    How does the Fluidity One-W work?

    The Fluidity One-W uses microfluidic diffusional sizing (MDS) technology to determine the binding affinity between proteins and their binding partners; whether they are aptamers, lipids, DNA, small molecules or other proteins. Watch the video to understand how the Fluidity One-W works.

    Looking at the numbers: Why protein stoichiometry matters

    Accurate determination of stoichiometry for a protein complex is critical to our understanding how the complex will react to other proteins or small molecules. Here we look at how stoichiometry not only effects important viral protein-antibody interactions but also disease pathology.

    Microfluidic diffusional sizing (MDS) in the literature

    Document referencing all the publications where microfluidic diffusional sizing (MDS) has been used.

  • Publication24 July 2019

    Putative interaction site for membrane phospholipids controls activation of TRPA1 channel at physiological membrane potentials.

    Macikova et al use Microfluidic Diffusional Sizing (MDS) along with other techniques to understand the role phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) has in the regulation of transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) channel. The Fluidity One was used to create binding curves of the interactions between two specific peptides (L992-N1008 and T1003-P1034) and model lipid membranes in the presence of PIP2.

    Fluidity One-W Brochure

    This brochure gives an overview of the capabilities, applications and full technical specifications of the Fluidity One-W

  • Application note03 April 2019

    Determination of KD of aptamer protein interactions by microfluidic diffusional sizing

    Here the Fluidity One-W is used to experimentally determine the KD of two protein aptamer interactions, with results in good agreement with literature values. Importantly the technique required no calibration, complex setup or specialist sample preparation. Furthermore, the interaction is assessed without immobilising or altering either molecule beyond the addition of a standard fluorescent label.
