New Practical Guide for Blockers
How to reduce interference in immunoassays

Meridian Life Science is a leading manufacturer of in vitro diagnostic reagents with over 35 years specific expertise in developing native and recombinant antigens, antibodies, and immunoassay blockers designed to enhance assay performance.

Meridian has just released a new practical guide that provides a detailed overview on how blockers can be used to reduce non-specific binding in immunoassays. Blockers are typically applied to ELISA and Lateral Flow-based assays, specifically paired monoclonal sandwich assays, competitive assays and antigen capture (IgG/IgM) assays. They work by removing interfering proteins that can lead to false results.

Download this Practical Guide to review Meridian’s top performing blockers which include:

·        TRU Block (HAMA Blocker)

·        Mouse IgG

·        IgM Diluent

·        Animal IgGs

·        IgG Absorbent

·        Solid-phase Blockers
