The Roche ELISA assays can be performed in any laboratory without specialized training. Additionally, they are available in an all-inclusive kit format with validated reagents, so all components necessary are accessible and ready to use. This creates a simpler, more reliable approach than with many homebrew assays, which may be subject to reagent lot-to-lot variability, potentially impacting accuracy of the final result.
