Weighing up the advantages and disadvantages of multiplex assays

Weighing up the advantages and disadvantages of multiplex assaysWith the need to increase analytical throughput in biotherapeutic R&D and cell and gene therapy, multiplexing assays can appear to be an obvious approach. There are certainly potential advantages, but also disadvantages and considerable challenges involved in multiplexing immunoassays – assays must be carefully matched to function in the same buffer and in the same analytical range. An alternative approach – to miniaturize singleplex ELISAs and run them in parallel – may be even more attractive.
