This bead kit can be used for many applications, including:
Antibody detection assays
Protein detection assays
Protein-protein interaction assays
In a typical AlphaScreen assay, one biomolecule of interested is biotinylated and associates with the Streptavidin-coated Donor beads. The other biomolecule is an anti-species antibody, and associates with the corresponding AlphaScreen anti-species Acceptor beads. If the two biomolecules bind to each other, the Donor and Acceptor beads are brought into proximity. Excitation of the Donor beads causes the release of singlet oxygen, which diffuses and triggers the emission of light from the Acceptor beads when in proximity. The amount of light is directly proportional to the degree of interaction. Competition formats are also possible, using the biotinylated FITC probe provided in the kit. This kit contains enough reagents to run 500 wells in 384-well format, using a 25 µL reaction volume.

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.
