DLS easily explained: What it tells you about your protein

What you’ll learn in the webinar

Join this webinar to learn about the physical phenomenon that drives Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS), and see a few examples of how DLS gives you deeper insights into a protein’s behavior. 

What is DLS

DLS is a technology used to determine the size of particles in a solution, and the distribution of different sized particles. Information about particle size is highly valuable for researchers interested in knowing more about the biophysical characteristics of their proteins.

Why it’s important for protein research

Changing the environment of a protein of interest — whether by reformulating the buffer, making mutations, or adding compounds or excipients — can alter the size and stability of that protein. This allows researchers to draw powerful conclusions about how their proteins are behaving during storage, formulation, and assay development.
