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.
