Expand your antibody detection repertoire

28 August 2018

Testing for autoantibodies has never been more important. Evidence suggesting the potential long-term detrimental impact of autoantibodies has been discussed in numerous published scientific papers, many of which are now all available for download from VH Bio.

LABScreen Autoantibody Antibody Detection


  • Characterise and monitor autoantibody targets with LABScreen Single Antigen Bead technology
  • Multiplexing capability – simultaneously detect up to 39 targets
  • Familiar workflow: minimal training required
  • Compatible with LABScan 100/200 and LABScan3D
  • Test up to 96 samples in under 4 hours
  • Analyse results with Fusion Research software

The LABScreen Autoantibody assays now allow you to characterise and monitor a broad range of autoantibody targets in human sera.

Coverage by Researched Organs


Three separate groups of autoantibody targets have been developed by One Lambda based on evidence presented and discussed in a variety of scientific papers.
