Product News: Malvern Shows Two New Systems at 2012 AAPS Annual Meeting & Exposition

10 Oct 2012

Malvern Instruments’ new Zetasizer Nano ZSP and Morphologi G3-ID systems, both launched in the past month, will be on show on Booth #3230 at the 2012 American Society of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Annual Meeting & Exposition in Chicago from 14th to 18th October 2012 as part of Malvern’s portfolio of analytical solutions for pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical applications.

Launched in September, the Zetasizer Nano ZSP brings unique protein measurement and novel microrheology capabilities to the established and market-leading Zetasizer range of dynamic light scattering (DLS) systems. The Zetasizer Nano ZSP is a single, compact unit that shares the simplicity and ease of use that have made Zetasizer Nano systems a firm favourite in industry and academia for almost a decade. It adds unique performance specifications for both size and zeta potential measurement, one of the most significant applications being for the measurement of the zeta potential, or electrophoretic mobility, of proteins.

On 2nd October 2012, following the completion of a highly successful early access program, Malvern launched the Morphologi G3-ID particle characterization system to the global market. The Morphologi G3-ID combines automated particle imaging with the chemical identification of individual particles using Raman spectroscopy. It is a fully automated system that measures particle size, shape and chemical identity in a single platform and is ideally suited to solving complex particle characterization problems where particle size and shape do not provide sufficient information. Key applications for which it is proving especially valuable are in determining component-specific particle properties of mixtures and blends, such as the particle size of drug ingredients in nasal sprays and asthma inhalers, and in the identification of unknown or suspicious particles in injectable or parenteral products, for example.

Malvern specialists will be available throughout the event to discuss individual products and applications so visit Booth #3230 to find out more!
