We provide innovative, tested, ready-to-go assays for your ever-changing detection needs.
Every day, our R&D scientists are busy developing fully validated, ready-to-use kits and reagents for the hottest new targets – the ones you’re working on now. Over the past couple of years, we’ve released over 300 new products, with plans to release even new ones every month.
The products below represent our newest assays. Be sure to check back frequently, as we’re constantly working to keep pace with the speed of your innovation to provide you with the products you need.
Virtually anything can be measured with Alpha Technology quickly and easily, including enzymes, receptor-ligand interactions, low-affinity interactions, second messenger levels, DNA, RNA, proteins, protein:protein interactions, peptides, sugars and small molecules.
Ease-of-use: homogeneous, no-wash assay, with no separation steps
Fast: results in 3 hours for most applications
High sensitivity: detect down to femtogram levels of target
Large dynamic range: 4-5 logs
Compatible with many samples types: serum, plasma, cerbrospinal fluid (CSF), tissue extracts, cell culture supernatants, cell lysates, and more
Choose the Alpha solution that’s right for you
AlphaLISA – when running large numbers of ELISA from the same sample or working with difficult matrix, serum or plasma
AlphaLISA SureFire Ultra and AlphaScreen SureFire – an excellent choice for studying pathways or phosphorylated proteins in whole cells, or studying endogenous receptors
AlphaScreen – perfect for studying fusion-tagged proteins or protein:protein interactions, and for testing cAMP, phosphorylated peptides or samples in a simple matrix
Alpha Toolbox – when your target doesn’t have an off-the-shelf kit, the toolbox gives you everything you need to create your own
From assay development to primary and secondary screening, LANCE Ultra Technology provides researchers with robust and easy-to-use assays adaptable to a variety of targets on a broad range of multimode detectors, with the fastest time-to-results in a commercially-available TR-FRET assay.
Homogeneous dispense-and-read technology
384-well and 1536-well formats
LANCE and LANCE (LANthanide Chelate Excitation) Ultra are our TR-FRET (time-resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer), homogeneous (no wash) technologies. One binding partner of interest is labeled with a donor fluorophore (a LANCE Europium chelate) and a second one is labeled with an acceptor fluorophore (ULight™ dye). Upon excitation at 320-340 nm, energy can be transferred from the donor Europium chelate to the acceptor fluorophore if sufficiently close for FRET (~10 nm). This results in the emission of light detectable at 665 nm.
The AlphaLISA®SureFire®Ultra™ total Akt1/2/3 assay is a sandwich immunoassay for quantitative detection of Akt1/2/3 (phosphorylated and non-phosphorylated) in cellular lysates using Alpha Technology. This assay is intended to be a normalization or control assay in conjunction with the AlphaLISA SureFire phospho-Akt1/2/3 assay.
The AlphaLISA® immunoassay kit for human CCL18 enables the quantitative determination of human chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 18 in buffer, human serum, cell media, and PBMC culture supernatant samples using a homogeneous AlphaLISA assay (no wash steps).
The Alpha SureFire® Ultra™ Multiplex kits allow the rapid, sensitive, and quantitative detection of two phosphoprotein targets in each well of an assay plate. This kit can be used in combination with any AlphaLISA SureFire Ultra assay to detect phospho-eIF4E (Ser209) in a multiplexed assay.
The AlphaLISA® immunoassay kit for human lambda light chain enables the quantitative determination of human λ light chain in buffered solution and cell culture supernatants using a homogeneous AlphaLISA assay (no wash steps).
The AlphaLISA®SureFire® Ultra™ Total SYK assay is a sandwich immunoassay for quantitative detection of SYK (both phosphorylated and non-phosphorylated) in cellular lysates using Alpha Technology. This assay is intended to be used as a normalization for phosphorylation studies.
The AlphaLISA® immunoassay kit for human Nicotinamide N-Methyltransferase (NNMT) enables the quantitative determination of human NNMT in buffered solution, cell culture media, and serum using a homogeneous AlphaLISA assay (no wash steps).
The Alpha SureFire® Ultra™ Multiplex kits allow the rapid, sensitive, and quantitative detection of two phosphoprotein targets in each well of an assay plate. This kit can be used in combination with any AlphaLISA SureFire Ultra assay to detect phospho-p38 MAPK (Thr180/Tyr182) in a multiplexed assay.
The AlphaLISA® immunoassay kit for human matrix metalloproteinase 23 (MMP-23) enables the quantitative determination of human MMP-23 in buffer, serum, cell culture media, and cell lysates using a homogeneous AlphaLISA assay (no wash steps).
Human lambda light chain standard, for use in running standard curves in AlphaLISA assays. This standard is already provided in the AlphaLISA human lambda light chain Detection Kit, but can also be ordered separately.
