Thermo Fisher Scientific Provides Advanced Plate Options for Immunoassay Protocols

Thermo Scientific Immunoassay Plate Guide Enables Easy Selection by Application

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, has released a large portfolio of immunoassay surfaces to ensure that you get the best results from your assays. Passive binding surfaces are available to adsorb medium to large biomolecules in a range of orientations. For more specific binding, the Thermo Scientific Nunc CovaLink plates facilitate coupling of molecules bearing a free carboxyl or phosphate group, enabling peptides, haptens and DNA to be effectively coupled. In addition, the Nunc™ Immobilizer amino plate forms stable covalent bonds with the free amino acids or sulfhydryl groups of the biomolecule, eliminating the need for a blocking step. Affinity capture surfaces offer even more specific binding, with reduced variability in molecular orientation and improved signal to noise ratio.

In order to help you to select the best plate format to meet the demands of your application, the interactive and searchable Thermo Scientific immunoassay plate selector guide is a free resource, providing in-depth detail about the range of plates available and their applications.
