Application Note: Membrane Fluidity Measurements Using UV Fluorescence Polarization and the POLARstar Omega
21 April 2010

In this application note the POLARstar Omega microplate reader from BMG LABTECH was used to study membrane fluidity via fluorescence polarization in the UV range. The method allows for the monitoring of large scale alterations in membrane fluidity (such as phase transitions), as well as more subtle changes in lipid dynamics.
