surface plasmon resonance

Post by biology_06er » Fri Jun 12, 2009 11:34 am

Hi there,

With regard to the USE of surface plasmon resonance:

I understand of SPR works but if I was to describe what it is actually used for what would I say...stuff like steepness of graph shows how fast binding occurs/height corresponds to how much is bound/rate of dissociation?

Any help wld be great..

cheers,

This might help:
http://www.biacore.com/lifesciences/int ... index.html

I quote that page:
"Biacore systems characterize molecules in terms of their:
specificity of interaction
on and off rates (kinetics)
binding strength (affinity)"
