Microbix can provide standard controls for respiratory antigen detection assays. We are expanding this line to offer proficiency panels used for quality control or to evaluate the performance of commercial diagnostic devices. Please contact us for details.

Other Information

Quality Assurance
Each antigen lot is tested for potency using ELISA, and compared to a reference antigen. This ensures the amount of viral protein in each batch is consistent. The total protein concentration reported includes both viral and non-viral proteins, with the ratio dependent on the purity of the antigen.

Inactivation and Safety
Each lot of antigen is inactivated using gamma radiation and this inactivation verified using a sensitive tissue culture based infectivity assay.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can your ELISA titre be converted to a count of viral particles?

The short answer is no; ELISA measures levels of specific antigens and epitopes, and there is no correlation between this and a measure of infectious particles like TCID50 or plaque assay.

However, we do measure the infectious titre of some lots prior to inactivation so a TCID50 titre is available on some products. Please inquire if this is something of interest to you.
