Immunoassays for Other Applications
Although the clinical diagnostics and pharma sectors see the widest application of immunoassays, the same techniques can be employed in any situation where specific and sensitive detection of an analyte is required.
Other fields where Fleet Bioprocessing Ltd. have been able to exploit their immunoassay development skills include:
The biggest difference between these sectors is probably the regulatory environment, the requirements varying widely from one field to another. Technically these assays – and the challenges associated with them – are often very similar to their clinical and pharma equivalents.
Although not all will apply in every field, the phases described in the procedure for development of a clinical immunoassay are similar in essence, and it may be of value to review these with respect to your own non-clinical application.
