Virtual Method Optimization and Size Analysis for FFF
Flow-field flow fractionation (flow-FFF) offers highly versatile separations for the analysis of complex fluids, covering a size range of macromolecules and particles from 1 nm to 10,000 nm. However, flow-FFF is often perceived as a difficult technique to learn because of the multiple parameters available for adjustment.
Our new SCOUT DPS® software simulates flow-FFF from basic physical principles, enabling the virtual optimization of flow-FFF methods and opening up the power of flow-FFF separations to non-experts. SCOUT DPS also analyzes particle size distributions (hydrodynamic radius) by elution time to increase characterization capabilities. This publication in The Column explains how it works. http://www.chromatographyonline.com/field-flow-fractionation-virtual-optimization-versatile-separation-methods-0.
