Wyatt Technology

Biopharmaceutical companies use light scattering instruments in their R&D, Formulations, QC, and Manufacturing settings in compliance with FDA regulations.


Just as many world leading pharmaceutical companies strive to improve the quality of human life by developing novel drugs, Wyatt Technology has continued to strive to provide pharmaceutical and biotechnology research scientists with state-of-the-art light scattering and characterization tools. Wyatt has provided scientific tools to help such companies as Merck, Pfizer and other vaccine manufacturers worldwide to better characterize their polysaccharide and virus-like particle vaccines as well as protein products.

The DAWN family of instruments has been used to study a wide variety of protein-protein interactions and protein aggregation phenomena. Many biotech products use Wyatt instruments to characterize recombinant proteins such as clotting or growth factors, antibodies, or special polysaccharides used in ocular surgery like hyaluronic acid. Genentech and Amgen were among the first Wyatt customers in the biotech industry.

These and many other pharmaceutical companies use Wyatt instruments in Discovery, Product Development, Formulations, QC, and Manufacturing settings in compliance with FDA regulations.

Wyatt Technology is the recognized leader in light scattering instrumentation and software for determining the absolute molar mass, size, charge and interactions of macromolecules and nanoparticles in solution.

Wyatt's line of multi-angle static light scattering products couple to size exclusion chromatography (SEC-MALS), field-flow fractionation (FFF-MALS), and stop-flow composition-gradient systems (CG-MALS). Our dynamic light scattering (DLS) products operate in traditional cuvette as well as on-line and automated, high-throughput modes. We also offer unique instruments for electrophoretic light scattering (MP-PALS), differential refractometry, and differential viscosity.
