Custom Assay Development Using Ultra-Sensitive Simoa Technology

The Accelerator Lab builds custom assay kits or specific kit components with sponsor’s proprietary antibodies and reagents for use in the sponsor’s own facility or in the Accelerator Lab, according to sponsor defined protocols.

Assay Development Timelines

  • Assay Feasibility Testing and Prototype Development
    -Identify antibody sources, perform screening and select best antibody pairs
  • Assay Optimization
    -Further improve assay performance prior to sample testing
  • Assay Validation
    -Comprised of a number of components to ensure that assay meets sponsor-defined requirements

“The Accelerator Lab, and Quanterix in particular,
are the pioneers in this ultra-sensitive technology
to measure not only neurofilament
but other biomarkers. ”
