Understanding the behavior of proteins under different conditions is fundamental in several application areas such as biopharmaceuticals and health research. One parameter that can be used to understand protein behavior is absolute molecular weight (Mw). Knowing the molecular weight of a protein in monomeric form enables you to track that protein’s behavior such as dimerization and monitor the stability of your protein sample under different conditions by detecting aggregation. This application note will demonstrate how using the new concentration trends feature, a user can accurately calculate the absolute Mw of molecules in solution, and how this Mw value can be useful for detecting behavioral changes such as self-assembly in a protein sample.
