About the book

An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, also called ELISA or EIA, is a test that detects and measures antigen and/or antibodies in the given sample. There are many established applications of ELISA in clinical medicine, including diagnostic assays measuring human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), estrogen, hepatitis B antigen, and various antibodies, to name but a few.

The book is intended to include all chapters related to ELISA, its applications in various fields of science and research. As mentioned above, ELISA is a robust test that has good sensitivity and specificity so it is very helpful in the detection and confirmation of diseases. There are many forms and types of tests available. With the use of monoclonal antibodies in the formation of ELISA kits, now it is widely used and has much better detection. So the book is intended to highlight its uses, possible application as well as the benefits of tests for the laboratory. It is also intended to give future perspectives for the use of ELISA.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
