What would happen if serum were omitted from the ELISA, but all other steps remained the same and were performed properly?
Anti-human Ig-conjugate would bind non-specifically to the ELISA plate.
Incorrect.The anti-human Ig conjugate is specific for human Ig and has very little nonspecific binding activity.
