Test Strip Enzyme Immunoassay

  • David J. Litman


Enzyme immunoassays (EIA) have become one of the most widely disseminated and broadly applied group of analytical techniques for biochemical analysis. Laboratory based EIA methods have found important applications in the areas of clinical chemistry, veterinary medicine, microbiology, and human fertility. The great versatility of these methods, for both the identification and quantitation of clinically relevant antigens, is illustrated by example throughout this volume and is largely attributable to the stability and amplification power of enzyme labels.
