The new OMNISEC GPC/SEC system from Malvern Instruments
UK-based Malvern instruments has launched a completely new permeation/size exclusion chromatography (GPC/SEC) platform that it says “breaks new ground” in delivering the high performance, ease of use and productivity demanded in today’s analytical laboratories.
The new ‘Omnisec’ platform integrates highly efficient sample separation and high sensitivity analysis and has applications for wherever there is a need for detailed analysis and understanding of natural or synthetic polymers, proteins and macromolecules.
GPC/SEC is a two-step analytical process that involves separating a sample on the basis of its size and then analysing the resulting fractions. The technique delivers molecular weight, molecular size and structural information, all of which define the performance of many industrially important materials.
Malvern says by coupling efficient sample separation with fully optimised, multi-detector, information-rich analysis, it has produced a market-leading solution for researchers and formulators developing novel natural and synthetic polymers, pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products.
