Who Is Sophomer s.r.o.?
Sophomer s.r.o. is an academic startup founded by a group of people who come from both industry and academia. Their vision is to bring together two seemingly unrelated fields: immunoassays and polymer chemistry to help anyone who uses immunochemical assays in their work. One of the startup's first and widely applicable products is SophoMer™ F10, a polymer that can replace the widely used bovine serum albumin in immunochemical assays, currently a component without which the development of immunological analytics is seemingly unimaginable.
What Is SophoMer™ F10?
SophoMer™ F10 is a fully synthetic material that has been developed with an ambitious goal: to replace the most commonly used nonspecific binding blocker – Bovine Serum Albumin – with a tailored fully synthetic material that meets the following criteria:
Is a more effective non-specific binding blocker.
Is a chemically defined material with minimal batch-to-batch variability.
Is animal component-free material.
SophoMer™ F10 was initiated to take up the challenge and support the world-leading developers of IVD immunology diagnostics.
Four Main Benefits of SophoMer™ F10:
Tailored fully synthetic material
Chemically defined material with precise batch to batch reproducibility
Highly effective nonspecific binding blocker
Animal component-free product =
no pathogenic contaminants
How Does SophoMer™ F10 Work?
SophoMer™ F10 can shield nonspecific non-covalent interactions in your sample solution, and block nonspecific interaction with plastic material used for analysis. In many assays, a much lower concentration of SophoMer™ F10 is required than BSA.
