PBL's Ultrasensitive Biomarker Testing Assay Services take advantage of the benefits of Single Molecule Array (Simoa) technology. This approach traps a single bead in low femtoliter-sized wells to allow “digital” measurement of each bead for the presence of analyte in a sandwich immunoassay. The enzymatic amplification of analyte binding vents on single beads in single wells yields low background signals, and can increase assay sensitivities up to several orders of magnitude over conventional assays. Biomarker assays run on this platform frequently exhibit sensitivities in the low to mid fg/ml range.

 

In combination with the markedly heightened sensitivities of these assays, the instrument’s capacity for digital measurement at low concentrations of target analyte and analog measurement at higher analyte concentrations ensures accuracy and precision across a wide dynamic range (> 4 logs) minimizing sample volume requirements and the need for multiple dilutions. Allowing quantification of biomarkers at unprecedented levels in serum, plasma, and additional matrices, PBL’s Simoa-based Assay Services yield robust and reproducible data enabling scientists to attain a better understanding of the contributions of difficult to measure analytes to biological and pathological responses.
