Microarray technology represents the evolution of the E.L.I.S.A. method.
For analyzing adverse food reactions, this method was developed to improve the determination of immunoglobulin G-reactive antibodies to specific food antigens, combining the reliability of an E.L.I.S.A. test with the sensitivity of microarray technology.
Why choose this method?
high number of antigens that can be tested simultaneously
reduced use of reagents
reduced volume of blood sample required
The production is completely automated and the antigens are fixed to nitrocellulose supports attached to a slide. At the end of the analysis, the slide is processed using a very high resolution scanner for data processing. This greatly increases the sensitivity and quality of the analytical data.
The reliability of the result is confirmed by comparison with a negative control, a positive control and a calibration curve for each individual analysis.
