Looking for an ELISA sample testing service that saves time, uses minimal sample volumes and generates robust data? Look no further. Research grade CRO service, focusing on academic research and publishing.
Boster joins force with QuansysBio to give the ultimate multiplex offer
Expertise--Since 1993, Boster has been manufacturing antibodies for ELISA kits for scientists around the world. Our founder developed Picokine®, a proprietary high sensitivity sandwich ELISA platform, in the early 2000s. With a focus on making antibodies that react to proteins in their native forms, Boster has validated thousands of antibodies that can work in sandwich ELISA.
Innovation--Working with QuansysBio's innovative Q-Plex® technology, we bring you the multiplex assay service with significant cost savings compared to other multiplex solutions on the market. As a CRO service, you can avoid upfront investment in instrument or personnel, allowing you to fast forward your discovery process before you commit to an in-house SOP with our multiplex system--which also costs less than half compared to other multiplex solutions such as Luminex and MSD.

Multiplex ELISA Service Details
Available Validated Analytes
Common Sample Types
in a nutshell: you send us the samples, we will ELISA assay them for analytes of your choice in triplicates, and send you the results data
Pre-made panel or custom assay?
we have pre-made panels and can also make custom panels for you
If you are looking to test for common panels of analytes, we have a wide selection of popular pre-made panels. You can check the list of them in the multiplex ELISA kits The minimum sample requirement is 8 samples. If you do not find a panel that fits exactly what you need, we can print a custom panel for you as long as we have the validated antibody pairs for it. For the analytes available please check the Available Validated Analytes section below. The minimum sample requirement for custom printed assay is 16 samples.
Pricing: for a limited time, we are offering $150 per sample for unlimited number of multiplex analytes. For bulk pricing please contact us at [email protected] for quote.
If you want to develop new assays for unique analytes that are not in our validated analytes lists, please contact us for more details.
Sample Testing Requirements
Sample Types - The samples can be serum, plasma, cell
culture supernatant, cell lysate, cell culture media,
and/or tissue homogenates. Make sure to specify the type
of sample and buffer constituents used for the samples when you contact us. Clearly label each vial using permanent marking
and provide a list of the samples in the shipment. The
labeling should exactly match the digital manifest.
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 we are
unable to guarantee satisfactory results.
Sample Volume - It is optimal for at least 200
μl of each sample to be sent per array. Based on
your request, an additional volume may be needed. This
volume allows for triplicate testing of
Minimum Number of Samples - 8 samples
minimum if testing on a retail kit. 16 samples minimum if
testing a custom panel. Please contact Boster for
price quotes if requesting sample testing for less than
the minimums listed.
Sample should be shipped overnight, Monday through
Thursday, frozen with 3-5 lbs dry ice-
Protect the samples from damage by putting them in a box or
wrapping with bubble wrap, so the samples are not loose among the dry ice as
this will damage the vials and labeling.
For research use only. Not intended for diagnostic
Delivery of Results:
Turnaround Time - A completed report of the samples will
be emailed to the customer. Typical turnaround times range
from 5 to 10 business days based on the assays requested. The
quote provided to the customer will give a firm estimate of
the time to receive data.
Reporting Results - All results will be reported in a
Microsoft Excel spreadsheet format. The spreadsheet will
contain raw data, charts, and calculated concentrations
derived from regression models from each of the samples
tested. A written report explaining the technology is also
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
available validated analytes
We can test unlimited number of analytes for each sample (so, 100? YES!). If you have more than 18 analytes, please send your request to [email protected] to see if we are able to assist.
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 we are unable to guarantee satisfactory results.
