The Viscotek SEC-MALS 20 is a multi angle light scattering detector that can be used to measure the absolute molecular weight of proteins, synthetic and natural polymers, as well as molecular size expressed as the radius of gyration, Rg.
The Viscotek SEC-MALS 20 is a modular multi angle light scattering detector that can easily be used with any existing SEC system, adding the power of light scattering detection for molecular weight and molecular size measurements. It can also be purchased as part of a complete system package. The signals from the SEC-MALS and other detectors connected to the system are analyzed by the most advanced GPC software available, OmniSEC.
The SEC-MALS 20 can be used to measure the absolute molecular weight and oligomeric state of proteins, independent of retention time. It can also be used to analyse natural and synthetic polymers, including the measurement of molecular size over the widest possible range.
The SEC-MALS 20 is part of a range of Viscotek light scattering detectors offering maximum choice of system from a single supplier.
Up to 20 angles for more accurate results Measure absolute molecular weight and Rg Can be combined with any existing SEC system A single powerful software package to control the system and analyse data - OmniSEC Vertical flow cell with advanced radial optics for improved performance Stable and sensitive low angle detectors improve accuracy Small footprint
Grant to Fund Million Peaks Project The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a prestigious Advanced Grant to Prof. Peter Schoenmakers, Prof. Albert Polman and Prof. Huib Bakker, all three of whom work at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). Altered Metabolism of Four Compounds Drives Glioblastoma Growth Findings suggest new ways to treat the malignancy, slow its progression and reveal its extent more precisely.Why Bearcats Smell Like Buttered Popcorn Researchers pinpoint chemical compound that gives rare animal its popcorn-like scent.Human Gut Microbiome Evolution Westerners have a less-diverse gut microbiome compared to hunter-gatherers, but how and why these microbe collections diverged has largely remained a mystery. Potential Diagnostic for Dengue Fever Scientists from Colorado State University have explored the use of small molecules in patient serum for diagnosis of dengue fever and potentially predicting progression to the severe disease.Non-Destructive Sensing of Fish Freshness Is there any reliable way to know whether frozen fish is fresh or not?‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.Portable Kit Can Recover Traces of Chemical Evidence A chemist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed a portable version of his method for recovering trace chemicals such as environmental pollutants and forensic evidence including secret graves and arson fire debris.Diagnosis of Two Rare Childhood Diseases Improved For the first time, researchers have developed tests that could improve the diagnosis of two rare childhood diseases known as congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDGs) and metachromatic leukodystrophy, and that could even lead to new treatments for CDGs.
