Multiplex Assays on Ella

Want a higher quality multiplex immunoassay?

Simple Plex assays on Ella provide a different approach to multiplexing. Instead of running all the assays together, Ella only runs two assays per channel. This spatial separation combined with a high level of validation ensures that you get the best possible performance. Multiplex immunoassays on Ella are validated to the same parameters as the single plex and multianalyte cartridges, ensuring you get the same assay results no matter the cartridge format.
