An ELISA (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay) is a biochemical method for determining the concentration of a desired material, typically an antibody or another protein of interest, within a complex protein mixture (such as serum). For example, Avacta’s SENSITEST® IgE ELISA detects the concentration of allergen-specific IgE antibody in an animal’s serum against a particular allergen. For more detailed information about ELISA’s, please visit the Practice Portal.
Following extensive research, Avacta Animal Health has developed its own unique CCD blocker. This is incorporated into to all of our canine and feline IgE environmental assays.
