6 Tips to Optimize Your Immunoassay
List Aug 16, 2018 | by Audrey Gutierrez, PhD
Immunoassays are super fancy and sophisticated. These assays are developed and optimized to help you determine immune correlates of cancer treatments, or to determine which immune cells are “turned on” in the early stages of cancer, whether these cells are becoming exhausted by the chronic condition that is cancer, or what molecule can potentially be a target for immunotherapy.
The possibilities of what an immunoassay can do for your project are endless, limited only by your imagination, ok, and reagents, antibodies, equipment, time – well, you get the idea.
This list provides 6 tips for optimizing your immunoassay.
More specifically it highlights:
- General methods for optimization
- Important points to consider
- Challenges you may face
- Tips to overcome these challenges
Microbes have an important role in maintaining our own health and that of our environment. Therefore, the more information we can uncover, the better armed researchers are to prevent and treat disease, protect and restore the environment and harness the key beneficial properties microbes offer. This list looks at recent advances that have enabled researchers to better understand microbial communities at the genomic level.READ MORE
