- Roche Diagnostics e601 immunoanalyzer*
- Beckman Coulter UniCel DxH600 hematology analyzer*
- Siemens Immulite 1000 immunoanalyzer
We also perform more labor-intensive radioimmunoassays (RIAs) and plate-based ELISA testing on an as-needed basis for researchers. Most any commercially available RIA or ELISA kit can be used for analysis with our gamma counters and plate readers.
-ICN Biomedical 10/600 Plus gamma counter
-Titertek Plus gamma counter
-Bio-Tek ELx 800 ELISA plate reader
-Bio-Tek Powerwave 200 plate reader
Please note that at this time, we only have HPLC, not LC-MS/MS methods available. If your study requires the sensitivity and specificity of LC-MS/MS, please consider contacting the Metabolomics Core also at Washington University.
