  Chemistry and Biotechnology - Fluence - Protein and Polymerization Rate Analyzer

Protein and Polymerization Rate Analyzer
ARGEN, by Fluence Analytics, adds another powerful tool to the arsenal of biopharmaceutical and polymer scientists. This static light scattering instrument measures the pharmaceutical stability of therapeutic proteins and peptides and the quality of natural and synthetic polymers. The instrument is composed of 16 independent cuvette sample cells capable of precise control of thermal, chemical and mechanical stress. By continuously monitoring the state of its samples, the lab instrument provides continuous, kinetic data yielding early detection of aggregation, degradation and particle formation under independently controlled stressor conditions.
Main Features:
icon 1. Swap in and out a sample from any cell without affecting the others.
2. Control the thermal, mechanical and chemical stressors for each cell.
3. Constantly monitor and reveal the kinetics of the sample evolution.
4. Test high and low sample concentrations with its large dynamic range.
5. Test sample volumes ranging from 30μL to 3.5mL.
6. Early detection of aggregation, degradation and particle formation.
7. Calculate molecular weight and virial coefficients with absolute light scattering measurements.
Standard Certification:
icon Mw/Mo:
Continuously evolving size of molecule with relation to initial, pre-stressed, molecule size.
Aggregation Rate: AR=d[Mw/Mo]/dt
Time dependent Aggregation Rate in terms of Mw/Mo of which a sample undergoes any change in molecular size
Mass Aggregation Rate: Mass AR=d(Mw)/dt
Time dependent Aggregation Rate in terms of g/mole of mass added to the weight average Molecular Weight of a scatterer.
