What’s on your ITC wish list?

1977 was a memorable year for many reasons – the first Apple II computers went on sale, the first MRI Scanner was tested, and for many the stand out event was the release of the first Star Wars movie.  What you may not know is that this was also the year that MicroCal was founded [...]

Understanding protein aggregation – the key to product quality & patient safety

I recently took part in a question and answer session with BioPharm International about techniques for measuring and characterizing protein aggregates. The full discussion can be viewed here, however I thought I would also use this blog post to summarize the main points. Essentially, there is a pressing need within the biopharmaceutical industry to understand [...]

On the mystery of nanoparticles in sucrose…

Back in 2008 we published an article on dynamic light scattering (DLS) from sucrose solutions. This was quite a project, as we had previously seen the effect of ‘solvent peaks’ yet never thoroughly investigated these. In the article titled “Measuring sub nanometre sizes using dynamic light scattering” we showed that a peak below 1 nm was indeed [...]
