Malvern Instruments is showcasing new analytical tools for biopharmaceutical applications on its exhibition booth at The Bioprocessing Summit in Boston from 19-23 August 2013 www.bioprocessingsummit.com.
The Viscotek SEC-MALS 20 from Malvern Instruments will be on show at The Bioprocessing Summit in Boston
In July the company launched two new systems, the Viscotek SEC-MALS 20 and the Viscosizer 200, for the characterization of biological materials. These join Malvern’s rapidly growing range of analytical instruments, which also includes the Zetasizer Nano ZSP, for use in pre-formulation and formulation studies and for the wider characterization of proteins and other macromolecules.
Viscotek SEC-MALS 20 is the new addition to Malvern’s range of detectors for size exclusion chromatography (SEC) and extends its family of light scattering detectors for measuring the absolute molecular weight of proteins, macromolecules and polymers. This range now includes cost-effective options with unsurpassed performance for every type of light scattering detection – low angle, right angle and multi angle – allowing Malvern to answer every SEC challenge with the most appropriate technology. By combining a Viscotek SEC detector or system with the powerful and intuitive OmniSEC software, it is possible to characterize: absolute molecular weight without extrapolation or correction, molecular size and intrinsic viscosity, as well as investigate branching, structure and aggregation in a single GPC/SEC experiment.
