Latex standard larger than on the bottle?

Three methods to verify dynamic light scattering systems
If you are a meticulous researcher you may want to test your new Zetasizer. Is it really providing the correct size? One of the advantages of dynamic light scattering is that there are no tweakable adjustments, it is all physics: laser wave length, scattering angle, refractive index of the dispersant are all known in advance and are given parameters for the optical setup and sample. Nevertheless, it is a good idea to check and verify the performance of the system. One of the …

Food and Drink Joint Seminar – Malvern PANalytical

To support the growing interest in Malvern PANalytical technologies for use in the food and drink industry, we held a joint free seminar devoted to this extremely important industry sector. This took place on Wednesday, June 8th in the Marriott Hotel Schaumburg, Chicago and saw more than 20 enthusiastic attendees from the food industry attend for an applications-focused set of presentations stressing the importance of Malvern PANalytical’s  complementary analytical techniques and the value they add to this sector.  We kicked off with a ‘Deluxe Continental Breakfast’ as befitting the attendees.

Personally, I must say that this was …

Laser diffraction, and Sieving: The comparison – Q&A

I recently presented a webinar exploring the practical aspects of sieving method – the advantages and disadvantages.  I compared the method to other techniques such as laser diffraction indicating the increased wealth of information that can be obtained with these more modern instrumental techniques and the common pitfalls and assumptions of the screening technique.
More than 800 of you registered for the webinar and I received a large numbers of interesting questions which I have been working steadily through. I thought it would be a good idea to share the questions and answers via the blog, so here they …
