Protein Analysis Tools: Characterizing Secondary Structure Analysis Of Insulin
Secondary structure characterization is an essential part of drug development, however, the tools for measuring secondary structure of small proteins and peptides are limited. Microfluidic Modulation Spectroscopy (MMS), a new characterization platform that powers the AQS³pro system developed by RedShiftBio, measures protein secondary structure by combining infrared spectroscopy with microfluidics to enhance sensitivity and accuracy.
