Webinar Wednesday: Immunoassay Multiplexing Master Class

June 20th, 2018 / Hilary Graham

From assay development to workflow protocols, how to run a multiplex immunoassay If you could run in 3 hours an immunoassay workflow that would normally take more than 60 hours, that wouldn’t be a tough decision, would it? A step-by-step tutorial webinar from Brett Houser at Bio-Rad shows you exactly how to make that transition.

Webinar Wednesday: Reduce False Positive Results in HLA Testing with Immucor Assay

May 2nd, 2018 / Hilary Graham

xMAP® bead-based multiplexing technology helps eliminate denatured antigens Scientists who perform HLA antibody tests are all too familiar with the challenge of false positives: many assays react with denatured antigens to generate a positive result even when the intact antigen was not detected. Various approaches have been used to overcome this, but a new method
