Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR - Biacore)


The Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) technique allows studying the interactions between a ligand and putative substates anchored onto a gold-chip, in a pM range of the bulk, with a very high sensibility (few pg/mm²).

According to the specific macromolecule stratified on the chip, it is possible to test mixed interactions such as protein to protein, protein to lipid, lipid to lipid and nucleic acid to protein. Applications span several fields like biochemistry, molecular biology, virology, toxicology, lipidomic as well in GMP.
