Why should I upgrade to multi-detection GPC?

| Sponsored by Malvern Panalytical

10 reasons for polymer characterization scientists. Gel-permeation chromatography (GPC) is an essential tool for the characterization of polymers. It allows polymer scientists to tailor a polymer’s properties to its end use requirements by controlling its molecular properties, since the two are inextricably linked.

The Benefits of Multi-Detector SEC for Protein Analysis'

| Sponsored by Malvern Panalytical

This article explores how multiple detectors, particularly light scattering detectors, may be used for size-exclusion chromatography (SEC) in protein analysis. Using a light scattering detector as part of a multi-detector Size Exclusion Chromatography system provides the accurate molecular weight (MW) data needed to assess the activity, safety and clinical efficacy of therapeutic proteins.

Protein Applications for Advanced Multi-Detector Size-Exclusion Chromatography

| Sponsored by Malvern Panalytical

In this application note, a mixture of four proteins was characterized in a single SEC measurement using multiple detectors. The generally consistent response to the RI to proteins makes it a useful total protein concentration detector, while the UV detector can be used to measure the concentration of individual proteins when the extinction coefficient is known. This is particularly useful for proteins that elute in the solvent peak making RI measurements unreliable. Finally, light scattering measurements allow each peak to be identified by its molecular weight.

Solvent Enhanced Light Scattering Technique Enhances Gel Permeation Chromatography Analysis

| Chris Mirley, Sean Daughtry, Wei Sen Wong

The ideal solvent for a material may not provide a sufficient refractive index difference for light scattering detection. This example of a biodegradable polymer shows how SELS is used to increase dn/dc to give enhanced detection sensitivity

Case study: Effects of gamma-ray sterilization on high molecular weight

| Baljit Ghatora

A sample of PMMA was analysed by Size Exclusion Chromatography with Triple detection, before and after sterilization. Reduction in the molecular weight was shown to be firstly by cleaving the polymer at the branching points.
