Life Tech Scientists Develop Protein Thermal Shift Assay for Real-Time PCR Systems | GenomeWeb

By Ben Butkus

MILLBRAE, Calif. – Life Technologies has developed and validated a protein thermal shift assay that allows users to conduct various proteomics studies on any Life Tech real-time PCR system, scientists from the company said this week.

The assay has the potential to facilitate drug discovery by measuring protein thermal stability, identifying suitable buffer conditions, and measuring protein-ligand interactions; and could open up a new market for Life Tech's real-time PCR systems.
