Product Overview
MOS-500
Circular dichroism spectrometer MOS500.

CD spectropolarimeter specifically optimized for both steady state and rapid kinetics applications. The CD spectrometer guarantees excellent performance: sensitivity, precision, speed and modularity from far-UV to NIR region.

Circular Dichroism.

Circular Dichroism (CD) is by far the most commonly employed chiroptical technique for the characterization of biomolecules and the analysis of chiral substances. For example, the far-UV Circular Dichroism spectrum of proteins can reveal important characteristics relating to their secondary structure such as the percentage of alpha helix, beta-sheet or beta-turns conformation, when near-UV, will provide information about the direct surrounding environment of the chiral chromophores.

Visible and NIR-CD spectroscopy is a useful technique to study metal-protein interactions and to resolve individual d–d electronic transitions, but has also proved to be a highly performant tool for enantiomeric excess determination in asymmetric synthesis.

 

A modern spectropolarimeter.

The MOS-500 is a spectropolarimeter optimized for steady state and rapid kinetics applications. The circular dichroism spectrometer delivers outstanding performance in sensitivity, precision, speed and modularity from far-UV to NIR region. Optics and technology have been chosen to ensure that no wavelength range is discriminated. The MOS-500 uses an innovative patented three stage wavelength selection system to bypass the limitation of prism-based monochromators. The Biokine software platform also ensures a great user-experience and provides high-performance tools for the analysis of chemical and thermal denaturation of proteins.
