BD® ELISPOT Reagents

Choose among several formats: ready-to-use kits with precoated BD® ELISPOT Plates, coat-it-yourself sets, and matched antibody pairs for your human, nonhuman primate or mouse research. The ELISPOT assay is a powerful tool for detecting and analyzing individual cells that secrete a particular protein in vitro. Although originally developed for analyzing specific antibody-secreting cells, the assay has been adapted to measure the frequencies of cells that produce and secrete a variety of other effector molecules such as cytokines.
