Fields & Applications Sample Preparation

Accelerating the deformulation workflow for oral solid dosage forms

In this white paper we examine the deformulation workflow, demonstrating the value of the technique of Morphologically Directed Raman Spectroscopy (MDRS) within this context. Case studies illustrate the relevance of MDRS data.

Fields & Applications Sample Preparation

Measurements of absolute molecular weight of synthetic polymers

In this application note, we'll describe the successful molecular weight measurement of a polystyrene, PMMA and PVC sample using the OMNISEC system. This instrument can accurately measure the absolute molecular weight of any polymers independent of elution volume or structure. Although the measurements here have been performed using simple polymers, these methods can be applied to any polymer measured by GPC.

Fields & Applications Sample Preparation

Optimizing Small Volume of Block Co-Polymers Used for Enhanced Oil Recovery

Read how DLS-based optical microrheology can be used to determine the rheological behavior of polymer solutions and the impact of tracer particle chemistry on the measured microrheological response.
