Pierce Maleic Anhydride Activated Plates are useful for immobilizing peptides and other ligands that do not coat efficiently by passive adsorption. Reaction of the maleic anhydride groups with primary amines (–NH2) results in formation of amide bonds that are stable at neutral pH and above. Acidic conditions hydrolyze the bond; for example, the half-life of hydrolysis at pH 3.5 and 37°C is approximately 11 hours. Therefore, coating reactions are best performed at pH 8 to 9, and the reacted plates are best used at pH greater than 7 for ELISA and other methods.


  • Spontaneously react with primary amines
  • A direct, simple approach to covalently attach molecules to the well surfaces of assay plates
  • Maleic anhydride maintains its integrity and availability for coupling for months under dry, room temperature conditions
