Hi everybody,

I have one simple question:

When you measure the antigen specific cellular immune response, as I understood, you have to quantify interferon gamma secreting epitope specific T-cell, so from what I gather here is you have two parameters to check; First, the production of Interferon gamma and next epitope specificity.. Does that mean you have to do ELISPOT twice?

Thanks in advance.
