Viscotek SEC-MALS 20 Multi-angle Light Scattering Detector

September 26, 2013

The Viscotek SEC-MALS 20 multi-angle light scattering detector measures absolute molecular weight and size (Rg) of proteins and polymers. Its 20 detector array and vertical flow cell ensure exceptional accuracy.

The Viscotek SEC-MALS 20 brings new standards of performance and greater choice in gel permeation/size exclusion chromatography (GPC/SEC) and. Malvern’s Viscotek range now includes cost-effective, high-performance options for every type of light scattering detection – low angle, right angle and multi angle – allowing Malvern to answer every GPC/SEC challenge with the most appropriate technology. With this extension to its detectors range, Malvern becomes the only vendor to offer all light scattering options.

The Viscotek SEC-MALS 20 has more detectors than any other commercially available MALS system for GPC/SEC. This increased level of detection, particularly at lower angles, gives the best possible data fit for extrapolating molecular weight and size, with gains in accuracy, even at high molecular weights. A vertical flow cell with radial optics gives increased sensitivity and accuracy for low angle detection. Different mobile phases can be used without altering the detector’s optical properties.

The Viscotek SEC-MALS 20 detector is compatible with any commercially available SEC instrument, is available as a standalone unit or integrated into Viscotek GPC/SEC systems and runs with OmniSEC software.
