New and Updated Technical Notes

New! TN2008 – Interpreting the Autocorrelation Functions in DYNAMICS Rev A
The autocorrelation function (ACF) is the primary data stream from DLS measurements. Consequently, it is critical to verify the quality and fit of the ACF before any size information can be interpreted. This technical note will provide information about what a good ACF looks like and provide examples of various ACFs and what they might indicate for respective experiments. Suggestions for improving data quality are also provided.

Updated TN3505 - Performing SEC-MALS Experiments with ÄKTA FPLC Systems Rev B
The GE ÄKTA FPLC systems are designed for preparative protein work. Therefore, special considerations pertain to using them for analytical applications such as SEC-MALS experiments, including modifications to standard procedures with ÄKTA hardware and Unicorn software.

New! TN5000 - Tips for Better Viscometry Measurements Rev A
The ViscoStar instrument, when paired with a concentration detector, can measure intrinsic viscosity of a dissolved macromolecule. The measurement requires flow, and is assumed to be used with chromatography. To ensure the best quality of data, this technical note will describe a set of tips to ensure the optimal viscometry measurements.

Updated TN6005 - FFF Method Development Quick Start Guide for Aqueous Applications Rev B
