The Biacore platform monitors molecular interactions in real time by using a non-invasive label-free technology. This technology reacts to changes in the concentration of molecules at the sensor surface as molecules bind to or detach from the surface.
Biacore’s detection principle is based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR) that is sensitive to changes in refractive index within about 150 nm from the sensor surface. To study the interaction between two binding partners, one partner is attached to the surface and the other is passed over the surface in a continuous flow of sample solution. The SPR response is directly proportional to the change in mass concentration close to the surface.
Biacore is used by BioAgilytix in immunogenicity studies to analyze and characterize anti-drug antibodies (ADAs) and molecular interactions related kinetics, specificity, and concentration. It is also leveraged in the monitoring and characterization of ADAs in pre-clinical and clinical assay development, as well as for isotyping.
The SPR (surface plasmon resonance) on a Biacore is used for the characterization of ADAs and the measurement of therapeutic monoclonal antibodies to Fc-gamma receptors. In addition, membrane proteins such as the interaction of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) with their ligands can be studied with Biacore.
Platform In Action:
Learn why the European Immunogenicity Platform (EIP) believes that a multidisciplinary approach is warranted to better understand and minimize drug immunogenicity.
From defining potential drug targets and diagnostic markers to detecting and characterizing ADAs in immunogenicity studies, the BioAgilytix team has extensive first-hand experience using Biacore to perform efficient, cost-effective, high-precision bioanalysis.
We will tailor the way we perform immunogenicity and ADA analysis with Biacore based on both the unique specificity and regulatory requirements of your project.
