Last year we asked you to tell us about your most interesting or challenging Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) / Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) sample and why it presented such a challenge. For instance, if you’ve made two polymers which should be different but you can’t tell apart; or have polymers that are so small you don’t have the sensitivity to measure accurately.
The top 3 submissions that presented the biggest challenge to our new OMNISEC advanced GPC/SEC system would be awarded with a full sample analysis along with a prize of …

Multi-detector SEC – 10 reasons why protein scientists need one
In a previous post I listed the top ten reasons why a polymer characterization scientist might want to upgrade to multi-detector Gel Permeation Chromatography/Size Exclusion Chromatography, but there are similar points to be made as to why a protein characterization scientist might do the same.  We often focus on the benefits of our own systems but sometimes we may miss the benefits of the basic technique.
