The key to LigandTracer is its flexibility: its straightforward technology enables a wide use with many applications to choose from.
As long as one binding partner (the target) can be immobilized and the other be labeled with a fluorophore or radioactive nuclide (the ligand), you are free to choose what these partners should be. The most common target is a receptor expressed on live adherent or anchored suspension cells, but bacteria, tissue sections, or adsorbed proteins can serve as targets too. The ligand is typically a protein or peptide, but can also be small synthetic drugs, cells (cell-cell interactions), virus or nanoparticles.
