Abstract
A comparative dynamic light scattering study of BSA and lysozyme is presented. A backscatter fiber optic system and a conventional light scattering spectrometer are used to measure the diameter of proteins in the dilute regime, that is, below concentrations of 10 mg/ml. The fiber optic system operating with a power level of 2 mW at a wavelength of 632.8 nm compares favorably with a conventional system operating with a power level of 40 mW at a wavelength of 514.5 nm. Quasi-elastic light scattering measurements taken at several concentrations demonstrate the utility of a backscatter fiber optic probe for sizing of small molecular weight proteins. The fiber probe, comprising two optical fibers, is about 3 mm in diameter and can be positioned either inside or outside the scattering cell.
