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 …

Did you miss our webinar in February? If so, I’m here to help you catch up!
The Masterclass 1: Laser Diffraction Explained
This webinar will introduce the basic principles behind the technique, explaining how a laser diffraction measurement is carried out, how particle size distributions are calculated, some of the differences which exist between laser diffraction and other techniques for particle size analysis, and example applications of laser diffraction.
The importance of size reduction and agglomeration processes in the mining, minerals, and metals (MMM) industries
Size reduction and agglomeration are two of the important …

Few weeks ago, we told you that Malvern Instruments will take part at the 6th International Symposium on the Separation and Characterization of Natural and Synthetic Macromolecules (SCM-6) at the Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden e. V.
The SCM-6 provided a very good platform to bring together all the polymer and bio chemists that are especially interested in the different possibilities for characterization of their polymers.
As modern polymers are getting more and more complicated regarding their chemistry and structure the challenges for analytical tools increases in the same manner. Therefore the …

Hello, my name is Chuck Rohn and I’m based in US where I’m application consultant, I would like to invite you to join the webinar will present tomorrow.
The cross-over modulus is a single point on a material’s viscoelastic spectrum. If we put too much importance of the one material property, we lose sight of all the information surrounding it. It is kind of like focusing in only one tree in the forest and not seeing the beauty of its surroundings.
The value of thinking outside the box is to expand our …

Keen followers of Malvern news will remember the announcement of an ongoing partnership between Malvern Instruments and International Innovation Technologies, IIT Ltd. Well now we’re ready to take our relationship to the next level and announce a joint webinar! Entitled “IIT and Malvern Instruments: partners in the innovation of compact energy efficient milling and classification solutions” the webinar will focus on the role of real-time particle sizing solutions in milling and classification applications.
A match made in heaven
IIT specialises in the design and manufacture of powder milling and classification technology. Our …
I was reading in New Scientist (November 10th, 2012 page 5) of the discovery of a red star identical, it appears, to the star Superman’s home planet, Krypton. Red dwarf LHS2520, discovered by astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson (Yes! What a name!), is 27 light years from earth and the right, size, color, and distance to fit in with the Superman legend. This got me to thinking, as I stared into the heavens that weekend, as to how tiny we are in relation to the size of the universe. Yes, I …Read the full story »

Despite the fanfare, guidance documents from ICH and the world’s regulatory agencies, a plethora of conferences, much discussion on various social media sites and a good number of examples for QbD implementation, there is little published about where industry really stands with regards to adopting and implementing QbD.
So, it was very interesting to read the FDA’s more robust stance for full implementation of QbD, by the generic pharmaceutical industry, when filing an abbreviated new drug application (ANDA). As the much anticipated January 2013 deadline looms, is the generic pharmaceutical industry …

Last week I attended my first conference as a Malvern employee. I have been to many conferences before, of course, but all of them based on physics. This conference is the annual drug delivery to the lung conference DDL. This is something I really love about my job. My background is very much physics but I get to interact with chemists, biologists, medical researchers, mineralogists you name it.
I’ve actually been to Edinburgh twice before this visit, on both those occasions I was running the Chris Hoy Half Marathon. Edinburgh is a great …

At Malvern, the launch of a new product is always an exciting time. With our stated goals of growing into the biopharmaceutical market to satisfy their development needs, the launch of a product to help us achieve this goal is particularly so.
That’s why we’re so excited about the upcoming launch of Archimedes. Archimedes is a novel system that can count particles in the size range of 50 nm to 5 µm using the technology of Resonant Mass Measurement (RMM). RMM delivers true size distributions based on the buoyant mass of …

As one of the rheologists here at Malvern, I thought you would like to know about one of the slightly unusual questions I was asked recently by a customer: ‘What is the sign of a good rheologist?’
Maybe my initial answer wasn’t the one that the customer expected, but it made me smile……it’s the rheologist’s “badge of honour”, also known as how a rheologist earns their stripes! This is a true sign of a practical rheologist, although technology (for the better) is starting to make this less apparent.
To explain, we need to …
