Eight Limitations of ELISA and How to Overcome Them Using Alternative Technologies

Introduction

The introduction of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) in the early 1970’s offered researchers a non-radiometric immunoassay platform without compromising sensitivity. Over the last 50 years scientists have made huge strides in disease research and drug discovery and a demand for greater assay throughput and sensitivity has evolved. In response, more robust immunoassays have been developed to address some of the limitations of the standard, colorimetric ELISA.

Find out about the most common limitations of traditional ELISAs and how different ELISA alternative technologies address these limitations.
