Wheat-Germ Coated Plates

Wheat Germ Coated Plates offered in different formats are used for their specific affinity to molecules containing N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residue. 

The surface of Wheat Germ Coated Plates is used in assay for binding in a specific way the carbohydrate fraction of glycoproteins, enzymes and cell membranes.

Wheat Germ Lectin is a Hemagglutinin obtained from the common wheat germ Triticum Vulgaris and, as for the other lectins, it is well known that it is used extensively for the isolation of glyco-conjugates and glycoproteins with specific carbohydrate structures.

Wheat Germ Coated 96 Well Plates are suitable for:

  • studies of surfaces of normal and transformed cells
  • glycoprotein purification including membrane glycoproteins
  • studies of cell surface changes during development and the cell cycle

Biomat Wheat Germ Coated 96 Well Plates are made in Transparent, White and Black Polystyrene and can be used for quantitative and qualitative immunoassays like  ELISA, Chemiluminescent (CLIA) , Luminescence (LIA) and Fluorescence (FIA) assays.

Wheat Germ Coated Plates are pre-blocked in order to minimize any non-specific binding and to ensure long-term stability.
