Proteins tend to passively adsorb to surfaces. The amount adsorbed depends on many factors such as the protein itself, the ambient conditions and the surface material. So how can the adsorbed amount at these various conditions be assessed? Here we show how protein adsorption can be quickly measured.
Adsorption and desorption phenomena are important to study in e.g. surface science and bio-related applications, where molecules are interacting with surfaces.
Proteins are vital for life and perform a wide range of essential biochemical tasks in all living organisms. It is important that the proteins are correctly folded and functional. However, sometimes the control mechanisms fail and accumulated aggregates transform into protein megastructures.
