Simple Plex for Preclinical Research

More Efficient Immunoassays for Preclinical Research

Preclinical development is a critical period of the drug development process and Simple Plex can help you get more data from precious samples, reducing the need for expensive animal models.

Compared to traditional plate-based approaches Simple Plex assays reduce sample volume requirements by up to 90%, making sure that samples from your models are available for all the characterization you need.

With a highly automated and standardized workflow Simple Plex assays also decrease the operator time required to execute an immunoassay by 80%, which ensures your scientists are free to take on higher values activities, and your therapeutic gets to the next stage faster.

Low Volume High Quality Immunoassay Results

  • Simple Plex mouse and rat assays require at most 25µl of sample and provide up to 12 data points from each sample
  • With a four-log range of detection, Simple Plex assays have the sensitivity to pick up even very low picogram-per-milliliter levels of endogenous analyte
  • Ella ensures the standardization of your immunoassay, as everything is pre-packaged, pre-optimized, and pre-loaded

Simple Plex Mouse Assays for Preclinical Research

Simple Plex mouse assays are available in multianalyte (32x4, 16x4) and single plex (72x1) formats.

Simple Plex Rat Assays for Preclinical Research

Simple Plex rat assays are available in multianalyte (32x4, 16x4) and single plex (72x1) formats.
