history of ELISA - FROM WHERE THE NAME ELISA CAME (May/04/2006 )
I want to know about origin of word ELISA. why it is ENZYME LINKED IMMONOSORBANT ASSAY. in place of sorbant it can be adsorbant. is it.
Enzyme Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay.
May be the person invented this assay...... has a girlfriend's name Elisa..... may be
the name ELISA indicates the description of the assay in which HRP enzyme is linked to antibody. coming sorbant part
SARBENT means - To take up and hold, as by absorption or adsorption. hence, they have not used absorption or adsorption rather SORBENT.
made any sense?
thanx a lot.
thank u very much
Beethoven : fur Elisa. 300 years ago
just to be nitpicking:
"für Elise" (or "pour Elise"), composed 1810 (roughly 200 years ago), but well, Beethoven is correct!
