The Miptec exhibition at Basel Life 2018 marked the official launch of our Fluidity One instrument. Download a copy of our poster and presentation from the event here.
Blog30 May 2018How does the Fluidity One compare to UV-Vis spectrophotometers in testing the concentration of proteins?
UV-vis absorbance testing is a popular method for rapid testing of protein concentration with only a small sample volume needed. Here we compare this method to Microfluidic Diffusional Sizing (MDS), as used on the Fluidity One, to see how the workflow, accuracy, test method, range and limitations compare.
Blog17 May 2018Protein size - how do I measure it, and why is it important?
An overview of why protein size matters, and what structural and functional information protein size can reveal. To understand proteins and their function, we have to understand the way they fold, aggregate and interact. Conformation is key to protein function and can be revealed by measuring size.
Different methods for measuring protein size are summarised, and comparison is made, considering the method, range, cost and limitations of each technology.
Blog23 April 2018What analytical laboratory methods are available for protein quantification? How do they compare?
Quantification is an essential part of protein analysis and quality control. Here we look at the various approaches for protein quantification, their advantages, and their limitations.
