Porvair Sciences’ medium and high bind Krystal microplates are designed to set the 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, the automation-ready plates are available in a choice of ANSI/SLAS standard (96-well and breakable eight-well strip) formats. Offering working volumes up to 320 µl, they incorporate a flat bottom to ensure superb assay detection.
The medium binding plates are designed for hydrophobic passive adsorption of lipid-rich large biomolecules and antigens, including viral antigens and feature a binding capacity of approximately 100 to 200 ng IgG/cm².
Krystal high binding plates are optimised for passive adsorption of proteins with different grades of hydrophilicity. With a binding capacity of 400 to 500 ng IgG/cm², they are suitable for immunoassay of glycoproteins and serum samples.
Krzysztof Kielmann, Microplates Product Manager at Porvair Sciences, said: “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 new range of Krystal binding plates for labs seeking to uniformly and reproducibly capture biomolecules thereby enabling them to improve their assay detection results”.
