The Durham pH Screen MD1-101
The Durham pH Screen includes 28 different buffers covering a broad pH range (4-11), and separates the effects of buffer chemistry and pH. We recommend it's use together with the Durham Salt and RUBICs screens to thoroughly understand the effect of protein environment on stability.
The Durham Screens are designed to work with NAMI* the free to download software for easy interpretation of thermal shift assay results.

The Durham pH Screen is presented as 96 x 0.5 mL conditions in a deep-well block. They are preservative free and it is recommended that they are stored at 4°C, however they can be used at room temperature for screen set-up.
*NAMI can generate waterfall plots of thermal shift data at multiple concentrations or plots of melting temperature against concentration. These differentiate a sudden increase in protein stability indicating a specific interaction and steady increases in stability due to the changing protein environment. In addition, it produces a useful colour gradient plate diagram to make identifying particularly stabilising or destabilising conditions simple.
