BlogProtein analysis techniques - a history and timeline
Proteins were discovered in the late 18th century, but analytical methods to observe them were not developed until more than 100 years later. This timeline shows when different techniques were developed.
BlogProtein DLS result not as expected? Try these troubleshooting tips
If your DLS result for a protein sample is not what you expected, it could be down to one of these common reasons. Use this list to troubleshoot your DLS protein results fast.
BlogHow does Microfluidic Diffusional Sizing (MDS) compare to Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) for protein size tests?
Measuring the size of proteins provides insights into folding and conformations, aggregation and oligomerization. We compare and contrast the benefits and limitations of two popular techniques - DLS Dynamic Light Scattering, and MDS Microfluidic Diffusional Sizing.
BlogProtein 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.
