Biopolymer Characterization Core Seminar

This presentation will cover the principles of operation and theory of the methods; experimental design and sample requirements; examples of applications in the study of binding interactions of biological molecules and their thermal stability.  Light refreshments served. RSVP by 02/13/2020 to ernie.fox@malvern.com 

Test for binding affinity with ITC or thermal stability with DSC 

  • No label needed 
  • Done directly in solution 
  • Information you get from ITC: KD , stoichiometry...
  • Information you get from DSC: Tm ...

Some of the sample types that can be tested on the MicroCal PEAQ ITC and DSC: 


  • Protein, protein interactions 
  • Protein, small molecule interaction 
  • Protein, DNA and RNA interaction 
  • Nanoparticles, protein interaction 
  • Nanoparticles, DNA/ RNA interaction 
  • And more… 


  • Protein 
  • Nucleic acids 
  • Liposomes 
  • Virus or VLP 
  • And more…
