Cell Technology was founded in 1998 to provide research solutions for the academic, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
Our focus is to develop unique assays that allow researchers to study cellular functions using cell-permeable reagents.
This process allows in situ detection of cell for tissue specific events while maintaining morphology and architecture.
Our first release was a line of products that detect apoptotic cells through the measurement of active caspases and loss of mitochondrial membrane potential. We have expanded our catalog with highly-specific caspase detection products, as well as products for the detection of cathepsin and ELISA products. We constantly strive to bring you unique, high-technology reagents through our commitment to developing our product line.
More on ELISA: Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), detects the presence of an antibody or an antigen in a sample. The ELISA has been used as a diagnostic tool in medicine and plant pathology, as well as quality-control check in various industries. In the simplest of terms, in ELISA, an unknown amount of antigen becomes fixed to a surface, and then a specific antibody is applied over the surface so that it can bind to the antigen. The antibody is linked to an enzyme, and in the final step a substance is added that the enzyme can convert to some detectable signal, such as color change in a chemical substrate
