Enhancing SPR Instrument Performance

Jul 14 2023

Biotech Fluidics AB has announced its partnership with BioNavis Oy, wherein it will provide essential microfluidic and degassing components for BioNavis Oy's Multi-Parametric Surface Plasmon Resonance (MP-SPR) instruments.

Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) has emerged as the primary technique for measuring molecular interactions in various fluidic environments, including serum, saliva, and organic solvents. Its label-free nature eliminates the need for labelling molecules, making it a highly advantageous method for evaluating affinity and kinetics of binding reactions. With the BioNavis Navi™ range of advanced Multi-Parametric Surface Plasmon Resonance (MP-SPR) instruments, researchers gain access to exceptional features and performance that enable in-depth studies of surface interactions and nanolayer characterisation.

The Navi MP-SPR instruments provided by BioNavis facilitate crucial scientific investigations, such as antibody characterisation, exploration of drug uptake pathways, controlled drug release strategies, precise measurements of small molecules, targeted delivery of nanoparticles, and even drug internalisation by living cells.

Jussi Tuppurainen, Technical Director of BioNavis commented: “The key part of our MP-SPR fluidics systems are IDEX port selection valves supplied by Biotech Fluidics. These high-quality valves contribute to precise handling of samples, allowing researchers to control the timing, volume, and flow rate of injected liquids. This precision is vital for achieving reproducible results and minimising variations in sample concentration. Additionally, the Degasser system supplied by Biotech Fluidics helps maintain sample integrity by preventing the introduction of air bubbles, which can disrupt measurements. Careful fluidic design and efficient degassing techniques eliminate bubbles and preserve the stability of the sample, ensuring reliable data.”

In conclusion, Jussi Tuppurainen said: “BioNavis has been a satisfied customer of Biotech Fluidics for many years. We highly recommend them not only for their top-quality products, but also because of the consistently professional and friendly customer service they provide.”
