Further, with its newly engineered biocompatible surface matrix, the AR2G biosensor provides enhancements over our first-generation AR biosensor, including greater signal intensity during the loading (immobilization of ligand) and association (detection of analyte) steps of an assay, increased loading density, decreased non-specific binding, and increased stability in a wide range of pH and salt conditions.
