Available in PolySorp™, Medisorp™,  MaxiSorp™,  and MultiSorp™ coatings, our clear immuno breakable modules, standard modules and plates will help you in the selection of passive surfaces for the immobilization of particular biomolecules.

Available in affinity and covalent binding surfaces, our plates and modules reduce variability in molecular orientation and reduce the amount of reagents used in your experiments.

Available in PolySorp™, MaxiSorp™, and Mini-Sorp™ formats, our immuno tubes and stoppers are ideal for ELISA, Solid Phase RIA, Liquid Phase RIA, or sample storage. When working in biotechnology, pharmaceutical laboratories or in production of vaccines and diagnostic kits, use Thermo Scientific™ Nunc™ Immuno Stick.

Available in PolySorp™, Medisorp™,  MaxiSorp™, and MultiSorp™ coatings, our black and white immuno breakable modules, standard modules and plates will help you in the selection of passive surfaces to ensure fluorescence and luminescence assays are easy to handle.


What is the best type of surface for my needs?

Whatever the format chosen, there are a number of choices to be made about the best type of surface for the application. The choice will depend on the assay component to be immobilized. Our Solid Phase Guide is an introduction to solid phase techniques, including:

  • Solid Phase formats and surfaces
  • Parameters affection coating
  • Assay conditions for ELISA
  • Immobilization of DNA
