Coated Microtiter Microplates
Streptavidin coated wells of the BioBind microplate offer biotin mediated binding for small or hydrophilic molecules. This surface is ideal for e.g. peptides, oligonucleotides and DNA hybridization assays. The streptavidin-biotin bond is extremely strong and stable, and utilizing this system problems associated with steric hindrance during the binding procedure can be avoided.
BioBind - Streptavidin Coated Microplates
The biotin-streptavidin interaction is extremely strong, allowing simple and stable binding of DNA, peptides, polysaccharides and other biotin conjugates to the polystyrene well surface. This prevents the problems associated with steric hindrance and hydrophilic molecules.
Highly specific binding
Streptavidin coating is ideal for use with molecules that adsorb poorly to polystyrene or denature upon adsorption as it gives stable, highly specific binding with low background binding. BioBind Microtiter® microplates are available in black and white versions for assays utilizing luminescent or fluorescent markers.
