GPC/SEC Triple Detection Allows Comprehensive Analysis of Biomaterials
News May 14, 2010
Researchers at the NMI (Natural and Medical Sciences Institute) of the University of Tubingen in Germany are using the Viscotek TDAmax GPC/SEC triple detection system with Omnisec software, both from Malvern Instruments, in their analysis of biomaterials.
Mixtures of different polymers and biopolymers are used in the production of the degradable biomaterials that are the foundation of modern carrier matrices for regenerative medicine. With such applications in human medicine, comprehensive GMP- and GLP- compliant quality control of such polymer blends is becoming increasingly important.
The chromatographic separation of different polymer components using SEC and subsequent triple detection provides an opportunity to obtain a comprehensive picture of the molecular weight and molecular size of different polymers in a single step.

Biochemists, microbiologists, drug discovery experts and infectious disease doctors have teamed up in a new study that shows antibiotics are not always necessary to cure sepsis in mice. Instead of killing causative bacteria with antibiotics, researchers treated infected mice with molecules that block toxin formation in bacteria.READ MORE
