I know this sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but in this case, it was actually the beginning of the 2017 Colorado Protein Stability Conference, held in July at Beaver Run Resort in Breckenridge, Colorado. In attendance was a range of scientists and researchers from all over the world, with one common subject in mind: Protein Stability.

One of the highlights of this conference was the pre-conference workshop. This was a free workshop for all attendees of the conference, which was sponsored by Malvern Panalytical. The workshop included a range …

Greetings, Materials Talks readers, from sunny Palm Springs in beautiful Southern California! I wanted to update you on the wonderful conference Malvern has attended here: “Peptalk – The protein science week.”
Peptalk, held each January, is dedicated to the fields of protein and peptide therapeutic development. This year’s event attracted over 1,200 attendees from all over the world. Presentations were divided into seven pipelines covering everything from protein and antibody development, formulation stability, purification and aggregation, all the way to facilities design, manufacturing and packaging.
Malvern was one of 80 suppliers vying …

Greetings Malvern Blog subscribers, and welcome to May 2013. I want to start my second blog of the year off for you with a simple question.
When you look at the current array of Light Scattering based instruments for chromatographic detection of the molecular weight and structure of a protein do you cringe with fear? Is LALS better or worse than MALS? Should your system have one detection angle or 20? Do I want SLS, DLS, both, or simply neither!! Is triple detection better than just light scattering for proteins?
When it …

Webinar about the characterization of proteins

Greetings to the Malvern materials talk subscribers. As this is my first edition to the blog-o-sphere here at Malvern, I would like to start off by introducing myself. My name is Matt McGann, I am a product technical specialist and scientific adviser for Malvern Instruments based is sunny Southern California. My area of speciality is characterization of proteins and nano materials using dynamic light scattering (DLS) and chromatography technologies.
I wanted to take the opportunity to address those of you interested in how the Zetasizer nano systems can be used to …
