy Transfer). With over 1,300 carrier-free antibody pairs and over 200 matched antibody pair kits, you get immediate access to a huge variety of antibody pairs in an entirely customizable format. The range of carrier-free pairs on our catalog is also growing every year to give you access to the target you need. The capture and detector antibodies can also be purchased separately for extra flexibility in designing and scaling up your assay.
