Having Issues with Protein Adsorbtion?

Protein adsorption, the nonspecific binding of protein molecules to solid surfaces, has always complicated the development as well as the commercialization of protein therapeutics. During research and development, proteins bind to different lab consumables such as microplates, storage tubes, pipette tips, and centrifuge tubes. During commercialization, proteins may bind to the primary container (glass or plastic vial) storing them. Fortunately, WHEATON has […]

What is a Liquid Scintillation Vial?

  Liquid Scintillation Counting is an analytical technique which measures the activity of radionuclides in a sample by the rate of light photons emitted by a sample. By measuring the amount and intensity by which a sample emits photons, it is possible to identify and quantify the radioisotopes present in a sample. As we all […]
