The Great Guinness Viscosity Challenge

Last year we did a nice Christmas blog on the viscosity of beer where myself and Steve Carrington took our Microfluidic rheometer (m-VROCi) down to our local pub to measure a selection of their traditional ales and correlate the results with drinking experience of course. Since then I have been asked a number of times [...]

PDI from an individual peak in DLS

Can one calculate a PDI value excluding a small aggregation peak? For example if the main particle species is ~100nm and there is a small contribution (2% by intensity) from a peak at 5 microns, is it possible to recalculate the z-average and the PDI ignoring the 5 micron peak. Alternatively, is it possible to [...]

Beady eyes on the prize at Pittcon

What an amazing time we had at Pittcon in New Orleans this year!  The folks who visited our booth were treated to not one, but two contests to enter for the chance to win Amazon gift cards. First, we challenged people to guess the number of ‘particles’ in the jar – we are the particle characterization experts after [...]

Perfecting Polymer Measurements: OMNISEC Q&A

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to present a live webinar through Chemical & Engineering News about how our latest solution for Gel Permeation Chromatography/Size Exclusion Chromatography (GPC/SEC), OMNISEC, can help our customers with their synthetic polymer applications. OMNISEC is a complete system for GPC/SEC measurements including a pump/degasser/autosampler module in OMNISEC [...]

PEAQ-ITC launch – your questions answered

We were very excited to launch PEAQ-ITC - our brand new range of Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC) instruments - a couple of weeks ago with a live demonstration.  If you missed the online event, please click here to play it back. During the Q&A session at the event, we were thrilled to receive so many questions about the new instrument.  [...]
