Advantages of SG Cap™

SG Cap™ is a silicate monomer formula that undergoes the sol-gel process to become a highly porous gel. The pores within the gel are connected to each other by larger channels. Samples flow through the channels and specific molecules are captured within the pores, where they float freely in their native conformations. This process makes it possible to immobilize and study a molecule from all angles. Non-specific material easily washes away via the channels, substantially reducing the signal-to- noise ratio.

The porous 3D structure of the gel also significantly increases load capacity while the interconnecting channels reduce diffusion distances compared to competing two-dimensional systems. The format ensures a high level of interactions between molecules. SG Cap™ is a highly enabling and flexible immobilization method with unparalleled sensitivity and specificity thresholds.
