What shoud be optimized before fitting?
A: association time longer B: longer dissociation time C: user higher analyte concentrations D: use lower analyte concentrations
Which curve has the fastest dissociation rate constant?
A: curve A B: curve B C: you should know the analyte concentration D: you should know the Rmax of the system

When you have this fit as a result. What can you do? Hint: go for the best result.

Are the values given in the inset plausible with this sensorgram? Hint: look at the curve spacing.
A: yes B: no, dissociation looks faster C: no, dissociations looks slower D: no, Rmax is too high
What do you want to change if you see this fitting?
A: nothing, this looks fine B: make association time longer C: make dissociation time longer D: lower ligand concentration E: use higher analyte concentration
27. To calculate (fit) meaningful results you need curves
A: which go to Rmax B: which go to steady state C: which have curvature D: with a low response
28. What can you tell about the Rmax?
A: it is dependent on the ka and kd of an interaction B: it is dependent on the surface capacity and the molecular weight of ligand and analyte C: it is dependent on the analyte concentration D: it is dependent on the equilibrium constant KD E: B + C
