Method Abstract: "Here, [investigators] utilize a novel technique, ultrafast-scanning fluorescence correlation spectroscopy [FCS], to measure the molecular interactions and full coexistence curves (binodals), which quantify the protein concentration within LAF-1 droplets."
Comments Supplementary information p.13 caption to Fig.S6 (a): "The measured binodals are recast in terms of volume fractions. Here, [investigators] calculated Flory interaction parameters, χ, converted from B2 values and calculated protein volume fraction using average amino acid density ~1310.16 mg/mL." Better ref needed
