Aptamers excel as binding reagents in ELISA replacement assays for antibiotics in complex media such as plasma, milk and others

18th May 2018.

Traditionally small molecules, such as antibiotics, have been difficult targets for ELISA development. Aptamer Group has selected aptamers that bind to small molecules, previously inaccessible to other binding technologies. Utilising our state-of-the-art automation and parallel processing techniques, we can select high affinity and highly specific aptamers against small molecule targets, in solution. These […]

ELONA: the evolution of ELISA

5th September, 2017
At Aptamer Group we consider it vital to invest in the scientists of tomorrow. A great method for achieving this is by providing an environment where students can expand their knowledge. By having close ties with the University of York, Aptamer Group is able to support student industrial placements. One student who has […]

Aptamer Applications: ELONA

27th June, 2017
An application that we have proven to be successful for aptamers is Enzyme-Linked Oligonucleotide Assays (ELONA). These are similar to ELISA but utilise the benefits that aptamers offer.

ELONA use aptamers in two ways; to capture the target molecule on the plate and for use as a detection molecule. After the sample is immobilised […]
