HORIBA Scientific 

SPRi is a unique tool that allows you to measure in real time interactions between biomolecules in a label free manner. More importantly, unlike other affinity-based techniques, SPRi provides you with full kinetic profiles for hundreds of interactions simultaneously including the association (ka or on-rates), dissociation (kd or off-rates), and equilibrium (KD) constants.

This webinar will survey the diagnostic potential of direct and amplified-SPRi based biosensors, particularly for applications involving complex media, and compare it directly to conventional bio-affinity assays like ELISA. The following parameters will be reviewed and considered such as detection time, sensitivity, kinetic profile, cost per interaction, reproducibility and specificity.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Recognizing the differences in capabilities between SPRi and ELISA assays
  • Understanding the importance in measuring the on (ka) and off (kd)-rates along with affinity (KD) for a wide range of applications
  • Learning how the SPRi platform provides flexibility to scientists to engineer a wide range of assays for the detection of various analytes at real time simultaneously with high throughput
  • Discovering how the configuration of SPRi systems is ideal for analyte analysis in complex media

Who Should Attend?

  • Academic and industrial researchers working with and developing bioassays for a wide range of analytes
  • Scientists specializing or have expertise in the following fields: biomedical and clinical science, proteomics, genomics, biochemistry, nanotechnology and biophysics
