Water channel efficiency & stopped flow
Stopped-flow are the only instruments able to quantify the efficiency of aquaporin channels by measuring water permeability following an osmotic shock.
QCM: Why measuring at overtones matters
The benefits of QCM measurements at overtones are described.
QCM: History and principles
The principles behind the QCM technique are described as well as an introduction to its history.
The enhancement of m-ATPase activity during resistance training and consequent performance gain
Describes how resistance training in rats increased myofibrillar ATPase activity in the different muscles involved during the climbing activities
Scanning probes & biology research
The role of scanning probe electrochemistry in biological systems
Understanding the signaling pathways and molecular components of sperm using stopped-flow
Professors Kaupp and Strünker report a 16µl consumption but the volume per experiment has been reduced to 3µl in other applications.
Stopped-flow down to -90°C
By coupling the SFM-series to a cryostat, the operating temperature limit can be decreased to -90°C allowing the chemical reaction to slow down more than 3000 times.
Imaging the electrochemistry of photosynthesis
How is scanning probe electrochemistry applied to the investigation of photosynthesis?
Diffuse reflectance CD using an integration sphere
Circular Dichroism is one technique to determine enantiomeric purity and it can be applied directly on solid samples.
A new approach to circular dichroism
As a result of a cutting-edge design, the MOS-500 delivers the highest levels of precision for any instrument on the market, but also reduces running costs significantly because nitrogen is rarely needed during experiments
50 µl of sample is all you need for a series of stopped-flow experiment!
Reducing sample consumption in stopped-flow experiments has always been a high priority as the cost of samples (proteins, peptides etc.) can equate to hundreds or thousands of dollars per milliliter.
