Tutorials, Workshops & Seminars

JPT holds tutorials, workshops and seminars for researchers that use or plan to use peptide microarrays (Catalog RepliTope™ or custom PepStar™ peptide microarrays or Enzyme Substrate Microarrays), or PepMix™ peptide pools and PepTrack™ peptide libraries for antigen-specific T-cell stimulation. We aim to provide thorough insights into the microarray technology, how to use peptide microarrays and in data evaluation, as well in the the ELISpot technique. Have a look below for further details!

Seminars: Improve Your ELISpot Assay

The ELISpot Resource Group holds free Elispot seminars all over the world with the aim to inform about the Elispot technique, new developments as well as quality assurance and controls.

For current dates please have a look at our News Page or subscribe to our newsletter (
If you would like to have a seminar setup at your institution, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Topics include:
Improved performance of ELISpot assays
New ELISpot plates
Antibody choices and combinations
Fluorospot for dual and triple cytokine/antibody secretion patterns
Peptide and peptide pool formats, peptide stability and storage
Freezing and test media
Automated cell counting and viability/apoptosis assessment
Sample preparation options
