We look after an ELISPOT classic reader that is available for general Dunn School use in the Ground Floor EPA Research building instrument room 311.10.27. This instrument enables you to rapidly image a 96 or 384 well plate (monochrome, visible light), and the built in software automatically counts the number of “dots” in each well. Classically, this is used to enumerate the number of cells in a well that secrete a particular cytokine (e.g. gamma interferon), but can be used for any other application where such quantification is needed. We use it to count foci of virus-infected cells, revealed by immunostaining.
