The accurate measurement of the phosphate content of a liposomal suspension is important when working with differential scanning calorimetry. Standard phosphate tests date back several decades and require extended hands-on time. Here, we present a rapid version of a phosphate test taking advantage of microwave-assisted chemical digestion and multiwell plate reading technology allowing for the fast and accurate testing of many samples in parallel.
