Expert Insight: Benefits of MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry for Polymer Analysis

Register now to find out how MALDI-TOF could enhance your QC or R&D lab's Polymer analyses

03 May 2019


For QC and R&D labs working with polymers, knowing the molecular weight, repeating units and end groups of the polymer sample is vital, while monitoring incoming goods for impurities is important for sample quality. 

Compared to other analytical methods, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry can retrieve more structural information of polymers in a single, straightforward and rapid direct measurement – avoiding lengthy gradient and method development associated with traditional LC methods. 

In a forthcoming webinar, titled Polymer Analysis Using MALDI TOF, expert Dr. Volker Sauerland explains the benefits of the technique and how it can enhance your QC or R&D lab’s polymer analysis. He’ll also explore fast QC methods and direct measurement of various polymers; how complex mixtures can be readily analyzed with TLC-MALDI; and how spatial distributions of polymers can be probed with MALDI imaging.

In particular, you will learn about:

  • The applicability to different polymers
  • The speed of MALDI analysis
  • The information content for structural characterization of polymers

Who should attend:

  • Managers/staff of QC labs in the applied markets
  • Managers/staff of R&D labs in the applied markets
  • Group leaders/staff of academic labs

The live webinar will take place on Monday, May 20, 2019 at:

  • 15:00 BST
  • 10:00 EDT
  • 07:00 PDT
  • 16:00 CEST
