Protect your water company against a PR nightmare
In the last two years, companies in Asia have been fined for disposing of used industrial waste tainted with chemicals and heavy metals into the waters. In Vietnam, fish carcasses washed up on the beaches of Hà Tĩnh, many fishermen lost their livelihoods and needless to mention about water safety. While these companies have received fines, it is fair to say that waste management affects the public and ecosystem.
Malvern Panalytical supports companies with analytical solutions which ensure socially responsible disposal of used industrial water. …

Dynamic Light Scattering, Malvern Panalytical Events, Meet the Experts, Zeta potential, Zetasizer »

[15 Mar 2018 | ]

Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS), sometimes referred to as Photon Correlation Spectroscopy or Quasi-Elastic Light Scattering, is a technique classically used for measuring the size of particles typically in the sub-micron region, dispersed in a liquid. The sensitivity of some modern systems is such that it can also now be used to measure the size of macromolecules in solution.
In this new webinar, I summarise how the technique works, what its size and concentration limits are and discuss its advantages and disadvantages.
This webinar was well-attended and I received several questions, I thought …

This year will be the 19th Pittcon in a row that I have attended (there should be an award for that, right?). Actually, Malvern Panalytical did receive an award from Pittcon 11 years ago for our then 50th anniversary of attending the conference.  If you still have not made it to this annual gathering of the latest in laboratory equipment, educational courses and technical presentations galore, here are some reasons to consider heading to Orlando on February 26 (or Philadelphia in 2019):

[1 Feb 2018 | ]

For quality and process control many elemental analysis techniques are available. Let’s see how ICP, AAS, ICP-MS, ICP-OES and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) stack up are traditional techniques used in many industries. Each of these techniques has a number of advantages and disadvantages giving the analyst the flexibility to choose which technology suits best. When the required limits of quantification are above 1 ppm (µg/g), or when the non-destructive analysis is required, XRF is a very attractive technique that should be considered, especially when analyzing solids, powders, slurries, filters, and …

Lors du 52ème Congrès du Groupe Français de Rhéologie (GFR), Guillaume Ovarlez (Directeur de recherche au CNRS, Laboratoire du Futur CNRS-Solvay, Pessac, France) a reçu le prix Maurice Couette et présenté ses travaux sur les inhomogénéités dans les écoulements de suspensions concentrées pour lesquels des rhéomètres de la gamme Kinexus ont été utilisés.
https://partage.legfr.social/index.php/s/ug25vSvEfExKacE
Monsieur Ovarlez a notamment expliqué que la rhéométrie classique fonctionnait très bien dès lors que les matériaux étudiés sont homogènes et que l’écoulement et lui aussi homogène. Cependant la structure des suspensions et leur écoulement peuvent s’influencer.
Ainsi, les …

After a break of 4 years, it was great to get back to the Drug Delivery to the Lungs conference (DDL2017) in Edinburgh this year. After the snow and gales of previous years when I have visited it was rather quiet in terms of weather this year, but not in terms of content as this was varied and interesting. I caught up on some of the latest advances in inhaled device development targeting special populations, such as small children or critically ill patients. It was really exciting to see the …

Borate fusion, Claisse, Meet the Experts, X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) »

[19 Dec 2017 | ]

What is fusion?
You might already know that the choice of the sample preparation method for X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) or Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) atomic emission spectroscopy analysis is critical to obtain precise and accurate results with the spectrometer.
Have you ever heard about fusion? Let’s demystify this technique and have a look at its benefits when compared to pressed pellets.
What is it exactly?
Fusion for XRF analysis consists of mixing a ground sample with a borate flux (lithium or sodium) inside a 95% platinum / 5% gold crucible, heating around 1000 °C with …

A while ago I attended the mining conference Exponor in Antofagasta, Chile and found it to be an immense, mostly open-air display and the technical program aimed at keeping the South American mines informed of the latest solutions for all aspects of their industry. In and amongst the huge mining machinery and vendors of everything – from dust masks to helicopters – was Malvern Panalytical. One trend did emerge from the people we did get to talk to at this event – a common theme of looking for ways to improve efficiency. This …

The ASD FieldSpec 4 Hi-Res NG provides enhanced spectral resolution to support accurate calibration and image classification analysis.
Higher resolution hyperspectral sensors yield greater precision for remote sensing classification applications, producing more information from every pixel generated in an image than ever before. In order to take advantage of the full potential of these sensors, measurements from ground-based instrumentation need to meet or exceed the sensor’s spectral resolution. In the absence of this resolution equality, data are interpolated during post-processing; as a result, vital spectral information can be smoothed and lost.
The enhanced spectral resolution …

Binding affinity and Kd, Isothermal Titration Calorimetry, Meet the Experts, MicroCal, Microcalorimetry »

[12 Oct 2017 | ]

Isothermal Titration Calorimetry
Molecular recognition is key in all biological processes and cellular responses. It is critical to characterize the structural and thermodynamic forces behind the recognition and specificity of macromolecular interactions in order to understand the molecular events in a cell. Several biophysical techniques (including fluorescence, circular dichroism, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy, surface plasmon resonance, and microscale thermophoresis) are used to characterize non-covalent molecular interactions.
Isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) has become a popular and versatile bioanalytical method for the direct measurement of binding affinity between interacting molecules.  ITC instruments were …
