Product Application - Functional Assay

Functional assays or bioassays refer to in vitro assays using cell culture to determine the downstream effects of blocking or neutralizing a specific protein or signaling pathway. Downstream effects typically include cellular proliferation, cytokine secretion, induction of killing, antiviral activity, degranulation, cytotoxicity, chemotaxis, and promotion of colony formation. in vitro functional assays can provide critical information about the function of a specific protein in a highly controlled biological system as well as provide a means to test the biological activity of a given antibody. Bio X Cell offers many antibodies that are reported for use in functional assays. For antibody-specific assay details we have compiled an up-to-date list of references for each antibody. These can be found on the individual product pages.
