Thanks to Block Scientific, I was able to procure the re-certified Bayer DCA 2000+ without hassles and get the lab back in operation. The
device works perfectly and I look forward to doing more business with Block Scientific.

For the qualitative determination of serum antibodies in humans, primarily IgG, to Schistosoma spp. using the ELISA technique.
During the first incubation, the antibodies in the patients’ serum bind to the antigens in the test well. The next incubation allows the enzyme complex to bind to the antigen-antibody complex. After a few washings to remove unbound enzymes, a substrate is added that develops a blue color in the presence of the enzyme complex and peroxide. The stop solution ends the reaction, turning the blue assay color to yellow.
