ELISA-like Assay Formats and the Benefits of Assay Automation

Bringing automation on any scale into your lab can be an intimidating prospect, especially for new users. There can be significant benefits to automating a method or process, but there are also many factors to consider and even more potential pitfalls. It is a common misconception that automation or integrated platforms have to be big, expensive and complex. There is also a common misconception that less complex assay formats don’t benefit from automation. Implementing automation can be as complex as large, walk-away high-throughput screening platforms or as simple as a plate reader and stacker, or any combination in between. Thoughtful planning and careful implementation are the two factors that determine the overall success of the process.
This webinar will explore the benefits of automating less complex assay formats while also addressing some of the considerations that need to be examined, such as scope, scale and cost. We will focus on ELISA and “ELISA-like” assay formats and provide an example of an existing integration used for MSD-based antibody discovery.
Learning objectives:
  • Understanding of the many variants of the classic ELISA assay as well as newer, “ELISA-like” assay formats and the benefits that they bring.
  • Understand key challenges to automating assay methods or entire processes.
