A novel Förster donor-acceptor dye pair for an immunoassay based on resonance energy transfer (RET) is characterized with respect to its photophysical properties. As donor and acceptor, we chose the long-wavelength excitable cyanine dyes Cy5 and Cy5.5, respectively. Due to the perfect spectral overlap, an exceptionally high R(0) value of 68.7 A is obtained(More)
Amino acid changes within the major antigenic determinant of the hepatitis B virus (HBV) surface antigen (HBsAg) may modify eventually the antigenic properties of the protein and may have impact on the sensitivity of diagnostic assays. Modifications in the design of an assay can, however, improve significantly its ability to detect HBV mutants. One hundred(More)
The miniaturization of a homogeneous competitive immunoassay to a final assay volume of 70 nL is described. As the sample carrier, disposable plastic nanotiter plates (NTP) with dimensions of 2 x 2 cm2 containing 25 x 25 wells, corresponding to approximately 15,000 wells on a traditional 96-well microtiter plate footprint, were used. Sample handling was(More)
The cyanine dyes Cy5 and Cy5.5 are presented as a new long wavelength-excitable donor-acceptor dye pair for homogeneous fluoroimmunoassays. The deactivation pathways responsible for the quenching of the fluorescence of the antibody-bound donor are elucidated. Upon binding of the donor dye to the antibodies at low dye/protein ratios, its fluorescence quantum(More)
In the field of environmental analysis there is still great potential for development and application of immunoanalytical techniques (IT). Heterogeneous and homogeneous immunoassays (IA), flow-injection immunoanalysis (FIIA) and immunosensors (IS) with different detection principles have been developed. In this review we focus on fluorescence methods for(More)
