Covalent coupling of antibodies to M-Beads MIA-COOH Beads
- Superparamagnetic beads with a mean diameter of 300 nm
- Not affected by reagent chemistry or photobleaching
- Excellent long-term stability
- Allows for magnetic immunoassays in a variety of formats
- Signal measured by a magnetometer is proportional to the analyte
- Can be used as
- detection label in magnetic immunoassays
- solid support phase in immunoassays with other readout techniques
- M-Beads MIA-COOH beads are superparamagnetic beads with a mean diameter of 300 nm which can be used as a detection label in magnetic immunoassays, or as solid support phase in immunoassays with
other readout techniques.
- M-Beads MIA-COOH 300 beads are intended for covalent antibody coupling to facilitate specific analyte detection. Other applications include protein coupling in combination with the use of a specific
antibody – for instance, streptavidin coupling and a biotinylated antibody.
- Magnetic immunoassays (MIA) use magnetic beads as labels instead of conventional enzymes (ELISA), fluorophores, or luminescent molecules. These assays involve the specific binding of an antibody with
a conjugated magnetic label to its antigen. The presence of magnetic beads is then detected by a magnetic reader (magnetometer) which measures the magnetic field change induced by the beads. The signal
measured by the magnetometer is proportional to the analyte (virus, toxin, bacteria, cardiac marker, etc.) quantity in the initial sample.
