Malvern Instruments takes 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 main interest of the conference is the separation and characterization of large molecules. The target audience includes specialists from analytical chemistry, polymer science, and life-science communities.
Malvern is a sponsor of the conference so keep an eye out for us at our booth. In addition, Bernd Tartsch, Product Applications Specialist for Separations at Malvern will speak about ‘How molecular weight and branching of polymers influences laser sintering techniques and light scattering techniques’ and a poster written by John Duffy, Product Technical Specialist for Rheometry, that discusses ‘Using microrheology to fully characterize the dynamic spectrum and viscoelastic properties of natural and synthetic macromolecules in solution’ will also be presented.
Malvern will also exhibit from its range of solutions for the separation and characterization of large molecules. This range includes Viscotek gel permeation/size exclusion chromatography (GPC/SEC) systems that measure absolute molecular weight, mass, size, concentration and the molecular structure of proteins, polymers and other macromolecules, and Zetasizer instruments which apply dynamic light scattering to measure particle size, zeta potential, protein charge and molecular weight, providing critical information about stability or aggregation. Following the launch of a new Zetasizer instrument last year, which included additions to the software, dynamic light scattering technology can also be used to make microrheology measurements with the Zetasizer Nano ZS and Zetasizer Nano ZSP instruments.
More information about Viscotek and Zetasizer products can be found on the Malvern website, or find us at the SCM-6 conference to talk about them in person!
