May 1, 2018 - Wyatt Technology, the world leader in instrumentation for absolute macromolecular and nanoparticle characterization, announces a number of changes to its executive team, effective immediately. Geofrey Wyatt has been named Chief Executive Officer and Clifford Wyatt will assume the role of President. Dr. Philip Wyatt, after almost 40 years following the founding of the company, will become Chairman of the Board and take on a far more passive role.

April 18, 2018 - In addition to synthesis and branching, copolymerizationwhether in random arrangements or orderly blocksserves as a powerful tool for polymer scientists in creating materials with novel, useful properties. As recently described in LCGC’s The Column, three-detector SEC-MALS-dRI-UV makes it easy to co-determine absolute molar mass and relative composition for many types of copolymers.

March 16, 2018 - Wyatt Technology congratulates its customers below on winning the 2018 Protein Society Awards. These awards “recognize excellence across the diverse disciplines that collectively advance our understanding of proteins, their structure, function, design, and application. The Awards honor researchers who have distinguished themselves with significant achievements in protein research and those who have made outstanding contributions in leadership, teaching, and service.”

March 13, 2018 - The Northeast US office was established in 2003 to give Wyatt Technology a much-needed physical presence on the east coast and has since grown into an integral part of our growing business. The location offers convenient access for regional customers to receive sales and service support, demos, LSU short courses and technical applications support. The office has a fully equipped analytical lab showcasing Wyatt’s complete lineup of instruments and also includes a number of complementary third party tools.

March 12, 2018 - Are all exosomes essentially alike? While proteomic, lipidomic and genomic content, as well as specific function, certainly vary with cell line and environment, common wisdom has held that the vast majority of bionanoparticles produced by cells generally have the same structure and pathway of generation. A tool for differentiating exosomes was needed in order to address this question.

December 18, 2017 - Dear Customers: Thank you for reaching out and keeping us in your thoughts while our region deals with the challenges associated with the Thomas Fire. While this wildfire continues to burn through portions of southern California, we thankfully report Wyatt Technology has not been adversely impacted. The air has been smoky but otherwise it’s business as usual. Unfortunately, not everyone in our region was as fortunate and so there’s a way you can help. A “Thomas Fire Fund” has been established by the United Way, American Red Cross and the California Office of Emergency Services to help those in need. Donations can be made through the United Way website at www.unitedwaythomasfirefund.org

December 15, 2017 - The centrality of multi-angle light scattering to polymer characterization is widely appreciated. SEC-MALS with a DAWN® is the gold standard for determining reliable, accurate distributions of absolute molar mass and rms radius, without having to rely on column calibration, reference molecules that don’t elute like your samples, and assumptions about ideal conformation and column interactions. But once you have mastered SEC-MALS, what’s the next stage? How to obtain even deeper understanding of your macromolecules? And what are your options if SEC-MALS does not work for some of your samples?

October 13, 2017 - Once again our remarkable customers, along with SelectScience®, have chosen to recognize the DAWN® as an icon of instrument quality and customer delight. This month the DAWN was awarded the SelectScience Gold Seal of Quality, just the second analytical instrument in a field of thousands to receive this status.
