BD ELISA Reagents

Test serum, plasma, and tissue culture supernatants

BD OptEIA™ sets are optimized to measure cytokine (and other soluble protein) levels in serum, plasma, and tissue culture supernatants. The detection antibodies in most sets are specifically fragmented to reduce background and nonspecific binding to autoantibodies and plasma proteins such as complement components, acute phase proteins, and fibronectin.

Save time and money

BD OptEIA sets are packaged for convenience with sufficient reagent for five or twenty 96-well plates. The components are pre-titered and QC-tested, and detailed instructions for dilution of the reagents are included with each set, virtually eliminating the need for tedious optimization experiments.

BD OptEIA sets contain:

  • Reagents for five or twenty ELISA plates
  • Capture antibody
  • Biotinylated detection antibody
  • Streptavidin-horseradish peroxidase
  • Recombinant standard
