Applied Photophysics is a leading provider of systems and accessories for the biophysical characterization of biomolecules. Headquartered in Leatherhead, Surrey, UK, the Company has been established for more than 40 years.
The SX-range of stopped-flow spectrometers, used to monitor changes in absorbance and fluorescence during fast biological reactions, is acknowledged globally as the gold standard for kinetic studies.
In 2005, the Company introduced the first Chirascan™ system, using the phenomenon of circular dichroism (CD) to characterize changes in the higher order structure of proteins. Since then, the company has continued to incorporate its in-depth knowledge and understanding of CD into a range of Chirascan products that are used in cutting-edge research and to support the development of innovator drugs and biosimilars in the biopharmaceutical industry. Compared to conventional CD instruments, the new generation of Chirascan systems ensures that every scientist gets the most from every CD analysis.
