Real-time monitoring of antibody binding by parallel MP-SPR, potentiometry and impedance spectroscopy

Multi-Parametric Surface Plasmon Resonance (MP-SPR) equipped with an electrochemistry (EC) flow-cell was used to run potentiometric and impedance measurements in parallel with the MP-SPR measurement. The binding reaction of anti-methotrexate to immobilized small molecule weight drug methotrexate (MTX) was followed by MP-SPR and by potentiometry and Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS). Methotrexate binding produced a relatively large impedance response and antibody molecules a small response, whereas potentiometry values stayed equal during interactions. The strong binding of antibody molecules was observed in the MP-SPR response.
