Applications Thursday: New Reference Article using the PHERAstar for fluorescence anisotropy measurements

In a recently published article in the Journal of biomolcular Screening, the PHERAstar equipped with a fluorescence polarization Optic Module was used for anisotropy measurements:


A High-Throughput–Compatible Fluorescence Anisotropy-Based Assay for Competitive Inhibitors of  Escherichia coli UDP-N-Acetylglucosamine Acyltransferase (LpxA)


The article was written by Adam B. Shapiro, Philip L. Ross, Ning Gao, Stephania Livchak,
Gunther Kern, Wei Yang, Beth Andrews, and Jason Thresher from AstraZeneca R&D Boston, Waltham, MA, USA.
