title Introduction

NT.115Pico The Monolith NT.115Pico system ultilizes MicroScale Thermophoresis technology (MST) to measure the changes of the mobility of fluorescently labelled molecules along a temperature gradient. The mobility of a molecule is dependent on its size, shape, charge and hydration shell. By adding serial dilution of non-labelled binding partner, the instrument obtains equilibrium binding constant, KD. Because of its high sensitivity, the quality of sample solutions is also easy to monitor.
