Consumables for MP-SPR Navi™ instruments

Sensor slides

Sensor slides, or SPR chips, are the key elements of a MP-SPR experiment. While traditional SPR focuses on dextran or gold surfaces, MP-SPR offers freedom of surfaces that experiments can be performed on.

Our sensor slides are specific to our MP-SPR Navi™ instrument family. All sensor slides are 12x20 mm and fit into the MP-SPR Navi™ sensor holder.

Many of MP-SPR Navi™ users also prepare their own coatings such as PS, PET, PP, cellulose, carbon nanotubes (CNT) and others. Suitable methods for preparation of your own coatings for MP-SPR include: spin-coating, atomic layer deposition (ALD), chemical vapor deposition (CVD), sol-gel, Langmuir-Blodgett (LB), electrodeposition, molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and others. Ideal layer thickness can be modelled beforehand.


Sensor categories

There are three different sensor categories:

Metal sensors, where the metal coating itself is plasmonic: Au, Cu, Al, Ag, Pt, Rh MP-SPR_layers_sensor_metal.png
Inorganic sensors, where there is a metal coating under an inorganic coating: SiO2, Al2O3, TiO2, ITO MP-SPR_layers_sensor_inorganic.png
Functionalized sensors, where there is a biochemical functionalization on gold coating: CMD-3D, CMD-2D, biotin, avidin, protein A, protein G MP-SPR_layers_sensor_functionalized.png
