The versatile high sensitivity system

  • Work with high sensitivity
  • Study binding in non-aqueous and aqueous samples
  • Reduce sample consumption
  • Perform the most advanced kinetic evaluation
  • Use proven technology

Biacore® X is a high sensitivity, semi-automated system for label free studies of biomolecular binding, in samples ranging from small molecules to crude extracts, lipid vesicles, viruses, bacteria and eucaryotic cells. Biacore X answers questions about the speed, strength and specificity of binding and determines the active concentrations of components. Results are evaluated using the most advanced evaluation software available. Before and after analysis a simulation program can be used to perform dry runs, to test experimental conditions or to verify experimental data, saving time and materials.

Biacore X is ideal for rapid, single runs and provides accurate sensorgrams smoothly and easily. After loading the sample, the system controls every critical step from sample injection to real time display. Biacore X is designed for laboratory environments where many users handle different types of sample in small numbers.

Work with high sensitivity

Under standard experimental conditions Biacore X can detect up to 70000 RU*, with a relative working range of 100 RU. However these values have been surpassed under fully optimized conditions. This high sensitivity allows the study of samples ranging from small molecules to large surface complexes.
