IMS Detection Kit

One of the most difficult challenges in the analysis of microbiological samples is to separate the organism of interest from a sample that is high in background debris. Immunomagnetic separation (IMS) is one technique that has been developed to accomplish this in a rapid and reliable way. This laboratory tool can efficiently isolate cells out of body fluid or cultured cells. It can also be used as a method of quantifying the pathogenicity of food, blood or feces.

Principle:

IMS is based on antibody antigen reactions. Specific antibodies against to the desired target are linked to the beads either directly or indirectly, using beads precoated with a secondary antibody that has specificity for the primary antibody. Coated beads added to a sample suspension in a tube will bind to the target molecule. The beads-target complexes can be separated from the environment to the side of the tube using a strong magnet and recovered or removed depending on the object of the method.

Work-flow:


Separate 100cfu target bacteria from 106cfu/ml background debris. False positive <3%,false negative: 0
