ELISA is an acronym for the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay—a widely used test to screen patients for allergies or certain diseases. In this interactive demonstration, you will guide your students through a realistic simulation of the steps involved in this important medical diagnostic test. Students will learn about how antigens are bound to a support material and will observe interactions of simulated primary and secondary antibodies with the antigen, and each other, to produce positive color tests. A great way to see how basic biology principles are applied for medical purposes! Lab activity is a chemical simulation—kit contains no actual blood, blood products, or any possible infectious agents. Includes enough materials to complete the demonstration as written seven times. A hot plate or microwave is required to prepare the agar for the demonstration but is not provided.
