Screening Hybridoma Culture Supernatants Using ELISA
- 107 Downloads
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is a widely used method for the detection of antibody and is appropriate for use for screening hybridoma supernatants (1). As with radiobinding assays, it is a solid-phase binding assay that is quick, reliable, and accurate. The method is often preferred to radioactive assays, since the handling and disposal of radioisotopes is avoided and the enzyme conjugates are more stable than radioiodinated proteins. However, most of the substrates for the enzyme reactions are carcinogenic or toxic and, hence, require handling with care.
