Optimized Microplates for Affinity Binding Assays

Ensure superb assay detection, every time

Porvair Sciences

The aim of binding assays is to measure interactions between two molecules, such as a protein binding another protein, a small molecule, or a nucleic acid. A new range of binding plates for labs seeking to uniformly and reproducibly capture biomolecules has been developed to help improve ELISA detection results.

Manufactured from high-quality crystal polystyrene, medium and high bind Krystal (TM) microplates are available in a choice of ANSI / SLAS standard (96-well and breakable 8-well strip) formats. Offering working volumes up to 320 µl, these automation-ready affinity binding plates incorporate a flat bottom to ensure superb assay detection every time. Designed for hydrophobic passive adsorption of lipid-rich large biomolecules and antigens, including viral antigens, medium binding Krystal plates offer a binding capacity of approximately 100 to 200 ng IgG/cm². Krystal high binding plates are optimized for passive adsorption of proteins with different grades of hydrophilicity. Offering a binding capacity of 400 to 500 ng IgG/cm², these high bind plates are ideal for immunoassay of glycoproteins and serum samples.
