Microdetermination of Phosphorus Using the SpectraMax Plus Microplate Spectrophotometer: Choice of Microplate, Cuvette, or Test Tube Assay Formats (MaxLine Application Note #24)
Most spectrophotometric methods for inorganic phosphorus (Pi) analysis are based on the color formed upon the reduction of a phosphomolybdate complex. The classic (and still widely-used) method is that of Fiske and Subbarow 1 , in which the reduction is c...
PathCheck Applied to Measurement of Protein Solutions in the SpectraMax Plus Microplate Spectrophotometer (MaxLine Application Note #26)
Protein concentration is commonly estimated by measuring the absorbance at 280 nm and calculating the concentration using the extinction coefficient of the protein. The procedure is feasible because extinction coefficients are typically obtained using sta...
