European cities and towns are invariably interesting from an historical perspective and I had the great opportunity to visit a few of these on my recent trip across the pond.
Partec 2013 was held as usual in the Ost part of the Nürnberg Messe. It’s a tri‐annual event with Powtec held every 18 months. Thus every 3 years there’s a big combined exhibition and technical program that also includes Pharmatech. This is always an ‘easy’ event for me because of the familiarity with the hotel (Arvena Park – where I once …

There is a wide range of commercially available particle characterization techniques that can be used to measure particulate samples. Each has its relative strengths and limitations and there is no universally applicable technique for all samples and all situations.
Which particle characterization techniques do I need?
A number of criteria must be considered when deciding which particle characterization techniques you need:
• which particle properties are important to me?
• what particle size range do I want to work over?
• are my samples polydisperse i.e. do I need a wide dynamic range?
• how quickly …
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 …

Hello every one, Debbie here- and just to update you all- I am now a Debbie Huck-Jones!
Well we are well into 2013 by now but if your new year resolution was to find out about new analytical techniques and you have not done anything about it yet, why not join me Tuesday 28th May for the first in our series of Imaging Masterclasses.
Maybe you are a laser diffraction user and would like to consider other options to complement that technique and help you better understand your products.
You may have to …

PROCESS magazine Vogel Media present the Innovation Award at POWTECH/TechnoPharm.
The award honors the most innovative equipment and processing in several different categories. One of them is: Particle/Material Analysis and Characterization. Since the award was established we applied now 5th time. Three of the four products we applied for so far, made it to the winners rostrum.
2007 we won with our first chemical imaging system.
2008 we made it to the shortlist of the best three with our Kinexus rotational rheometer.
2011 we won again with our Mastersizer 3000.
So expectations for 2013 have …Read the full story »

In 18 years with Malvern I organized close to 40 exhibitions. Some of you might think, I should now be quite relaxed about it. But this is still not the case. I am passionate about creating exhibitions that work, that engage visitors to talk to us and they convey the Malvern “spirit”.
Preparation is always a challenge: a lot comes at short notice and I am sure something has to change last minute and things come up you can’t control.
For this year’s Powtech it was the Lufthansa strike. People helping us …

Characterization of the Size and Molecular Weight and Oligomeric State of Proteins using the Malvern Zetasizer Systems in batch and flow modes
The Malvern Zetasizer series of instruments are well established for characterization of the size, molecular weight and oligomeric state of proteins in solution. This presentation discusses the capabilities and performance of the Malvern Zetasizer Nano and µV systems for these measurements. These systems also have the ability to measure those properties in both …
A rotational rheometer is required to enable a complete understanding of material flow and deformation behaviour for complex viscoelastic materials – from low viscosity polymer and surfactant solutions, through to suspensions and emulsions and high particle-loaded semi-solids such as pastes, and high viscosity polymer melts.
Such material types are commonly encountered across a wide variety of industries from personal care and cosmetics, paints and coatings, foods and polymer products, and it is often the material’s elasticity component that will strongly influence their processing and application behaviour.
Knowing a rheometer can help you …
At Malvern we take very seriously our responsibility to the local communities in which we operate, wherever we are in the world. In the UK this is something especially close to our hearts as not only is our company named after the town in which it was founded, it is where we have our global headquarters today. This means we have been part of the community in the town of Malvern, and the wider area of Worcestershire, for more than four decades.
Malvern Instruments as a company, and the individuals within …
