Don’t subtract – add! 3D printing at Malvern

As Malvern Instruments were sponsors at this year’s Malvern Festival of Innovation, Andrew Brock and I were invited to give a talk at the Advanced Engineering & Manufacturing symposium.  We chose to talk about additive manufacturing (AM) – more commonly known as 3D printing – and the impact it has had on design and production at [...]

256 Shades of Grey

Greetings from the Malvern development labs! You may have seen that we have recently launched Hydro Sight, an imaging accessory for the Mastersizer range. This is a very exciting time for us (and not just because they’ve given us some cake and snazzy green t-shirts to celebrate…) – Hydro Sight is the first  product of [...]

Tips & Tricks for Nanoparticle Characterization

A few days ago we hosted a live webinar titled “Nanoparticle Size Characterization: Tips & Tricks with the Zetasizer Nano.”  This seems to have been a topic of interest for many of you, since – with apologies – I did not get to answer all the questions coming in at the end of the presentation.  [...]

What is optical microrheology?

Rheology is concerned with understanding how materials flow. A traditional mechanical rotational rheometer measures the rheological properties by applying a stress to the sample and detecting the response to that applied perturbation in various geometries (for example ‘cup and bob’, or ‘cone and plate’). More recently, microfluidics allow access to the ultra-high shear rate regime [...]
