Your Next Generation ELISA
Ella's combination of performance and workflow brings your immunoassays to the next level. In just 90 minutes you get highly reproducible validated assay data with no manual steps. The assay performance behind that data includes sub-picogram level sensitivity, 4+ logs of dynamic range and reproducibility that rivals the best laboratory automation. All in a compact package that doesn’t break your budget or your lab bench.
Ella does immunoassays in a microfluidic Simple Plex cartridge. It's like using a pre-kitted immunoassay, except everything's pre-loaded on the cartridge—even the calibration curve! All you need to do is add your sample and buffers and put the cartridge in Ella.
The immunoassay part works like this: sample runs through a microfluidic channel that binds your protein of interest. Next, Ella washes off unbound analyte and adds a detection reagent. Because each channel has three Glass Nano Reactors (GNRs) coated with a capture antibody, you get triplicate answers for each sample. Answers are then generated from the factory-calibrated standard curve that comes with every cartridge. Sound familiar? It's the same immunoassay you're used to, just without the errors that come with traditional assays.
