Optimer® Binders for the Detection & Analysis of Folate Metabolites
Small molecules are ubiquitous, from drugs such as chemotherapeutics and antibiotics, to food additives, such as vitamin supplements, or environmental contaminants. Detecting and monitoring these molecules is vital for many processes but can be slow, costly and cumbersome with traditional methods such as mass spectrometry requiring specialized laboratories with specially trained operatives. Optimer® binders offer a solution for quick and convenient analysis of small molecule targets through affinity-based assays. With a unique discovery process dedicated to small molecule targets, Optimer® binders deliver better performance and accurate results. Now offering even simpler assays for your convenience, see the latest results from our R&D team showing how Optimer® binders can be retro-engineered into molecular beacons for in-solution concentration monitoring of your small molecule analyte.
