Surface Plasmon Resonance Service.

RapidSPR™ is our Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) service, which can determine the on-rate (Kon), off-rate (Koff), dissociation constant (Kd), and antibody affinity (KD) for antibody-antigen interactions. We offer detailed antibody kinetic profiling and SPR assay development, antibody screening SPR and epitope binning SPR. Our expertise is Antibody-Antigen Interaction & Binding Kinetics Analysis.

How SPR Analysis Works.

surface plasmon resonance workflow for spr based kinetics analysis

Our method for label free evaluation of antibody binding and biomolecular interaction relies on a Surface Plasmon Resonance analysis technology from Biacore and Nicoya. This nanotechnology-based SPR platform enables immobilization of binding partners in both orientations on the sensor chip with low levels of bulk shift, high sensitivity and low noise. Our Biacore platform allows for higher throughput SPR services with excellent results.

The Rapid SPR Service Advantage.

Unmatched SPR Accuracy and Reproducibility.

Kinetic analysis and validation is performed by our PhD experts, in triplicate, to meet the highest accuracy standards in the industry. We analyze residuals for validation of fit curve accuracy, and conduct advanced biophysical analysis. Kinetic parameters are reported with standard deviation of the triplicate set (and not just a standard error of a single run).

Surface Plasmon Resonance on Biacore 1k.

Our latest Surface Plasmon Resonance Biacore instrument is the Biacore 1k, which offers the perfect balance between high-throughput SPR analysis and versatility.

Complex SPR Assays and Difficult Samples.

We work with antibodies and antibody fragments (Fab, scFv), peptide antigens, and large complex protein antigens. With our expertise we can work with novel projects that don’t fit standard workflows.

Expert Analysis and Deeper Insights.

Intense analysis means optimization of binding conditions for every interaction are performed individually for increased accuracy and optimal signal/noise ratio. We provide deeper insights into each interaction with our full regeneration screen using different conditions (acidic, basic, chaotropic and high salt).

Applications of SPR Analysis

While there are many possible applications of surface plasmon resonance analysis, Rapid Novor is highly focused on antibody research and development:

SPR antibody binding affinity measurements

Off-rate ranking analysis

Cross-reactivity and specificity studies

Drug Discovery, antibody developability

Peptide library screening

Custom assay development

Success Stories.

“The sequences have allowed us to have an “insurance policy” of sorts for critical proteins used in our various products.”

David Ankrapp, Senior Research Scientist, Neogen Corporations

“We’re focused on coupling cytokines with a highly engineered VHVL of an antibody. So by sequencing the antibodies with Rapid Novor we are able to pull out the CDR to graft them into our platform and test in vitro and in vivo.”

Pavel Khrimian – Co-founder and CBO, Deka Biosciences
