A competitive ELISA works on the same principle but in this case the test serum and the competing antibody (MAb or polyclonal serum specific for the antigen) are added as a mixture to the wells on the plate. They compete for binding sites on the antigen. In the simplest versions of the test the competing antibody is conjugated to a marker enzyme (



). The plate is then washed and substrate added in the normal way. The percentage of inhibition of colour formation is calculated.
