Exploring the impact of particle characteristics on suspension rheology
 
This white paper examines the impact of particle properties on suspension viscosity, and more broadly on rheological behavior. It looks in some detail at how particle size, shape and zeta potential influence critical aspects of suspension performance such as viscosity and stability and how these properties can be manipulated to tailor rheological behavior.
 
 
 
Sophisticated antibody analysis by GPC/SEC multichrome light scattering
 
A multidetection GPC/SEC method including UV, RI and Light scattering can be used for the simultaneous determination of aggregate content of monoclonal antibodies and antibody fragments using a single column set.
 
 
 
How good is on-line zetapotential measurement in water treatment?
 
The Aurora Water treatment facility is using zeta potential as both an off- and on-line tool for monitoring and controlling the water treatment process. Results show how on-line technology can reduce chemical usage costs and simplify process operation, delivering further gains in energy consumption.
