MicroScale Thermophoresis (MST Service) is a biophysical technique that measures the strength of interaction (affinity) between two molecules by detecting variations in fluorescence signal as a result of an IR-laser induced temperature change. The range of the variation in the fluorescence signal correlates with the binding of a ligand to the fluorescent target. By that it allows for quantitative analysis of molecular interactions in solution on the microliter scale with high sensitivity. This page gives an overview of the MicroScale Thermophoresis (MST) method. You can find information on the core technology and typical applications of MST. Also detailed information on labeling and fluorescence requirements and the central advantages of the method are given.
