Porvair Sciences’ new medium and high bind Krystal microplates have been designed to set a new standard for uniform and reproducible capture of a wide range of biomolecules ready for affinity binding assays such as ELISAs.
Manufactured from high-quality crystal polystyrene, these new automation-ready plates are available in a choice of ANSI/SLAS standard (96-well and breakable 8-well strip) formats. Offering working volumes up to 320 µl the new Krystal 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 plates offer a binding capacity of approximately 100 to 200 ng IgG/cm².
The high binding plates are optimised 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.
Krzysztof Kielmann at Porvair Sciences comments that, “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. We have developed our latest range of Krystal binding plates for laboratories seeking to uniformly and reproducibly capture biomolecules, thereby enabling them to improve their assay detection results.”
