Particle size distribution (from 0.1 to 3500 microns) – (Equipment: Mastersizer 2000; Malvern Instruments)

The Mastersizer 2000 uses the technique of laser diffraction to measure the size of particles. It does this by measuring the intensity of light scattered as a laser beam passes through a dispersed particulate sample. This data is then analyzed to calculate the size of the particles that created the ...

Bulk density and powder packing tests (Equipment: Autotap; Quantachrome Instruments)

Each particle of a solid material has effectively the same true density regardless of size or shape, but more or less geometric space is occupied by the material according to the relative particle-particle cohesion and mechanical interference. That is, the apparent bulk densities of powdered, granular or flaked materials are ...

Measurement of biomolecular interactions in solution by Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC) (Equipment: VP-ITC; GE HealthCare-Microcal)

ITC is a thermodynamic technique that directly measures the heat released or absorbed during a biomolecular binding event (protein-small molecule, protein-protein, target-drug, enzyme-inhibitor, antibody-antigen, protein-DNA, protein-lipid, small molecule-small molecule). Measurement of this heat allows accurate determination of binding constants (KB), reaction stoichiometry (n), enthalpy (ΔH) and entropy (ΔS), thereby providing ...
