Home > Press > First time at ACHEMA for latest systems as Malvern shows breadth of materials characterization range

A number of Malvern products will make their first ACHEMA appearances this year (11-15 May 2009, Frankfurt, Germany), with the company exhibiting on two stands, one focusing on analysis in the
laboratory and the other in the process sector.

First time at ACHEMA for latest systems as Malvern shows breadth of materials characterization range

Malvern, UK | Posted on March 24th, 2009

Recently launched and on display will be Malvern's Kinexus rotational rheometer, Zetasizer APS and Zetasizer µV particle characterization systems, a new application for the Morphologi G3, and a new photodiode array detector for the Viscotek TDAmax™ gel permeation chromatography system. On the process stand, visitors will be able to take tours of Insitec particle sizing systems using exciting new three-dimensional interactive electronic simulations.


Malvern's Kinexus is a revolutionary new rotational rheometer platform. It incorporates technological innovations in the most critical areas of rheometer design, from sample preparation and loading, through measurement set-up and operation, to data analysis and reporting. Adaptive intelligence allows Kinexus to actively guide users at every stage.

Zetasizer range

A new dynamic light scattering system, the Zetasizer APS automates size measurements of samples in 96- or 384-well microplates. Designed primarily for protein specialists, the system is fully automated, simply requiring users to insert the plate and press start. It allows quick and easy investigation of a protein's condition at different stages of the purification process, and at later stages of formulation under a range of environmental conditions.

Zetasizer µV

The Zetasizer µV is an advanced light scattering system specifically intended for the characterization of proteins and other biomolecules. Requiring just two microlitres of sample, it enables measurement of as little as 40 nanograms of BSA (bovine serum albumin) for example - an
industry leading specification. This dedicated system supports improved understanding and management of a wide range of biomolecule applications.

Morphologi G3 - foreign particulate matter

A new capability for the award-winning Morphologi G3 particle characterization system enables the fully automated detection, enumeration and size classification of foreign particulate matter collected on a filter. Traditionally this has been the preserve of manual light microscopy. Now the Morphologi G3 brings fully automated image analysis to accelerate characterization and remove any operator subjectivity.

Sophisticated GPC/SEC

The new photodiode array (PDA) detector for the TDAmax™ gel permeation chromatography (GPC/SEC) system from Viscotek, provides a powerful and flexible tool for the rapid analysis of both polymers and biopolymers. The PDA is ideal for the analysis of blends used to produce high performance polymers, and the product streams from complex copolymerisation reactions. Its many applications in the life sciences include identifying protein conjugates and complexes, aggregation and stability, and determining concentration ratios.

Malvern specialists will be available throughout the show to advise on your specific materials characterization challenges.

About Malvern Instruments
Malvern Instruments provides a range of complementary materials
characterization tools that deliver inter-related measurements reflecting
the complexities of particulates and disperse systems, nanomaterials and
macromolecules. Analytical instruments from Malvern are used in the
characterization of a wide variety of materials, from industrial bulk
powders to nanomaterials and delicate macromolecules. A broad portfolio of
innovative technologies is combined with intelligent, user-friendly
software. These systems deliver industrially relevant data enabling our
customers to make the connection between micro (such as particle size) and
macro (bulk) material properties (rheology) and chemical composition
(chemical imaging).

Particle size, particle shape, zeta potential, molecular weight, chemical
composition and rheological properties measurements are now joined by
advanced chromatography solutions (GPC/SEC), extending Malvern’s
technologies for protein molecular weight, size and aggregation
measurements, and synthetic polymer molecular weight and distribution. The
company’s laboratory, at-line, on-line and in-line solutions are proven in
sectors as diverse as cement production and pharmaceutical drug discovery.

Headquartered in Malvern, UK, Malvern Instruments has subsidiary
organizations in all major European markets, North America, China, Korea and
Japan, a joint venture in India, a global distributor network and
applications laboratories around the world.
