Analytical Ultracentrifugation Background:

Problem Solving using Analytical Ultracentrifugation

Analytical ultracentrifugation is a powerful biophysical technique that can be used to answer a large range of questions frequently encountered in modern biochemical research. The UltraScan Database Portal website is offered to users of the UltraScan software to provide public database access and provide free LIMS service.

There are two major experimental techniques performed by analytical ultracentrifugation, sedimentation velocity and sedimentation equilibrium experiments. For more information about either technique, please select the following links:

In order to help you identify potential targets for AUC experiments in your research, we have assembled a list of commonly encountered scenarios in biological research that can be addressed with AUC. In an effort to determine the best approach towards your AUC research needs, we have developed this web site, which will help you identify the most suitable service option and experimental design for your situation.
