Promising new tool to measure antibodies against malaria: Quantitative suspension array assays could simplify sero-epidemiological studies and vaccine development

Antibodies against multiple Plasmodium falciparum proteins (or antigens) can be measured using a simple, accurate and reproducible assay that requires very small amounts of blood. Researchers report the development and optimization of several 'quantitative suspension array' assays (qSAT) that could help assess natural and vaccine-induced responses to malaria and other parasites.
