Expect More From ELISA

When comparing the difference between traditional ELISAS and Multiplex ELISAs, there are several criteria to evaluate such as time, availability of sample, testing costs, learning curve and market availability. The following table shows the differences between the two technologies and the value given by adopting multiplex technologies.
