BIACORE'S surface plasmon resonance (SPR) technology provides a rapid and reliable automated biosensor system for the food industry. The Biacore Q instrument allows accurate determination of analyte concentrations in foodstuffs.
With measurements based on biospecific recognition, high specificity is enabled even in complex sample matrices.
Label-free SPR technology is largely independent of matrix effects, which can interfere in many conventional detection methods. Tests are easily performed with Biacore Q-specific reagent kits or with user-developed reagents, with quick alternation between assays possible via its flow system.
Some of the test kits available from Biacore are veterinary drug residue and antibiotic kits including Streptomycin, Chloramphenicol, Clenbuterol and Multi-Beta agonists, Ractopamine and Sulfonamides. Biacore also offers five kits for determination of water-soluble vitamins: Biotin, Folic Acid and Qflex Kit Vitamins B12, B2 and B5.
