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.

March 9, 2018 - Frederic Violleau Ph.D., Professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Toulouse, discovered Wyatt instrumentation over 15 years ago, having first been introduced to the technology using a DAWN DSP. A few years later his lab completed their instrument suite by investing in an AF4 Eclipse II coupled with a DAWN MALS detector and Optilab RI detector. This investment made his lab one of the first French university laboratories equipped with Wyatt technology.

February 12, 2018 - Structural biology and SEC-MALS, go together like… horses and stalls? One might be tempted to make the analogy and rather unfortunate rhyme, especially in horse country. The University of Texas, Dallas is where Prof. Sheena D’Arcy has set her stake in the ground, and SEC-MALS is as essential to her work on protein structure, dynamics and function as, well, a horse is to a cowboy.

January 3, 2018 - This month, we are pleased to feature Jason Todd, a prolific user of SEC-MALS at Polymer Solutions, Inc. But rather than writing about Jason’s work and relationship with Wyatt, we think he tells it best in his own words. Be sure to read to the end and find out about Jason’s rather unusual hobby and family! “Polymer Solutions Incorporated (PSI) is a privately-owned contract testing laboratory focused on analysis of polymers and polymer-based products, comprising three labs. The Applied Chemistry and Spectroscopy (ACS) Lab performs a lot of classical wet chemistry methods, dilute solution viscosity, FTIR, NMR, titrations, and ICP-OES.
