BioNavis: Excellence in Surface Plasmon Resonance

SPR Navi™ instruments have been developed for surface analysis in a number of key application areas, expanding the use of SPR from biomolecular interactions to new applications such as material characterization and sensor development. 

 

MP-SPR: The new generation of SPR

SPR Navi™ represents a generation shift in surface plasmon resonance (SPR) technology. The new Multi-Parametric SPR solves some of the previously open-ended questions and enables measurements on a number of samples, surfaces and conditions, traditional SPR cannot.

SPR Navi™: The only MP-SPR instruments on the market!

  • Real-time molecular interactions (kinetics, on-/off-rates, adsorption, desorption, affinity, concentration, adhesion
  • Physical properties (thickness, swelling, adsorbed mass) 
  • Optical properties (complex refractive index) 
  • Electrochemical behavior

on polymers, metals, alloys, ceramics, organic layers (incl. graphene, SiO2, TiO2, cell layers, Pt, Cu, cellulose, PET, PP, nanoparticles,..)
ranging from a few Ångströms to a few microns in thickness and
interacting with samples in gas and liquid environment.

Key Questions that SPR Navi™ can answer

Life Sciences

  • What is the affinity and on- and off-rates for molecule X interacting with protein Y?
  • How does this surface/analyte interaction change when the electrical potential is changed? 

Material Science

  • How does this polyelectrolyte multilayer grow?
  • How thick is the monolayer and what is the refractive index?
  • What is the thickness and refractive index of the nanolayers in the nanolaminate?

Sensor Development

  • Is the biosensor that I have designed working better than the previous one?
  • How does the surface of my biosensor interact with sample X?

Testimonials

"It is essential for us to decouple the contribution of hydration and bound water for quantification of adsorbed mass, layer thickness, etc."

Prof. Orlando Rojas
NCSU, USA and Aalto University, Finland

"With MP-SPR, we are able to observe and quantify the differences in cell uptake and kinetics of nanoparticles in dependence with the surface characteristics of the nanoparticle and their targeting."

Academy Research Fellow,
Tapani Viitala
University of Helsinki, Finland 

"MP-SPR is flexible instrument that allows us to connect the power of traditional separation techniques, such as LC, with the quantification of interactions by SPR."

Dr. Jeroen Kool
VU Amsterdam, The Netherlands 

"We use MP-SPR to quantify conformation changes of proteins at the surface under different environmental conditions."

Prof. Barbara Jachimska
Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland 

"We appreciate the versatility of the MP-SPR and the great technical support. Our multi-disciplinary research stretches from DNA-technology to stimulus-responsive polymers, and the MP-SPR has become a reliable and appreciated key instrument in our daily work."

Prof. Thomas Schäfer
Polymat UPV/EHU, Spain
