This webinar will focus on how Reichert's Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) systems can generate additional valuable information that is not attainable on other commercial SPR platforms. SPR has traditionally been used as a research tool to characterize biomolecular interactions including the kinetics, affinity, and thermodynamics of the molecules under study. Reichert SPR systems can routinely carry out these traditional applications but have the added capability to interface with other analytical techniques and instruments. A recent example is that we have developed a system called SPR-PLUS that employs a gradient pump that can accelerate the discovery process by changing experimental variables such pH or buffer concentration in one experiment. Furthermore, this SPR-PLUS system can also easily combine a small chromatography column in series, so that additional separations before or after the initial binding experiment can be carried out in a single setup. Lastly, Reichert's open architecture creates the ability to combine SPR with other techniques such as Mass Spectrometry (MS) or Electrochemistry (Echem) so users can discover more about what is binding (MS) and also how changing potentials affects binding (Echem) to name a few potential applications.
