Viscosity flow curve

Why measure a viscosity flow curve, rather than just give a number?
 

Very often chemists are asked to provide a single viscosity value for a product or formulation without much information about the required conditions of the measurement.  For an oil or low viscosity liquid which is Newtonian this is pretty straightforward, so long as your viscometer is properly calibrated and the measurement temperature is provided. However, most industrially interesting or complex fluids such as polymer solutions, suspensions and emulsions are non-Newtonian, meaning that their viscosity varies with shear rate – …

Electrophoretic Mobility – Tips for proteins

Electrophoretic mobility measurements from proteins: How to protect proteins in an electric field
 
What is the protein mobility mode?
When applying an electric field to a sample containing protein molecules, there are a few considerations to take into account to avoid “over-stressing” delicate biomolecules. The force a charged object experiences in an electric field is proportional to its charge times the electric field. Therefore the electric field strength (defined by the applied voltage divided by the distance between the electrodes, in V/cm) is more relevant than the absolute value of the applied …

Customer Spotlight: How Malvern Instruments helped KBI Biopharma find a clear commercial advantage

At Malvern, we love hearing stories from our customers about how they use our technologies to help them better understand and control their products. From time to time we are going to share some of these stories in a feature we have entitled “Customer Spotlight”.
Our very first Customer Spotlight is from Amber Fradkin of the Particle Characterization Core Facility at KBI Biopharma in Boulder, CO. Amber received her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering within the Pharmaceutical Biotechnology Program, with a specialization in the field of immunogenicity of therapeutic protein aggregates, at the University …
