I failed to find a comparison, does anyone know which ELISA detection method is more sensitive of these two: ECL, TMB?

Many thanks!


In general, ECL is more sensitive than TMB for ELISA detection. The minimum detection limit of TMB is 60pg/mL and 20pg/mL for ultra TMB [1], whereas the detection limit of ECL can be as low as about 1.7pg/mL [2].
