Pierce™ Protein G Coated Plates, Clear, 8-Well Strip (Thermo Scientific™)

Thermo Scientific Pierce Clear, Protein G Coated 8-Well Strip Plates provide an alternative to direct, passive adsorption methods for immobilizing antibodies for ELISA and other plate-based assay techniques.

Features of Protein G Coated Plates:

• Retain antibody activity, which can be lost when antibodies are immobilized by passive adsorption
• Orient antibodies for maximum antigen-binding capacity
• Immobilize antibodies for plate assays without prior purification
• Ensure minimal variation (<5% well-to-well) from consistent coating
• Reduce nonspecific binding because plates are pre-blocked with SuperBlock Blocking Buffer
• Bind 2 to 5 pmol of antibody per well (based on tests with rabbit IgG)

These plates are uniformly and stably coated with Protein G, and enable antibodies or pre-established antibody-antigen complexes to be captured to wells of the polystyrene plate for subsequent detection in plate readers. The strategy is useful for a variety of assay situations, but it is generally not suitable for sandwich-type ELISA.

Protein G Coated Microplates:
• Binds strongly to IgG from many species including human, mouse, rabbit, sheep and goat
• Binds only to IgG—no cross-reactivity with other antibody classes
• Binds to Fc region of antibodies for optimal orientation

Pierce™ NeutrAvidin™ Coated Plates, Clear, 8-Well Strip (Thermo Scientific™)

Thermo Scientific NeutrAvidin Protein Coated Clear 8-Well Strip Plates are pre-blocked and ready-to-use polystyrene plates for binding biotinylated antibodies or probes for ELISA and other target-specific assays.

Features of NeutrAvidin Protein Coated Clear 8-Well Strip Plates:

• Clear plates for colorimetric detection methods
• Pre-blocked with SuperBlock Blocking Buffer
• Easy and gentle immobilization of biotin-containing conjugates
• Low nonspecific binding
• No denaturing of the protein component of a conjugate upon binding
• Ideal for binding small biotinylated hydrophilic molecules (e.g., peptides) that typically exhibit poor binding to polystyrene
• Less expensive than streptavidin coated plates
• Lowest nonspecific binding properties of all biotin-binding proteins

Biotin-binding plates are ideal for applications when direct adsorption to polystyrene denatures antibodies or the target molecule. Streptavidin is the most popular and widely available biotin-binding protein for research methods. Streptavidin has an isoelectric point of 5 to 6, resulting in low nonspecific interactions. Thermo Scientific NeutrAvidin Protein is a deglycosylated form of avidin, which has a near-neutral pI (6.3), resulting in even lower nonspecific interactions. NeutrAvidin Protein has the additional advantage of lacking the bacterial RYD sequence found on streptavidin, which eliminates off-target binding to the RGD binding domain of adhesion receptors present in a variety of cells.

Pierce™ Maleimide Activated Plates, Black, 96-Well (Thermo Scientific™)

These Thermo Scientific Pierce Maleimide Activated Black, 96-Well Plates are ideal for binding sulfhydryl-containing molecules that are difficult to coat onto polystyrene plates, such as peptides that contain a terminal cysteine. Our coated plates are an especially useful tool for assessing specific anti-hapten antibody titers during antibody production.

Features of Maleimide Activated Black, 96-Well Plates:

• Black, for fluorescent assays
• Pre-blocked to reduce nonspecific binding
• Easy (spontaneous) immobilization of peptides derivatized with a terminal cysteine and proteins with free sulfhydryl
• Binding Capacity: 100 to 150 pmol of a sulfhydryl-containing peptide (307 Da) per well
• Activation Level: 100 µL

Maleimides react with free sulfhydryl group(s) at pH of 6.5-7.5, forming stable thioether linkages. Reaction with amines becomes significant at pH > 7.5. Some sulfhydryl-containing peptides and proteins may oxidize in solution and form disulfide bonds, which cannot react with maleimides. Disulfide bonds can be reduced to produce free sulfhydryls. The TCEP Disulfide Reducing Gel enables peptide or protein reduction while recovering the sample in the absence of reducing agents. Sulfhydryls can be introduced via amine modification using N-succinimidyl S-acetylthioacetate (SATA) or 2-iminothiolane-HCl (Traut's Reagent).

Pierce™ Glutathione Coated Plates, Black, 96-Well (Thermo Scientific™)

Thermo Scientific Pierce Glutathione Coated Plates are standard 96-well microplates coated with intact glutathione (GSH) and pre-blocked for use in capture and detection assays involving glutathione-S-transferase (GST) fusion proteins.

Features of these Glutathione Coated Plates:

Selective—specifically binds fusion proteins containing glutathione S-transferase
Capacity—binds approx. 10 ng GST protein per well
Versatile—ready-to-bind plate format is useful for protein interaction studies
Compatible—detergents used to lyse cells do not inhibit GST protein binding to pre-coated plates (by contrast with direct coating methods with polystyrene plates)
Ready to use—Pre-blocked with BSA and SuperBlock Blocking Buffer to reduce nonspecific binding

Thermo Scientific Pierce Glutathione Coated Plates are standard 96-well polystyrene microplates whose wells have been coated with intact glutathione (GSH) and pre-blocked for use in capture and detection assays involving glutathione-S-transferase (GST) fusion proteins. These glutathione coated plates can be used in the analysis of cell lysates to determine the presence and concentration of the GST-fusion protein produced in an expression system. Alternatively, the plates can be used to capture and coat fusion proteins via their GST tag for subsequent binding assays involving the recombinant protein (either protein interactions or a specific antibody). Because the plates are pre-blocked, initial purification of the cell lysates is not necessary.

Pierce™ Maleic Anhydride Activated Plates, Clear, 8-Well Strip (Thermo Scientific™)

These Thermo Scientific Pierce Maleic Anhydride Activated 8-Well Strip Plates are clear, 96-well strip plates that allow attachment of amine-containing peptides and other molecules to microplate wells for use in binding assays.

Features of Maleic Anhydride Activated Plates:

• Spontaneously react with primary amines
• A direct, simple approach to covalently attach molecules to the well surface of an EIA plate
• Maleic anhydride maintains its integrity and availability for coupling for months under dry, room temperature conditions

These plates are useful for immobilizing peptides and other ligands that do not coat efficiently by passive adsorption. Reaction of the maleic anhydride groups with primary amines (-NH2) results in formation of amide bonds that are stable at neutral pH and above. Acidic conditions hydrolyze the bond; for example, the half-life of hydrolysis at pH 3.5 and 37°C is approximately 11 hours (Ref.1). Therefore, coating reactions are best performed at pH 8-9, and the reacted plates are best used at pH > 7 for ELISA and other methods.

Thermo Scientific Pierce Coated Plates are coated using proprietary surface-activation technology to achieve maximum efficient coating of active streptavidin biotin-binding protein. The high sensitivity plates enable detection of low concentrations (ng/mL) of biotinylated antibodies and other proteins. Whether to detect signal by fluorescent, colorimetric or chemiluminescent methods, these plates make it easy to develop an ELISA for any sample with a low-level target.

Streptavidin is the most popular and widely available biotin-binding protein for research methods. Streptavidin has an isoelectric point of 5 to 6, resulting in low non-specific interactions.

Features of Pierce Nickel Coated Plates:

• Ni2+ activated surface enables metal-chelate binding of His-tagged proteins
• Detergents used to lyse cells don't inhibit binding to activated plates as they do with plain polystyrene
• Better binding for sensitive assays compared to other commercially available nickel-activated plates
• Detection limit: 1ng of polyhistidine fusion protein
• Binding capacity: approx. 9 pmol His-tagged protein (27kDa) per well
• Activation level: 200 µL

These Ni(2+) chelate-coated plates are ideal for analyzing polyhistidine-tagged fusion proteins by ELISA-based methods. Proteins that contain a succession of several histidine residues at the amino or carboxyl terminus have a strong binding affinity for metal. Bacterial lysates containing polyhistidine-tagged fusion proteins can be added directly to the plates without the need for blocking.
