Malvern will feature a new range of particle characterization and rheology systems, and a new Viscotek chromatography product, at Pittcon 2009. Malvern’s Kinexus rotational rheometer, Zetasizer APS and Zetasizer µV particle characterization systems, and a new application for the Morphologi G3, will be on display. The launch of a new detector for the Viscotek TDAmax gel permeation chromatography system also celebrates the first anniversary of Malvern’s acquisition of the company.
Malvern’s Kinexus is a rotational rheometer platform. It incorporates technological innovations in rheometer design, from sample preparation and loading, through measurement set-up and operation, to data analysis and reporting. Adaptive intelligence allows Kinexus to actively guide users at every stage.
The Zetasizer APS, a dynamic light scattering system, automates size measurements of samples in 96- or 384-well microplates. Designed for protein specialists, the system is fully automated, requiring users to insert the plate and press start. It allows for investigation of a protein’s condition at different stages of the purification process, and at later stages of formulation under a range of environmental conditions.
The Zetasizer µV is an advanced light scattering system intended for the characterization of proteins and other biomolecules. Requiring just two microlitres of sample, it enables measurement of as little as 40 nanograms of BSA (bovine serum albumin) for example. This system supports improved understanding and management of a wide range of biomolecule applications.
A new capability for the Morphologi G3 particle characterization system enables the fully automated detection, enumeration, and size classification of foreign particulate matter collected on a filter. Traditionally this has been the preserve of manual light microscopy. Now the Morphologi G3 brings fully automated image analysis to accelerate characterization and remove any operator subjectivity.
