Porvair Sciences new medium and high bind Krystal microplates set a new standard for uniform and reproducible capture of a wide range of biomolecules ready for affinity binding assays such as ELISA's.

Manufactured from high-quality crystal polystyrene - these new automation-ready plates are available in a choice of ANSI / SLAS standard (96-well and breakable 8-well strip) formats. Offering working volumes up to 320 µl the new Krystal binding plates incorporate a flat bottom to ensure superb assay detection every time.

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 optimised 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.

Krzysztof Kielmann, Microplates Product Manager at Porvair Sciences commented “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. 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”.
