    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

    The World’s First Digital Benchtop SPR System to Accelerate Drug Discovery

    Nicoya recently announced the launch of Alto, the world’s first fully-automated, high-throughput benchtop surface plasmon resonance (SPR) system. The new SPR system uhootses digital microfluidics technology and flexible 16-channel design to reduce the time and cost of drug discovery. Digital Microfluidics solves the major limitation of scaling up throughput and automation of SPR technology, which ... Read More

    Hazardous-Drug API Powder Safety

    With many active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), especially hazardous ones in powdered form, lab personnel must work with equipment that performs as designed. That performance—particularly in biosafety cabinets (BSCs)—can only be ensured if the equipment receives the required maintenance. Learn how maintenance makes the difference in keeping people safe.
