BIACORE is a system for real-time analysis of interactions between molecules that can be used for both qualitative and quantitative investigations. In particular, continuous monitoring of both association and dissociation phases in an interaction allows determination of rate and affinity constants. This chapter focuses on quantitative analysis of interaction kinetics.
