Biacore X100 - Surface Plasmon Resonance


Laboratory equipment. Biacore X100 - Surface Plasmon Resonance. Photo.

The Biacore X100 instrument is open for external users to hire after completed course or we can provide a full service.

The Biacore X100 uses the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) technique to monitor molecular interactions in real time. The procedure is as follows; one of the interacting molecules (the ligand) is attached to a surface of a sensor chip, and the other interacting molecule (analyte) is injected and will flow over the sensor chip. If any binding occurs between the ligand and the analyte, the refractive index will change at the sensor surface, that is proportional to the change in mass concentration, and association and dissociation rates of the interaction may be determined.
