Buffers A proper ionic environment is crucial as this parameter will influence the stability of the nucleic acid and modulate the interaction between a cationic ligand and a negatively charged DNA or RNA. The ionic strength and nature of the salt will also modulate the Tm. The cation will be condensed around nucleic acids, which are negatively-charged polyelectrolytes. There is a near-linear relationship between Tm and the logarithm of salt concentration, reaching a plateau around 1 M salt. 15 M salt (NaCl, LiCl or KCl).

The buffer sensorgram is then subtracted from the sample sensorgrams. “Double referencing” removes the systematic drifts and shifts in baseline, and is helpful to minimize offset artifacts and also to correct the bulk shift that results from slight differences in injection buffer and running buffer (27). In some instances, at low concentrations, in which the response does not reach the steady-state, the equilibrium responses can be obtained from kinetic fits of the sensorgrams utilizing the known RUmax from the higher concentration sensorgrams.
