Simple Plex Assays for Neuroscience

With immunoassays developed by industry leader R&D Systems, Ella gives you the data you need to power your neuroscience research with a high level of automation, validation and reliability.

Neurofilament Light (NF-L) in Serum and Plasma

Neurofilament light chain has been implicated as an important biomarker for a number of neurological disorders. The Simple Plex neurofilament light assay can quantify this biomarker in serum and plasma samples to provide highly robust and reproducible data.

Plasma NF-L levels

Highly Sensitive and Reproducible NF-L Measurements

With the Simple Plex NF-L assay on Ella you get measurements on an automated, robust and reproducible immunoassay platform. In our application note we demonstrate how Ella provides highly reproducible NF-L measurements even at the low levels detected in serum and plasma.

Learn how to bring your NF-L research to the next level with Ella.

NF-L and NF-H as Important Indicators of Neurodegeneration and Preeclampsia

Neurofilament heavy and light chains are associated with a number of pathological conditions, and both individually and in conjunction are promising better diagnosis and monitoring of a number of diseases. Learn how researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School and Cedars-Sinai in collaboration with Bio-Techne are exploring the promise of NF-L and NF-H as biomarkers.
