The History of ELISA Kits

ELISA Kits| RapidTest.comToday, the medical laboratory community has the convenience of using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay or ELISA kits for a variety of medical tests, but this is a relatively recent development. Before ELISA, the only option for running these tests was using RIA method (radioactive immunoassays). Fortunately, Laboratories now have access to these kits and can order them through Diagnostic Automation / Cortez Diagnostics, Inc.

Naturally, radioactive tests can be harmful, so scientists worked hard to seek out a safer option. In 1971, Swedish scientists Peter Perlmann and Eva Engvall invented the ELISA process at Stockholm University. The initial method involved using chromogenic reagents and substrates to show if the results were positive or negative. Over the years, the tests have developed further and have begun using fluorogenic, chemiluminescent, and quantitative PCR reagents to obtain more accurate results. These tests are generally highly sensitive and work just as well as radioactive tests.
