Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0955544A1] A process for detecting primary cell signals in human or mammal cell communication in vitro, comprises: (a) incubating the cells with polymer beads with diameter 5-100 mu m, which have been coated with at least one antibody, which is specific for these primary signals, under physiological conditions; (b) exposing the cells to a stimulating factor, which causes the cells to release their primary signals, which then bind to the specific antibodies; and (c) detecting the bound primary signals using labelled antibodies.
