Kaivogen streptavidin coated plates are suitable for a wide range of applications, like immuno or nucleic acid hybridization assays. The plates are available in several different 96-well formats: 12 & 8 well strips, solid plates or breakable strips enabling use of different instrumentation and assay configurations. Also other plate formats are available on request. All the plates have high affinity towards biotin and are stable over a wide range of pH, detergent concentration and ionic strength. The available plate families differ regarding binding capacity, background, streptavidin leaching and cost. For assays suffering from streptavidin leaching we recommend the UniverSA96 plates and for ELISA- type measurements the KaiSA96 plates.
Anti-mouse coated plates are coated with polyclonal rabbit anti-mouse IgG antibodies. Currently the plates are available in 12-strip format, but other plate formats are available on request.
Assay components and services for TRF, ELISA or Upcon from Kaivogen
Kaivogen´s KaiSA96 streptavidin coated microplates are used routinely in ELISA kits. Kaivogen offers streptavidin-coated microplates also in several other 96-well formats and with different properties giving you the option to select the best alternative for your TRF, ELISA or Upcon application. In addition to streptavidin plates, Kaivogen also offers anti-mouse coated microplates as a catalogue item. If your assay demands a special surface for optimal performance, Kaivogen runs a custom coating service to fulfil your needs.
For TRF applications, Kaivogen provides a labelling service for antibodies and other proteins. The proteins can be labelled with several different chelates having different properties according to your needs. Also reporter molecules suitable for ELISA are available through our custom labelling service, as well as proteins labelled with traditional fluorescent dyes or biotin. Kaivogen also offers controlled production facilities for preparation of buffers and other laboratory liquids. For those lanthanide chelates that are not intrinsically fluorescent, Kaivogen provides Europium Fluorescence Intesifier solution (EFI) used for the necessary signal intensification step.
Upcon® is a comprehensive concept built around a novel label technology known as photon upconversion. In this technology, upconverting nanoparticles (UCNPs) convert near-infrared (NIR) radiation to visible light via a unique process that enables the photoluminescence to be measured entirely free of autofluorescence and scattered excitation light. This enables high-sensitivity applications and also simplifies the design of the reader. The Upcon® system can be used in diagnostics and bioanalytics, for example, in bioaffinity assays, lateral flow tests and sensors. Upcon® upconverting nanoparticle system is a joint venture by two life science companies operating in Turku, Finland. The reader has been developed by Labrox Oy and the nanoparticles by Kaivogen Oy.
