Full consulting services for all aspects of an assay, conjugation, or antibody development project.

Involving everything from immunogen design, generating highly specific antibodies, and scale-up manufacturing of projects.

We will not attempt any projects outside our experience and knowledge – instead offering suggestions on alternatives if we are not the best choice for a project, typically free of charge.

Assay Consulting Services

Custom Assay Development

In consultation with you, we will decide upon a strategy to give you the most robust assay to measure the analyte of interest using an appropriate detection mechanism: colorimetric, fluorescent, chemiluminescent, or bioluminescent.

Development Services

Activity Assay Development

Where the molecule present is detected by a readout based upon chemical or enzymatic activity.

Immunoassay Development

Where the amount of a small molecule (< 4,000 MW) is detected by a specific antibody binding either the molecule in the sample or the molecule labeled with enzyme onto a solid phase.

Learn More
ELISA Assay Development

Where an antigen is immobilized on the solid phase and antibody in the sample specific to that antigen binds and is then detected using a secondary antibody labeled with enzyme.

Learn More
Sandwich Immunoassay Development

Where the amount of a large molecule is detected by using two antibodies to the molecule; one to trap the molecule on the plate, and the other as a method to read how much is in the sample.

How the Process Works

Step 1: Non-disclosure Agreement
To engage our services, we will sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).

Step 2: Discovery
With NDA in place, tell us everything you know about the molecule and what you want to get from the product.

Step 3: Timing, Costs, and Logistics
Projects are carried out on a time and materials basis at a reasonable cost set after our discussion.

Step 4: Fulfillment
You only pay for actual Arbor Assays scientist time, plus any special raw materials.
