Cell-Based Assays

Cell types

  • Immortal cell lines (haematopoietic cells or tumor cells)

  • Primary human cells; PBL, PBMC, neutrophils, purified T cells, purified B cells

  • Primary mouse cells; spleen lymph node, Peyer's patch, peritoneal exudates

Assays

  • Stimulus-induced cytokine production

  • Stimulus-induced signal transduction pathway analysis (phosphorylation)

  • T cell proliferation (CD3/CD28, MLR, SEB)

  • Neutrophil extracellular trap (NET) formation

  • Phagocytosis (fluorescent beads with or without opsonization)

  • Respiratory burst

  • DC generation/antigen presentation / T cell proliferation

  • MAPPS (MHC-associated peptide proteomics)

We are not limited to these! Tell us what you need and we can add something new.

ELISAs

  • Traditional cytokine ELISAs (TNF-α, IL-6, IL-4, IL-13, IL-5, IL-17α, IFNγ, IFNα/β, etc.)

  • Autoantibody ELISAs (ACPA, anti-collagen antibodies, anti-dsDNA, anti-OVA lgE, etc.)

  • Custom ELISAs with commercially available antibodies

  • Custom ELISAs with new mAb generation in house

Biochemical Assays
