The use of magnetic beads as the solid phase for ELISAs offers several advantages over traditional direct coupling techniques, including shorter incubation times and improved sensitivity. These benefits have made magnetic bead-based technologies the gold standard for immunodiagnostic assays, as well as providing a versatile toolbox for researchers in academia and industry.

Life Technologies’ Dynal division has been at the forefront of magnetic bead technology for over 20 years, and the Company’s range of Dynabeads is used in hundreds of laboratories around the world. Development of the Dynabeads range is carried out at Life Technologies’ dedicated Dynal facility in Oslo, Norway, allowing the Company to offer specialist support and services to customers, including customized development projects.
