Beckman Coulter delivered the first AUC sample characterization tool to the scientific community powering discoveries. The tradition continues into the 21st century with the new Optima AUC system. This latest offering is the most robust technology for providing protein molecular weight in basic protein research and quantification of aggregation levels for academic and biopharma research.
Analytical ultracentrifugation is the most versatile, rigorous and accurate means for determining the molecular weight, hydrodynamic and thermodynamic properties of a protein or other macromolecule. Currently, there is no other technique capable of providing the same range of information with a comparable level of precision and accuracy.
