We present a rapid method for protein tertiary structure analysis which avoids the need for techniques such as circular dichroism and differential scanning calorimetry. Small changes to a protein's noncovalent "soft" structure are detected by exploiting differences in thermal stability and fluorescent reporter binding. It can detect subtle stability differences using micrograms of protein in 2 mu L volumes within minutes.
