UV-VIS Absorbance and Protein Characteristics

One of the most common methods for analyzing protein characteristics and measuring protein purity in solution is to observe the sample’s absorption of ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths of light. Proteins that contain the appropriate amino acids are absorbent to light on the UV-spectrum, specifically light with peak wavelengths of 260 – 280 nanometers (nm). This makes.....Read Moreabout UV-VIS Absorbance and Protein Characteristics
