The article provides information on Fluorescence Polarization (FP), a homogenous assay used to monitor biomolecular interactions. It explains how FP works and discusses the reasons for using it to investigate molecular interactions. The article also mentions the most common areas of investigation benefiting from FP. The benefits that are being offered by FP to researchers in both life sciences and high throughput screening are presented, as well.
