Sensograms of human chorionic gonadotropin–monoclonal antibody (hCG–MAb); ligand–ligate binding in the BIAcore were analysed. Surface-bound MAb in 0.1 M phosphate buffer was unaltered by the concentration of MAb $(C_M_A_b)$ as well as pH of the sensogram. Surprisingly, at 0.01 M phosphate buffer concentration surface-bound MAb markedly decreased (300%) at pH 9. At low ionic strength Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA), a nonspecific protein, bound to the uncoupled (control channel) chip at pH 5, but not at 7. BSA so bound did show a dissociation profile like MAb, with fast and slow dissociating components. Binding of BSA to the chip at low ionic strength clearly stablished the presence of salt-dependent interaction between the protein and chip matrix. A model is proposed which rationally explains, on the basis of electrostatic interaction, the association and dissociation anomalies often encountered in the BIAcore sensograms.
