Instructions for use

The Surface Densitiy calculator is a simple tool designed to help the researcher quickly determine the amount of ligand required to yield an Rmax of 100RU which is a good target for kinetic analysis.

It is important to note, that some ligand densities will be impossible to create due to the size of the ligand or analyte, steric hindrance, and surface binding capacity of the sensor chip itself.

To learn more about proper immobilization procedures, please contact your local Application Scientist or consider attending a Biacore Training Course.
