A Novel Biotinylated Ligand-Capture Method with Surface Regeneration Capability for Label-Free Biomolecular Interaction Analysis
Ligand-capture approaches using biotin as an affinity tag are often utilized in biomolecular interaction analyses with surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensors. However, a drawback to using biotin is that it makes surface regeneration of SPR sensor chips difficult. Here is a strategy that facilitates surface regeneration when using biotinylated ligand-capture approaches to SPR analysis.
