    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

    Infectious Diseases Detection Platform: COVID-19

    The COVID-19 Pandemic has forced an aggressive global testing strategy. Most of the standard viral detection methods around the world are using real-time PCR. However, the operation and interpretation of real-time PCR test results require professional or well-trained technicians and false-positive results are often occurring. Learn how a total solution is being developed which includes Direct "RT-... Read More
