Protein-Based Diagnostics Primer

Protein-Based Diagnostics Primer is an extensive tutorial on protein-based diagnostics commonly used in disease detection in the research and clinic setting. This engaging class covers various tools, including immunoassays, multiplexed assays, lateral flow assays, and chromatography. Get ready to explore the science of ELISA and bead immunoassays, two quantitative diagnostics that measure multiple proteins simultaneously. This course also takes a closer look at Lateral Flow Assay (LFA) technology, a rapid detection diagnostic for target-specific biomarkers. To round out the agenda, this primer ends with an in-depth exploration of chromatography technologies used for protein separation, purification, and analysis. Grab your spot today to gain a deep understanding of these different protein-based diagnostics and their practical implications!

Section 1: Defining Protein-Based Diagnostics

Introduces protein-based diagnostics by explaining the importance of biomarkers in diagnostics. A biomarker is a measurable molecule indicative of disease.

Section 2: Antibody Technology

Explains the importance of antibody structure and how that structure contributes to its function. Antibody structure and function are exploited by the medical device industry for diagnostic use.

Section 3: Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assays (ELISA) Technology

Demonstrates the technology and how to interpret results of the widely-used screening test known as an ELISA.

Section 4: Bead Immunoassay Technology

Extends your ELISA knowledge by showing how ELISA technology can be adapted into more high throughput techniques, such as multiplexed bead assays.

Section 5: Lateral Flow Assay Technology

Explains how lateral flow immunochromatographic assay works, its applications and how to interpret its results.

Section 6: Chromatography Technology

Describes the applications of column chromatography in diagnostics and how to interpret its results.

  • How long do I have to complete an on-demand course?  You have one year from the date of purchase to complete the course. During that year, you may watch the class an unlimited number of times.
  • What happens if I don’t complete the course in one year?  There are no time extensions. If you want to complete the course, you must purchase it again.
  • How long are the on-demand classes?  Our longest course has a running time of 90 minutes. However, most have a running time of 45 minutes.  The running time is listed for each class on its registration page. The assessment at the end of each course takes between 10-20 minutes to complete.
  • Are there any downloadable class materials? No. All course slides and transcripts remain on your Biotech Primer dashboard, but they are always available for review.
  • What is the format of the on-demand classes?  The online class begins with the class objectives and the course itself and ends with a summary of what you learned. The course is a series of images and text accompanied by a professional voice-over and subtitles. Subtitles are available in 9 languages. The course ends with a quiz to assess your understanding.
  • Can I repeat the course?  You can repeat the course as often as you like within your one-year access.
  • How many times can I take the course quiz?  You have three chances to pass the quiz. A passing score is 75% or higher. You must pass the quiz to receive the class certificate. Your quiz score will be shown on your class certificate.
  • May I share a course I purchased with others?  Each course is to be taken by one individual. If you want to learn as a group, please contact us at for group pricing.
