New Viscotek Product Pages Integrated Into Malvern Instruments Website
(Nanowerk News) The integration of new Viscotek product pages within the Malvern website highlights how gel permeation chromatography/size exclusion chromatography (GPC/SEC) technology enhances the company’s ability to deliver insightful, information-rich material characterization solutions for the broadest range of industries.
Market-leading Viscotek GPC/SEC systems provide size and absolute molecular weight distribution, structural information and, for copolymers/conjugated proteins, compositional data, for a diverse range of natural and synthetic polymers, bio-molecules and proteins. For protein scientists the fit with Malvern’s Zetasizer dynamic light scattering technology is especially productive, while for the polymer industry, synergy with the rheology portfolio brings added value. Application experts support users in exploiting complementary techniques to maximise the return on analytical spend.

Far more than simply a show case for the company’s extensive range of analytical instrumentation, the Malvern website has a collection of industry pages that illustrate how different techniques address the issues of specific user groups. It is also the hub that underpins the company’s exemplary customer support. With a comprehensive webinar programme, brainshark presentations that explain and educate, and case studies that demonstrate deliverable benefits Malvern leads the way in application focused service. Testimonials relating to every aspect of the company’s performance provide compelling evidence of the success of this approach.

About Malvern Instruments
Malvern Instruments provides a range of complementary materials characterization tools that deliver inter-related measurements reflecting the complexities of particulates and disperse systems, nanomaterials and macromolecules. Analytical instruments from Malvern are used in the characterization of a wide variety of materials, from industrial bulk powders to nanomaterials and delicate macromolecules. A broad portfolio of innovative technologies is combined with intelligent, user-friendly software. These systems deliver industrially relevant data enabling our customers to make the connection between micro (such as particle size) and macro (bulk) material properties (rheology) and chemical composition (chemical imaging).
Particle size, particle shape, zeta potential, molecular weight, chemical composition and rheological properties measurements are now joined by advanced chromatography solutions (GPC/SEC), extending Malvern’s technologies for protein molecular weight, size and aggregation measurements, and synthetic polymer molecular weight and distribution. The company’s laboratory, at-line, on-line and in-line solutions are proven in sectors as diverse as cement production and pharmaceutical drug discovery.
Headquartered in Malvern, UK, Malvern Instruments has subsidiary organizations in all major European markets, North America, China, Korea and Japan, a joint venture in India, a global distributor network and applications laboratories around the world.
