Bead-Based Immunoassays

Additional Options to Enhance Flexibility

Use BD™ CBA Functional Beads to conjugate for unique requirements. BD CBA Flex Set Functional Beads are unconjugated beads that allow researchers to conjugate their own antibody or protein of interest using sulfo-SMCC chemistry. The conjugation procedure takes less than four hours using common laboratory supplies along with the buffers in the BD CBA Functional Bead Conjugation Buffer Kit. This is an ideal platform for converting existing ELISAs into bead-based immunoassays that can be mixed with our portfolio of BD CBA Flex Set assays. The availability of multiple bead positions enables creation of novel multiplex panels, while the ability to prepare up to 1,000 tests in a single reaction ensures consistency across a large number of tests.
