Each isotherm plot of the raw SPR response versus Cb is fit with Eq. , SAS Institute, Cary, NC). However, it should be understood that the values of Q and K determined by this fit may be substantially influenced by peptide–peptide interactions on the surface. In order to measure peptide adsorption behavior with minimal influence from peptide–peptide interactions, we use the premise that peptide–peptide interactions are minimized at very low solution concentrations, but then influence the isotherm shape (and thus the values of Q and K) as the surface becomes crowded at higher values of Cb.

J. Limo et al. 4 Determination of DGoads by SPR Spectroscopy To determine DGoads accurately for peptide adsorption using SPR, two key issues must be addressed: the need to account for (i) ‘‘bulk-shift’’ effects and (ii) the influence of solute–solute interactions on the surface. Because SPR measures the refractive index change of the medium within a distance of about 300 nm of the plasmon-producing surface, it is sensitive to both the molecules adsorbed at the interface and the molecules suspended in the medium within this 300 nm distance (de Mol and Fischer 2010).

Given the importance of the behavior of peptides when they come in contact with material surfaces, experimental methods are needed to quantitatively characterize peptide-surface interactions. Over the past few decades, several experimental techniques have been developed to study peptide adsorption behavior on material surfaces. These methods include atomic force microscopy (AFM), ellipsometry, isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC), optical waveguide lightmode spectroscopy (OWLS), quartz crystal microbalance (QCM), sum-frequency generation (SFG), and surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy (SPR).
