Microcalorimetry


Characterizing the interactions and stability of biomolecules.

Microcalorimetry is used to study reactions involving biomolecules, including interactions between molecules and conformational changes such as protein folding. Applications range from confirming intended binding targets in small molecule drug discovery to the development of stable biotherapeutics.
