T cell ELISpot Assay Service
Outsource T cell ELISpot Assays to the Experts
ProImmune provides a seamless, high-throughput, core facility service for measuring cell mediated immunity in qualified T cell ELISpot assays for IFN-gamma, IL-2, IL-4, IL10, IL13, IL-17, Granzyme B, and many others.
When set up correctly, the Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSpot (ELISpot) assay is highly reproducible and sensitive cellular assay, particularly suited to high-throughput analysis of antigen-specific CD4+ and CD8+ T cell immune responses. It can allow detection of a secreted cytokine at the single cell level, as low as 1 cell in 100,000. For these reasons ELISpot is now a very widely used assay standard for monitoring T cell immune responses and validating new T cell epitopes.
Carrying out ELISpot assays in-house, particularly with inexperienced staff, can require significant effort and can be time consuming with variable results. You can now save time and resources, and minimize risk by relying on the expertise of ProImmune’s experienced team, who perform these assays routinely using optimized and standardized protocols with minimal variation.
Multi-center clinical trials pose the challenge of collecting, shipping and processing samples in a way that ensures consistency and repeatability. Sample logistics and preparation is probably the most important step in setting up successful assays for monitoring cell mediated immune responses. We have the experience and the capability to collect your samples wherever you are in North America and Europe and process them for maximum uniformity; sample preparation and shipping.
We have developed a streamlined service that makes outsourcing ELISpot rapid and very affordable compared to other commercial providers. Our assays are based on simple standardized formats, which follow this step-by-step process:
On request these processes can be adapted to any additional or alternative requirements.
The delivery time for results will vary depending on individual project requirements, but unless your project is large scale (10s of plates) we expect to offer a turnaround time of 4-6 weeks including peptide synthesis and shipment of cells.
Unlike other CROs, ProImmune has an unparalleled depth of experience in measuring adaptive immune responses. We also believe that time and efficiency are of the essence, which is why our service is designed to deliver unrivalled responsiveness, quality without compromise, and is more affordable than you may think.
