Malvern's Viscotek TDAmax wins praise from polymer scientist
25 July 2011 00:00 in Scientific Company News
Malvern Instruments has received a positive testimonial for its Viscotek TDAmax gel permeation chromatography system from a leading scientist.
Professor Kenneth Wynne, of the department of chemical and life science engineering at Virginia Commonwealth University, has been using the Viscotek device for 11 years in the study of novel surface modifications for polyurethanes and other polymers.
The professor's team selected the Malvern system based on its versatile functionality and strong accompanying customer service offering, with the scientists describing the decision as an "easy choice".
Researchers at the university have been able to utilise the system to create polyurethane molecules with antimicrobial coatings, which can be used in biomedical applications for woundcare or in vivo medical devices.
"Good value and excellent performance is a combination that will warm the heart of any academic polymer scientist," said Professor Wynne.
Last week, the manufacturer agreed a licensing deal with UK-based life sciences firm Paraytec to utilise its ActiPix technology in its materials characterisation portfolio.
