Cutting Edge Women Use Cutting Edge Instruments

October 18, 2016 - If you were watching the Today Show on Monday, October 17, 2016 you would have seen at least one segment not related to politics. In fact, “Cutting Edge Women”, is a regular part of the Today Show. As you might guess, it’s about influential women and this episode featured Anne Wojcicki, the founder and CEO of 23andMe, a genetic testing company in the Bay Area of California. 23andMe is also of greater interest to Wyatt Technology because Anne Wojciki’s company is a customer of our technology.

Chemistry Nobel Prize Awarded to Sir James Fraser Stoddart

October 5, 2016 - Wyatt Technology congratulates its customer, Sir J. Fraser Stoddart of Northwestern University on sharing the Nobel Prize in Chemistry today with Bernard L. Feringa and Jean-Pierre Sauvage. They have developed molecules with controllable movements, which can perform a task when energy is added. We are delighted to see their work on nano-motors recognized as the building blocks for future molecular machines. Some of Professor Stoddart’s publications using our DAWN instruments may be found in our Bibliography.

Highlights: Light Scattering Reveals Novel Applications of DNA

March 29, 2016 - Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is an amazingly versatile molecule thanks to its unique structure and stability. Encoding and passing on to subsequent generations all inheritable genetic information, the DNA molecule plays a well-known, pivotal role in the biological world. However, DNA has also been the subject of cutting-edge research in fields outside the usual scope of genetics and biology, from nanotechnology and nanoelectronics to drug delivery and even optogenetics, taking advantage of its highly customizable properties. Light scattering, of course, plays an important part in many of these studies.

The myriad applications of quantitative light scattering in the biological and biopharmaceutical sciences

March 28, 2016 - Actually too numerous to cover in a single publication, but Allen Minton of the Laboratory of Biochemistry and Genetics in NIH’s National Institutes of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases has done a spectacular job of critically addressing quite a few. His review article, “Recent applications of light scattering measurement in the biological and biopharmaceutical sciences,” appears in Analytical Biochemistry 501 (2016) pp. 4-22.
