As the only label-free measurement technique that can simultaneously determine all binding parameters in a single experiment, isothermal titration calorimeters (ITC) have become essential tools for drug design and the study and regulation of protein interactions.
However, Hart Scientific's Calorimetry Sciences Corporation subsidiary, which specializes in differential scanning and isothermal titration calorimeters for biochemistry applications, may not fit as well and could be divested at some later date.
