Möbiuζ (Mobius) light scattering instrument from Wyatt Technology is the first-of-its-kind, capable of performing consistent, repeatable, and non-destructive electrophoretic mobility measurements of macromolecules down to 1nm in dilute solution conditions.
Electrical charge is an essential characteristic of all macromolecules. The stability of colloidal suspensions relies upon the amount of electrical charge generated at the interfaces between the particles and their solvent. Electrostatic interactions largely affect the conformation, function, and efficacy of biomolecules such as proteins. Electrophoretic mobility has been widely recognized as a proxy for the molecular charge and interfacial potential (zeta potential).
The following are the key features of the Mobius Light Scattering Technology:
- Designed to measure the mobility and the hydrodynamic radius of expensive protein samples non-destructively
- The technological developments integrated in the Mobius can tackle the challenges involved in these delicate nanoparticles, thus providing unique capabilities for traditional applications.
