Protein A Coated Surface is designed for the capture of IgG applied directly or as an antibody/antigen complex.
Protein A Coated Surface provides an alternative to direct, passive adsorption methods for immobilizing antibodies for ELISA and other plates-based assay techniques.
Protein A specifically binds the Fc region of immunoglobulins of many mammalian species (see Table 1) with an orientation that allows the F(ab)2 binding sites to be freely available for efficient binding to epitope. When coated on a surface, the Protein A can securely capture IgG applied directly or as antigen/antibody complexes.
Examples of applications for Protein A Coated surface
- specific and sterically oriented bond of IgG
- separation of IgG from other immunoglobulins
- separation of antigen-antibodies complexes
- separation of IgG from contaminants
- isolation and analysis of fusion proteins
- finding and identifying red cell antibodies (only on U-bottom plates) (see Test for finding and identifying red cell antibodies by means of solid phase method)
