Parallex BioAssays and axiVEND Announce a Distribution Agreement for The Americas
ORLANDO, Fla., July 31, 2019 / - / -- The SnapChip is a simple approach to multiplexing that eliminates non-specific cross reactivity readouts during the detection step of a sandwich ELISA. Eliminating the cross-reaction problem of multiplex ELISAs can bring about significant time savings in the early development of a multiplex test. The platform is suitable to reliably assess a number of proteins without the added noise from non-selective detection reagents.
