Creative Diagnostics Releases New Self-Assembled Monolayers Reagents for Science Research

With years of experience in the pharmaceutical and life science sector, Creative Diagnostics recently launches a series of self-assembled monolayers reagents formed with thiol and disulfide derivatives, which are already optimized in one bottle and simple to use. Self-assembled monolayers are widely used for immobilization of antibody, antigen, and DNA.

Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are prepared by immersing a clean gold-coated glass plate into a dilute solution of the desired thiol. SAM can be formed with different terminal function groups through various alkanethiol derivatives (collectively called SAM Formation Reagents), to generate a monolayer surface with functionality that is able to attach biological molecules for biosensor construction. The optimized reagents can reduce unspecific binding significantly.

Self-assembled monolayers are a single layer of highly ordered molecules of a surfactant formed spontaneously on a substrate when exposed to a surfactant solution. The procedure for preparation of SAMs on gold is simple, no special equipment is required to prepare SAM layers, explained below. The resulting monolayer is an extremely dense-packed, crystalline monolayer.

"Since the discovery of SAMs, the SAMs technique has been widely used in wetting, adhesion, corrosion, catalysis, nanolithography and biosensors. To meet the growing need for self-assembled monolayers reagents, we now provide Amine Coupling Kit, Biotin-SAM Formation Reagent, Carboxylic acid-SAM Formation Reagent, and NTA-SAM Formation Reagent for our global customers. Creative Diagnostics will continue to serve researchers in their pursuit of best performance of products and services." said Dr. Jessica Waldorf, chief scientific officer of R&D department, at Creative Diagnostics.

"The release of the self-assembled monolayers reagents is one of the latest examples of Creative Diagnostics' commitment to providing customers with innovative and high quality tools; we now offer a series of self-assembled monolayers reagents for customers all over the world. We have a group of talented, diverse and thoughtful employees, who are dedicated and passionate about offering expertise for our clients, so any issues about self-assembled monolayers reagents can be properly solved at Creative Diagnostics." said Alex, one of a senior scientific officers at Creative Diagnostics.
