  • Advice to be applied during the realization of the experiment (duration of kinetics, flow rate, regeneration, ...)
  • Establishment of an experimental protocol


Day 2

  • Choose suitable surface chemistry for immobilized ligands
  • Perform spotting based on the previously defined protocol
  • Advice about the maintenance of the instrument


Day 3

  • Carry out the SPRi experiment as described in the protocol
  • Master the use of the chosen SPRi device (XelPleX or OpenPleX)
