QCM-D - Nanoparticle-protein interactions in real time
Q-Sense instruments monitor surface changes with patented QCM-D technology.
QCM-D stands for Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation Monitoring and measures the mass of molecular layers on quartz sensors while simultaneously determining structural (viscoelastic) properties. This reveals differences between similar binding events or conformational changes in bound layers and provides a profound understanding of molecular interactions and adsorptions.
