One of the most common questions users new to Circular Dichroism spectroscopy ask is how much sample they need—and how little they can get away with.

Generally, the simple answer is: it depends. There are a couple of different experimental conditions and constraints that affect sample requirements, and a number of interdependent parameters.

Use the interactive demo below to gain a better understanding of what the most critical aspects are of optimising CD measurements.
