Human anti-KLH antibody analysis  
KLHanalysis.com is an initiative to serve the scientific and medical communities with quantitative human anti-KLH antibody measurements.


Anti-KLH ELISA method
We measure human anti-KLH antibodies in serum/plasma using our recently published ELISA method (Aantzen et al. 2012).
We offer quantitative analysis of the following KLH-specific human antibodies: IgGtotal, IgMtotal, IgAtotal and all four IgG-subclasses. Results are reported in mg/L.


Provided Service
Clinical trials: we provide 'fit-to-purpose' anti-KLH analysis of samples from (pre-)clinical trials.
Personnel involved in the study conduct work in the certified Department of Laboratory Medicine of the Radboud University Medical Centre.

Collaborative projects: we encourage the development of novel KLH-applications and offer anti-KLH measurements at a reduced fee if the focus of a project is on gaining new KLH-insights and will lead to joint publications.
