BiOptix Announces Low Cost Surface Plasmon Resonance Services for Colorado-Based Researchers

BiOptix formally announced a unique to the industry research collaboration with the Biophysics Shared Resource Core Facility at the University of Colorado Denver, Anschutz Medical Campus. The collaboration, which is supported by BiOptix, is offering low cost SPR services for Colorado-based researchers on the new BiOptix 404pi, a next-generation surface plasmon resonance platform designed and built in Colorado. The BiOptix 404pi provides label-free analysis of protein-protein kinetics as well as protein-small molecule interactions. The Biophysics Shared Resource Facility is a user facility owned and operated by the Program in Structural Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Colorado, Denver. Since opening in 2001, the group has developed resources to study biomolecular structure and thermodynamics through surface plasmon resonance, CD/ORD, ITC, DSC, fluorescence spectroscopy, and analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC). In addition, the group also offers mass spectroscopy, LC/MS/MS, HPLC and amino acid analysis services. Surface Plasmon Resonance is an advanced and highly sensitive optical technology that measures refractive index changes on a sensor chip's gold surface due to a change in mass that occurs during a binding event. This change can be used to monitor biological interactions such as the concentration of target molecules, kinetic rates and affinity constants. BiOptix has developed and patented a novel ultra-sensitive detection platform known as Enhanced Surface Plasmon resonance, or ESPR. Unlike traditional SPR, ESPR instrumentation from BiOptix enables the high sensitivity of SPR with the high stability and lower noise of common path interferometry.
