Immunoassay Products

High quality binding surfaces

MTX Labs, Inc.'s variety of Microtiter products permits selection of the optimum binding characteristics and microplate formulations for immunoassays. MTX Microtiter products have binding characteristics that include immulon, and universal/enhanced binding plates.  These make good experimental design easier, allowing development of assays with stringent pH, buffer, pKa and resin requirements. 

Five choices of binding characteristics:

Immulon 1 B consistent medium binding affinity for hydrophobic complexes and proteins.
Immulon 2 HB high binding irradiated surface to provide increased binding affinity for hydrophilic proteins and complexes.
Immulon 4 HBX high binding extra surface with special resin and irradiation, offers maximum protein uptake.
Universal Binding (UB) consistent medium binding affinity for hydrophobic complexes and proteins.
Enhanced Binding (EB) high binding irradiated surface to provide increased binding affinity for hydrophilic proteins and complexes. Guaranteed coefficient of variation (CVs).

Five choices of well shapes
Well shapes can be chosen to best suit your application.

Flat bottom works well for reagent injection while providing the optimal optical characteristics.
C-bottom similar to the Flat bottom, with a slight rounded curve before the bottom.
U-bottom improves washing in ELISAs, enhances sensitivity in fluorescent applications and facilitates observation of agglutination reactions.
Round-bottom enhances washing in ELISAs while retaining high-quality optical characteristics.
Flat bottom with radius edge enhances washing in ELISAs, works well for reagent injection and provides 0optimal optical characteristics.

Highly flexible plate configurations

MTX's Immulon and universal/enhanced binding Microtiter plates are available in 96-well and strip plate format, allowing you to match them perfectly to your automated instruments. These plates with breakable strips offer maximum efficiency for processing both large and small numbers of samples, as the exact number of wells required can be used.  The break-apart wells have a unique well locking system that keeps the wells and your samples securely in place. Strips come in 1x8 and 1x12 break-apart or solid strip format with paired 2x8 strips also available.

Strip Plates

Combiplates

The Combiplate consist of 8- or 12- well Microstrips, either solid or breakable, assembled in a MultiFrame.  The reusable MultiFrame supports each well individually, ensuring the correct positioning for automated instruments.  The frame is suitable for stacking systems, and it is vented for efficient incubation of microplate wells.

Advanced features and careful design ensure the reliability of Microstrips. Coating and washing are always even, and a recessed bottom keeps the surface clean and scratch free, ensuring high optical performance. Depending on the plate format, Microstrips are available with Universal Binding, Enhanced Binding, Streptavidin-Coated and covalent AquaBind surfaces.

Breakable Microstrips offer maximum economy for processing a small number of samples. Careful design and special features ensure reliability. The exact number of wells needed can be broken off and inserted into the MultiFrame.

Combiplates and Microstrips are available in clear, black and white versions.

Advanced features of the Combiplate

  • Economical two-part plate (MultiFrame plus Microstrips) allows the use of exact number of wells.
  • Improved Safety
  • Top-quality materials ensure high optical performance and optimum binding characteristics.
  • Unique Well Locking System keeps wells in place.
  • Maximum well volume 400µl.
  • The same MultiFrame can be used with both 8- and 12-well solid and breakable Microstrips.
  • Microstrip Ordering Information

A patented Well Locking System keeps Microstrips firmly in place. Even single wells will not dislodge if the frame is shaken or inverted. To lock, wells are turned slightly after insertion in the MultiFrame.
Breakable Microstrips are specially designed to snap apart, so the exact number of wells needed can be inserted in the MultiFrame. Handles at the strip end are easy to remove, and the correct height of individual wells is ensured by a ridge around the well.

Luminescence Application Products

MTX Offers a selection of Microtiter plates specifically designed for luminescence applications. Microlite and white universal/enhanced binding plates are very densely pigmented to minimize cross talk and to provide high reflectivity.  These characteristics are ideal for very intense luminescent reactions where light piping may be a concern or minimal luminescence assays where even a minute amount of light could affect your results.

Wide range of binding characteristics.
Microlite 1 luminescence vessel provides high reflectivity, medium binding and low cross talk.
Microlite 2 is an irradiated formulation for luminescence assays that require higher binding, high reflectivity and low cross talk.
Microlite 1+ is the ideal vessel for low signal luminescent reactions, offering medium binding with enhanced dynamic range, extra high reflectivity and minimal cross talk.
Microlite 2+ is an irradiated, high binding surface with enhanced dynamic range, extra high reflectivity and minimal cross talk for low signal luminescent reactions.
Microlite TCT plate is a 96-well sterile plate for luminescent tissue culture assays.
White Universal Binding (UB) luminescence vessel provides high reflectivity, medium binding and low cross talk.
White Enhanced Binding (EB) is an irradiated formulation for luminescence assays that require higher binding, high reflectivity and low cross talk with guaranteed  coefficient of variation (CVs).

Highly flexible plate configurations

MTX's Microlite-, Microlite+ and enhanced/universal binding products are available in 96-well and strip plate format, with several choices of well shape.  The strips can be provided in break-apart or solid strip format and the  break-apart wells have a unique well locking system that keeps the wells and your samples securely in place.
