For many products, the size and molecular weight distributions have a huge impact. They affect the viscosity of solutions, the adsorption properties, influence uptake, and many other properties. For technical applications, the control of microgels and particulates in samples is often required. These may otherwise interfere with the functionality or the visual properties of the product.
At SOLVE we use DLS, SEC-MALS, AF4-MALS and AUC to determine particle size and molar mass distributions. We work with everything from small peptides and proteins, up to large polymers, polysaccharides, and nanoparticles.
