XanTec 2D surface

XanTec 2D flat surface sensor chips

In the table below the 2D flat surface sensor chips available at XanTec (1). The surface thickness is below 5 nm offering a real flat surface. These planar coatings allow immobilization of small ligand densities of maximal one monolayer, which corresponds to approximately 1 ng protein/mm2. Their primary application is kinetic analysis, BIA of analytes with high molecular weight and capture of particulate analytes such as viruses, cells and particles.
