AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in buffer, cell culture media, serum and plasma in a highly sensitive, quantitative, reproducible and user-friendly mode. In an AlphaLISA assay, a Biotinylated Anti-Analyte Antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated Alpha Donor beads, while another Anti-Analyte Antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads provokes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.

Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is a 35.5 kDa heterodimer (alpha and beta unit) glycoprotein that is synthesized by the anterior pituitary gland and regulates the fertility processes. The FSH molecule shares a common subunit (alpha chain) with Luteinizing Hormone (LH), Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH), and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) while the beta subunit of FSH varies from LH, TSH, and hCH. The beta subunit is known to carry out specific biological activities on the ovary and testis. The level of FSH in serum is an excellent indicator for determining the status of oocyte maturation and follicle development in female. Infertility in females is often associated with mutations of the FSH gene resulting in reduced FSH synthesis. FSH is measured in International Units (IU). For recombinant FSH, one IU corresponds to approximately 0.065 to 0.075 µg of protein.
