Learn how your ligand binds to live cells with LigandTracer
LigandTracer® monitors molecular interactions in real-time, right on your lab bench, with only a few preparatory steps and limited input. The most common target is a cellular receptor expressed on the surface of living cells, but almost any interaction can be monitored as long as:
- You can label your ligand of interest
- Targets can be attached to a Petri dish
- The interaction occurs within minutes to hours
For more examples, visit Applications.
LigandTracer monitors interactions as they happen; detecting interaction properties that can easily be missed by using established endpoint methods such as ELISA. Data points are taken automatically at set intervals, allowing you to obtain in-depth information about the interaction that you’re studying.
The different LigandTracer models are separated by the type of label they can detect. Most applications can be performed on any of the available models but there are a few exceptions. The color indications in the upper right corner of each application represent the instrument models that are suitable.
