  1. Let The Molecule Decide
    11/2/2017

    Formulation techniques and technologies can easily become more habit than science, but a single technology does not work for all compounds. Each new drug is unique and deserves a fresh approach to formulation.

  2. Keeping Your Cool When Storing Purified Protein
    1/19/2017

    The study of proteins and their function is central to understanding biology, but separating and purifying single proteins from complex mixtures is hard work. After investing the time to purify your target protein using various chromatography methods, losing your protein integrity because of improper storage would be devastating. Good storage conditions are particularly important if you need your protein for several downstream studies. You might need to store your preparation for an extended period of time, and some experiments require that the protein retain its original structure, binding affinity or enzymatic activity. Here we discuss some quick and simple suggestions relating to concentration, additives, sample size and storage temperature to consider when storing your protein for future use.
