Application Note: An Introduction to Proteins in 30 Minutes
5 August 2014

In the biotechnology industry, the majority of research is directed towards characterizing the structure and function of proteins. New methods are continually being developed to accomplish this. Light scattering technologies are relatively new to the field of protein characterization but the potential for characterizing them using methods that do not consume the sample is great. This technical note provides an introduction to the field of proteins, their composition and structure, and how size, molecular weight and ζ-potential measurements can be applied.
