SPR (Surface Plasmon Resonance)


Welcome to the Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) lab at the Beckman Institute. This lab houses a Bruker “Sierra SPR-32” high-throughput biosensor.  The SPR-32 allows label-free analysis of molecular interactions and can be used to measure the affinity, kinetics or thermodynamics of binding between biological and/or synthetic molecules.

The Beckman SPR lab is fully equipped with supporting equipment, stocks commonly used reagents and SPR sensors, and provides user support and training.
