Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay Principle and Elisa Test Procedures.

Post Views: 45 Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is also known as an enzyme immunoassay (EIA). ELISA is defined as a biochemical technique used in many applications, including microbiology, blood screening, veterinary, and immunology, to detect antigens and antibodies present in a sample. ELISA technology is considered an essential diagnostic tool in plant and medicine pathology.…

Molecular and Cellular biology Applications of Lectin Conjugates

Molecular and Cellular biology Applications of Lectin Conjugates

Post Views: 102 Lectins are carbohydrate-binding proteins present in nearly all plants and a few animals as well. The word Lectins originated from a Latin word called ‘Legree,’ which means to select or pick. Lectins do not create any antigenic stimulation inside the immune system, but they do have the necessary capacity to bind analogously…

The Comprehensive Range of Monoclonal and Polyclonal antibodies against Infectious Agents

Post Views: 143 An antibody is a significant component hosting immune responses to viral pathogens, or other foreign invaders, such as chemicals, toxins, and pollens referred to as antigens. Antibodies can change to be highly specific to viral antigen-binding because of their unique maturation process. When an unknown substance invades the body, the immune system…

Range of Cytokines and Chemokines and its Clinical Significance

Post Views: 189 Cytokines and chemokines are referred to as immune-modulating agents that intercede and amend the responses of the system. The term “cytokine” is generated by two different Greek words: “cyto” meaning cell and “kinos” meaning movement. On the other hand, “chemokines” is a family unit of small cytokines, secreted by cells. Cytokines play…

Difference between line blots and Western blots

Difference between line blots and Western blots

Post Views: 304 What is western blot? Western blotting is also called Protein Immunoblotting because an antibody is mainly used to detect its antigen. It is a widely accepted analytical technique used to detect specific proteins in the given sample.  Western blot is generally used in research to separate and identify proteins. This technique separates…
