Ligand Immobilization in Protein Interaction Studies — An Unattended Amine Coupling Protocol with Automatic Coinjection Activation

Amine coupling is the most commonly adopted technique to bind proteins to biosensor chips. Because of the possibility of the amine coupling reagents reacting with each other, these have to be premixed just before the injection and injected independently. Here are some tips to automatically coinject these reagents.
