Immobilized Antibody Sequencing

Service Details


Immobilized antibody systems are the key to develop efficient diagnostics and separations tools. In immunoassays (IAs), immobilized antibodies are preferred over their free counterpart to curtail the number of detection steps and time, as well as to improve high detection sensitivity and reproducibility. Ideally, the immobilized antibody, an antibody with immobilized material formed by linking the antibody to the surface of the stationary phase, should maintain its natural conformation, and there is no space for antigen binding between adjacent antibody molecules with the Fc fragment facing the surface of the solid phase, and the Fab fragment exposed to the liquid phase. However, the binding of antibodies on the carrier may have different spatial curves, and some immobilized antibodies may inactivate or denature due to random orientations that caused by space effects during immobilization, thereb losing antigen-binding activity. Therefor, sequencing of immobilized antibodies is particularly important in order to detect whether changes in protein conformation are caused during the immobilization of antibodies.
