Malvern to Sponsor Hands-On Short Course at Colloids Conference
News Jul 08, 2009
Materials characterization company Malvern Instruments is the sole sponsor of the pre-conference short course being held on 5-6 September 2009, ahead of the 23rd annual conference of the European Colloid and Interface Society (ECIS 2009, 6 – 11th September, Antalya, Turkey).
The course will give up to 30 participants hands-on application experience in rheology, zeta potential and dynamic light scattering measurements relating to surfactant and polymer self-assembly.
Entitled 'Self-assembly of Surfactants and Polymers: Fundamentals and Application', the one and a half day course will include 10-12 hours of lectures given by surface chemist and colloid expert, Professor Bjorn Lindman, from the University of Lund, Sweden.
To ensure the course includes reliable and engaging application experience for participants, Malvern is supplying Kinexus rotational rheometer platforms and Zetasizer Nano systems for hands-on sessions.
There is a growing demand in both medical and materials science for increasingly accurate, yet straightforward, methods to study the behavior of colloids and measure multiple particle interactions. Malvern’s new Kinexus rheometer and rSpace software user interface opens up reliable methodology and procedures for characterizing the rheological properties of colloids while sample properties available for measurement with the Zetasizer Nano system include particle size, molecular weight, and zeta potential.

For the first time, scientists have been able to measure a specific molecule indicative of osteoarthritis and a number of other inflammatory diseases using a newly developed technology. This preclinical study used a solid-state nanopore sensor as a tool for the analysis of hyaluronic acid.READ MORE
A New Class of GlassNews
Lightning and volcanos both produce glass, and humans have been making glass from silicon dioxide since prehistory. Industrialization brought us boron-based glasses, polymer glasses and metallic glasses, but now an international team of researchers has developed a new family of glass based on metals and organic compounds that stacks up to the original silica in glass-forming ability.READ MORE
