The company has acquired a new Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC), Multi-Angle (Laser) Light Scattering (MALS) instrument to accurately measure the size and composition of large molecules. This technology replaces several manual testing methods, including viscosity, electrophoresis and chromatography retention times. It provides an absolute measure of molecular weight for molecules 10 to 1,000 nm in size.
“Having SEC-MALS provides Dalton with a specialized capability that supports large molecule products which are a growing part of our business,” said Peter Pekos, chief executive officer of Dalton. “We are constantly expanding our service offering to better meet the evolving needs of our customers. This is an example of how Dalton keeps up with the latest technologies in order to deliver the most efficient services.”
