White Paper: Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) – Expanding the Limits of Conventional Raman Analysis

White Paper: Expanding the limits of conventional Raman analysis with SERS

The advantage of SERS for the analytical chemist lies in its ability to detect analyte concentrations of parts per million and even parts per billion levels, while classical Raman is limited to parts per thousand. Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) – Expanding the limits of conventional Raman analysis Methods for...

RETSCH: CryoMilling for protein analysis

CryoMilling for protein analysis

Proteins such as DNA and RNA are problematic to extract due to temperature sensitivity. That’s where the CryoMill comes in! The CryoMill is tailored for cryogenic grinding. The grinding jar is continually cooled with liquid nitrogen from the integrated cooling system before and during the grinding process. Thus the sample...

Surfactants Analysis and Pharmaceuticals

Surfactants analysis and pharmaceuticals

Which titration suits your requirements best? Surfactant analysis does not follow the standard titration application profile. Anionic surfactant, cation surfactant, non-ionic surfactant, dual-phase titration; each has it’s own intricacy and fine-tuning. It is enough to make your head spin. Where do you start for the best analysis method? How do...

High standards require the most accurate analysis

High standards require the most accurate analysis

High standards require the most accurate analysis.  That’s where DIA stands apart from other techniques! Higher resolution, better sensitivity, and excellent reproducibility: this is how Dynamic Image Analysis (DIA) improves the characterisation of powders and granulates in both quality control and R&D. This white paper outlines how particle size distribution...
