Application Notes
Protein Molecular Weight Determination: SECMALS vs Conventional Calibration
In this application note, a number of proteins are separated using SEC. Their molecular weight is measured by multi angle light scattering (MALS), or by conventional calibration. The differences in results are discussed. Pepsin and BSA oligomers are characterized by the SEC-MALS system.
Five ways that the Mastersizer 3000 saves you money
Instruments must meet certain practical criteria and stand-up to rigorous economic evaluation. For analytical labs that need particle sizing, laser diffraction systems are typically the technology of choice. We look at how the Mastersizer 3000 particle size analyzer from Malvern Instruments can save you time, money and resources, delivering return on investment.
How to Ensure Analytical Accuracy and Reliability with an Inert Flow Path
An inert sample pathway is critical for accurately quantifying low levels of active samples that are common in today’s analytical applications. Regulations and smaller sample sizes have placed utmost importance on getting accurate results quickly without instrument downtime. Read this application note to learn how inert coatings improve analytical performance.
