Porvair Sciences new medium and high bind Krystal microplates are manufactured from high-quality crystal polystyrene. The new automation-ready plates are available in a choice of ANSI/SLAS standard (96-well and breakable eight-well strip) formats. the new Krystal binding plates offer working volumes up to 320 µl and incorporate a flat bottom to improve assay detection.

Designed for hydrophobic passive adsorption of lipid-rich large biomolecules and antigens, including viral antigens, medium-binding Krystal plates offer a binding capacity of approximately 100 to 200 ng IgG/cm².

Krystal high-binding plates are optimized for passive adsorption of proteins with different grades of hydrophilicity. Offering a binding capacity of 400 to 500 ng IgG/cm² these high bind plates are ideal for immunoassay of glycoproteins and serum samples.

“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,” says Krzysztof Kielmann, microplates product manager at Porvair Sciences. “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.”
