Get the best of both worlds: Coupling advanced multi-detection with UPLC for faster and more detailed polymer analysis

Multi-detector GPC/SEC offers superior information about polymers, including absolute molecular weight, size, and structure, when compared with conventional single-detector measurements. At the same time, UPLC offers a step-change in the resolution and speed of polymer separations, using small columns and particle sizes to achieve high plate counts. Previously these two techniques have been incompatible due to band-broadening and dispersion effects that take place as narrow UPLC peaks pass through multiple detector cells.The latest enhancements to Malvern Panalytical's OMNISEC REVEAL detector platform now bring these two class leading technologies together. Combining the information-rich data from multi-detector GPC/SEC with the speed and resolution afforded by UPLC (Water's ACQUITY APC).

This webinar will briefly describe advanced detection and UPLC, and discuss how these two technologies have been brought together. Application examples will be provided showing how this data really can be generated in just a few minutes.

Gel Permeation Chromatography


Mark Pothecary studied biochemistry while an undergraduate at the University of Bath before moving to London to obtain his Masters and PhD the William Harvey Research Institute, part of the Queen Mary College between 2002-2006. There he studied the biochemical effects of red wine polyphenols on the production of nitric oxide in blood vessels and the subsequent control of blood pressure.

Mark joined Malvern in 2008 as a product technical specialist for the Zetasizer Nano and Viscotek products concentrating on bioscience SEC applications. He is now the Americas Product Manager for our chromatography products.
