Laser Diffraction, Particle size »
Choosing the most appropriate dispersion method when characterizing materials using laser diffraction should depend on both the physical and chemical characteristics of your sample and the goal of the dispersion procedure. Two methods are available – wet dispersion and dry dispersion. Both methods have their own strengths, and both should be applied with care and consideration to ensure valid results.
So, before going any further, let’s just clarify what we are discussing here. During dry analysis, the sample being analyzed is injected into a clean compressed air stream within a venturi. …

Now firmly back in the UK, this is my final post about last week’s Pittcon activities. Not only was this one of the first occasions where people had the opportunity to learn about the Morphologi G3-ID, Pittcon was also a launch pad for the new Zetasizer µV with OmniFACE and OmniSEC, a new SEC-LS (size exclusion chromatography – light scattering) detector package dedicated to protein analysis.

Malvern Events, Particle shape »
Since the first Malvern webinar in April 2001, our live and subsequent on-demand presentations have been viewed more than 100,000 times. In an average working week, that equates to around five views every hour!
I’m Rosie Guise, Online Marketing Campaign Manager in the UK for Malvern Instruments and I am one part of the team responsible for Malvern’s online marketing. My colleague Marisa Fraser, Marketing Communications Manager for the Americas has been a driving force behind Malvern webinars since their inception, and we have seen the program evolve from literally no …
Just listening to some of the conversations on our booth at Pittcon this week, it’s so great to hear the enthusiasm not only of the scientists we meet but also of our own technical sales and applications specialists, who care so much about the products Malvern develops. One of our most exciting new technologies – the Morphologi G3-ID – was on show for the first time at Pittcon 2011 and we persuaded Kevin Dahl to face the cameras and tell us more.
The Morphologi G3-ID integrates automated size/shape analysis of particles …
Malvern Events »
Well, the first day of my first ever visit to Pittcon 2011 has been completed! The event has lived up to its reputation of being a global meeting point for the analytical instrumentation industry. If there is a measurement you need to carry out, then there is probably a technology on offer within the Pittcon exhibition to achieve it. Just make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes if you’re planning on visiting Pittcon to check out what is on offer. Seeing every booth will require a lot of walking!
As I …

I will be heading for Atlanta next week, home amongst other things to a rather well-known soft drinks company and a major television news channel. More importantly for me, it’s the venue for this year’s Pittcon Conference & Expo, which takes place at The Georgia World Congress Center from 13-17 March. I very much hope I’ll have the chance to meet some of you there on Malvern’s booth #1127. What’s more I was delighted to discover that you can download a mobile app for free at http://www.pittcon.org/attendees/mobileapp.php – so I …Read the full story »
As someone who is new to the blog, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Mark Pothecary and I am product technical specialist for the separation sciences product line at Malvern Instruments. My background is biochemistry and here at Malvern I develop nanoparticle characterization and size-exclusion chromatography (SEC) applications – also referred to as Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC). You may already be familiar with my webinars about advanced multi-detector SEC and technical applications.

In February I had the opportunity to speak at a series of seminars in …
Particle size, Tech Talk »
Welcome to my first blog. I’m Steve Carrington, product marketing manager at Malvern Instruments for our range of rheology instruments. Whilst I wouldn’t consider myself to be a rheologist by training, my university research was involved in assessing microstructural changes in complex fluids that ultimately give rise to the fascinating bulk deformation and flow properties that such systems exhibit. Take for example stable paints and smooth chocolate, which as well as being perfect ingredients for a weekend of decorating, are also systems of scientific interest; just two of the myriad …Read the full story »
