[10 Jan 2017 | ]

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 …

MDRS Technology
Finally!  After what has felt like one of the wettest and longest winters in memory here in the UK, we’re now heading into the long, mellow days of midsummer.
But casting its miserable shadow over the barbecues, school holidays and paddling pools is the dreaded allergy season.  As one of the downsides of life in our “green and pleasant land”, during June we are hit hard by the combined impact of pollen from trees, grasses and weeds.
Many of us are now taking a daily antihistamine of some sort, and others …

[25 May 2016 | ]

We’re lucky here at Malvern Instruments to have a large number of customers and collaborators who are happy to share their experience of using our technologies for an ever-expanding range of applications.  Some co-write peer-reviewed papers with us, others help us create application notes, whitepapers and customer stories, and some choose to present webinars as part of Malvern’s webinar program.
We love seeing how our instruments are put to use solving real-wold problems, and the comments we receive from our customers suggest we’re not the only ones!
It’s been a bumper couple of months …

Q: What’s the connection between scientific meetings and buses?
A: You seem to wait forever for one, and then they all arrive at the same time.
I know: not exactly worthy of a stand-up routine, but isn’t it true?
It does seem as if conference season is well and truly underway now, with a real glut of meetings over the coming weeks (and actually, the coming months, as well!).  We at Malvern love being on our travels, second only to meeting with and chatting to our customers – and if we can include …

Biopharmaceutical Witchcraft and Wizardry at MiBio 2012

Eye of newt…
I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself: I’m Lisa Newey-Keane – brand new Biopharmaceutical Product Manager at Malvern Instruments.  I say “brand new”, but I’ve been working away feverishly behind the scenes for a couple of months already.
Over the years, most of my experience has been gained in the contract manufacturing and research industries.  From a first degree in Marine Biology I progressed to a PhD in Microbiology and Protein Chemistry, then spent a few years at Lonza and Novozymes, where I used mass spectrometry amongst …
