Boster Bio offers ELISA services with fast turnaround time. We offer the most cost-effective multiplex assays and a wide range of singleplex kits. Turbocharge your scientific research and preclinical data collection by working with the ELISA experts.
Since 1993, Boster has been manufacturing antibodies and ELISA kits for scientists around the world. Our founder developed Picokine™, a proprietary high sensitivity sandwich ELISA platform, in the early 2000s. Over the past two decades, we have developed 1,000+ highly sensitive Picokine™ ELISA kits which have been cited in over 6,000 publications to the end of 2019 (sources: Google Scholar, Bioz, and CiteAb). Hundreds of ELISA assays are run each week by the ELISA experts at Boster Bio. With its history and scale, Boster is able to provide you a unique combination of service quality, subject expertise, and cost savings when you need an ELISA service to streamline your workflow.
Their (Boster Bio) service exceeded my expectations. Lana responds quickly (within 1-2 hours) with professionalism. Good quality of data using low amount of sample volume at a fair price.

In a nutshell: You send us your samples, we test them for your analytes of interest and send you the results data.
Choose from a range of singleplex & multiplex ELISA kits or create a custom multiplex assay.
Ship your samples with 3-5 lbs dry ice to our facility and we'll get started.
We'll deliver detailed data results to you within 2-3 weeks of receiving your samples.
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is one of the most common methods for quantification of analytes in samples. Projects we run for our clients ranges from simple outsourced ELISAs to assay development for various applications (clinical, allergen, etc.). Typically, we go through the following workflow to engage each client and provide the best tailored service.
We discuss the goals of your assays and help you decide on analytes/biomarkers, format, and configuration. We have worked with experts in many subject matters and can provide scientific consultation for our customers in addition to simple outsourcing capacity.
We pick the right assay for you - singleplex or multiplex. Boster carries 1,000+ highly sensitive sandwich ELISA kits and a range of other ELISA kit formats. If you want to work with ELISA kits from other companies, we can procure them for you, or you can send your own ELISA kits to us. If no kit is available, we can develop an assay from antibody pairs. Certain antibody combinations are best for specific assay types. For example, in sandwich ELISAs, one antibody traps the analyte, and the other antibody is used to detect. These pairs are tested for compatibility. If you're interested in testing many analytes simultaneously, you can choose from our multiplex ELISA kits or request a custom multiplex ELISA kit.
Turnaround time: Generally 5-20 days
We test standard samples, matrices, conjugates, etc. in combination to create the prototype. We help you select standards and set aside key controls, etc.
We ramp up the testing scale for you, or we transfer the technology to your laboratory, ensuring that the assay works in your technicians' hands. We can also custom manufacture these kits for you if you want to develop them into a product.
If you want to use an ELISA kit or other reagents from another company, you can send it to us or we can procure it on your behalf.
Our service covers both singleplex & multiplex ELISA testing, so you can choose what best suits your research needs. For multiplex testing, we've joined forces with Quansys to utilize Q-Plex™ technology, which will provide you reliable data while helping you save money, time, and sample. You'll be able to select up to 18 different biomarkers to be assayed simultaneously in the same well. Check out our Multiplex Solutions page to see what multiplex options are available for your research.Browse All Multiplex Solutions
Below are pre-validated analytes we can measure on multiplex capacity. Note that for singleplex ELISA service, we can run any kit, from our own ELISA catalog as well as from other companies.
Send us your list of analytes and we'll get back to you with a quote as soon as possible.
What samples are accepted, how to ship your samples, what happens to your samples
Validated sample types include serum, plasma, and urine. Cell culture supernatant, cell lysate, cell culture media, and/or tissue homogenates are also commonly used sample types that have shown positive results. Make sure to specify the type of sample and buffer constituents used for the samples on the form. Clearly label each vial using permanent marking and provide a list of the samples in the shipment. Labeling should exactly match the digital manifest.
The most common samples customers send us are:
Note: Due to the variety of methods and materials used in preparation, tissue homogenates and cell lysates have not been validated for this service. If you choose to send these samples types, please be aware that we are unable to guarantee satisfactory results.
Samples will be destroyed 3 months after the date of receipt. If requested at the time the order is placed, samples will be returned to the customer at the customer’s expense.Contact us for any questions
