# Multi Component Bi-Langmuir¶

The multi component Bi-Langmuir model  adds $$M - 1$$ additional types of binding sites $$q_{i,j}$$ ($$0 \leq j \leq M - 1$$) to the Langmuir model (see Section Multi Component Langmuir) without allowing an exchange between the different sites $$q_{i,j}$$ and $$q_{i,k}$$ ($$k \neq j$$). Therefore, there are no competitivity effects between the different types of binding sites and they have independent capacities.

\begin{aligned} \frac{\mathrm{d} q_{i,j}}{\mathrm{d} t} &= k_{a,i}^{(j)}\: c_{p,i}\: q_{\text{max},i}^{(j)} \left( 1 - \sum_{k=0}^{N_{\text{comp}} - 1} \frac{q_{k,j}}{q_{\text{max},k}^{(j)}}\right) - k_{d,i}^{(j)} q_{i,j} & i = 0, \dots, N_{\text{comp}} - 1, \: j = 0, \dots, M - 1.% (0 \leq i \leq N_{\text{comp}} - 1, \: 0 \leq j \leq M - 1). \end{aligned}

Note that all binding components must have exactly the same number of binding site types $$M \geq 1$$. See the Section Multi Component Langmuir.

Originally, the Bi-Langmuir model is limited to two different binding site types. Here, the model has been extended to arbitrary many binding site types.
