BitesizeBio.com has published a new article entitled “Explained: Sensor Chips for Surface Plasmon Resonance And Other Applications”, which sheds light on some of the important aspects of biosensor chips in SPR instruments. Bioscientists and other interested individuals can view the full article at the Bitesize Bio website.
The article includes several interesting pieces of information, one in particular is the new trends in chip design, including the integration of microfluidics with SPR chips. This should be of particular interest to bioscientists because it reduces the sample requirement and reaction time and could be used for point-of-care diagnostics..
One of the most important piece of information the article tries to convey and communicate is that different biosensor chips are best for different SPR assays. The best example of this is perhaps found in the following extract:
‘Sensor chip selection is a critical step in planning and running a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) experiment. Chip selection depends on the ligand or target that needs to be immobilized on the sensor chip, the analyte that is flowed over the target to study the binding, and the purpose of the experiment.’
In discussing the article’s creation, Dr. Amanda Welch, Editorial Manager at BitesizeBio.com said, This article will help our readers sort out the tricky issue of choosing the correct biosensor chip for their application. We hope that our readers will use this information to help them excel in their scientific research.”
The article is part of BitesizeBio.com’s Sponsored Education series. This particular article was published with the support of Reichert Technologies. Reichert Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) Systems provide robust, reliable precision instruments to investigate molecular interactions in real time without the need to label molecules.
BitesizeBio.com is used by individual scientists and companies to share their wisdom, know-how and solutions, to creating what has been called “The Missing Manual for Bioscientists”. The website is used, loved and depended-upon by hundreds of thousands of bioscientists each month.
