Low Binding Beads
All surfaces have the potential to non-specifically adsorb proteins, DNA and RNA. Zirconium and silica beads are no exception, developed the Low Binding bead to help minimize non-specific absorption of molecules to the bead surface. Using a proprietary process, beads are chemically modified to eliminate surface charges, reducing the chance of ionic interactions with solutes than with Acid Washed beads alone. Homogenizing with Low Binding beads yields a greater concentration of solutes and provides greater range and linearity in many assays, especially in real-time PCR.
