Our scientific objective is to provide the faculty, staff and students on our campus with the latest technology for the quantitative study of binding reactions in real time, specifically with an approach that is versatile, highly sensitive, and “user
friendly”, with molecules that are label-free.
The instruments we use for this purpose are from Biacore® (GE Healthcare) – the T200 and 3000.
Biacore® instrumentation is available for your use in the Biosensor Core Facility maintained by the Department of Physiology, University of Maryland School of Medicine.
Biacore® sensor technology provides a versatile, highly sensitive, easy-to-use, and quantitative approach to study the kinetics and affinity of binding interactions under exquisitely controlled conditions.
