• Give Centrifuge Maintenance a Healthy Spin

    Give Centrifuge Maintenance a Healthy Spin

    Many workflows in clinical diagnostic labs require spinning down a sample. That task might require a general-purpose centrifuge or a high-speed one. In some cases, a temperature-controlled ultracentrifuge might be the best choice. For any centrifuging device used in a clinical workflow, the instrument must be kept pristine and operating as intended. Learn how centrifuge maintenance can save your ... Read More

    Pushing Virus Research to the Limits: Insights from Single-Molecule Microscopy

    An indepth look at Single-Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM), a super-resolution imaging technique that overcomes the diffraction limit of light, enabling imaging down to 20 nm resolution. This level of detail allows researchers to conduct in-depth investigations into how viruses are assembled, how different components are arranged, and how viruses interact with cells. Read More
  • Optimizing DLS Measurements for Protein Characterization

    Optimizing DLS Measurements for Protein Characterization

    Many common globular proteins are very small in hydrodynamic size, with monomers rarely greater than 10 nm. Protein aggregates can easily reach large sizes, on the order of several hundred nm or larger, which complicate this already challenging measurement. In this scenario scattering from aggregated protein easily dominates the signal of free, or monomeric protein. This principle is demonstrated ... Read More
