I would like to couple a CM5 chip with Neutravidin, block with Ethanolamine and then add my biotinylated protein (looking at protein-peptide binding). Has anyone had experience with this setup? I guess I am interested in knowing how well it worked for others and what amount of Neutravidin they have had good luck with.
Any other hints/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Adding Neutravidin to CM5 chip

I don't have a perfect answer for you but some references to start with.
I would start with a normal amine immobilization and culculate what desnity you want.
As an alternative you can use the SA-sensorchip with straptavidin on the surface. That will speed up your experiment.
You can also use the CAP-regaent sensor chip. This is a more flexible way of immobilization using the biotin-avidin system. Take a look!
