Amyloid Platform

With the novel Aβ detection system (MSD Sector Imager 2400) we detect electrochemiluminescence of the three major Aβ species (Aβ38, Aβ40 and Aβ42) from cultured cells and mouse brain.

Advantages of the Sector Imager are: High sensitivity, broad dynamic range and flexibility (different antibody combinations)

This platform has a full time technician (Brigitte Nuscher) and is of essential importance for all projects which investigate Aβ generation from cells and animal tissues.
