Malvern Instruments compares metal powders from different atomization processes using automated image analysis
| By Malvern Instruments
Image analysis is an ideal tool for characterizing the size and shape distributions of atomized metal powders. The manufacture of complex shaped metal parts by Metal Injection Molding (MIM) is a growing industry. The shape and size of metal powders play an important role in determining process efficiency and properties of the final MIM components. Spherical powder particles are typically favored by MIM manufacturers looking to achieve best tolerances and properties in final components. Therefore, it is important to monitor atomized powder to ensure that particles of the desired shape and size are produced.

Malvern Instruments Discusses GPC/SEC Analysis of Polymer Solutions Used in Inkjet Printing
| By Malvern Instruments
Inkjet printing of polymer solutions is an area of interest for depositing precise, high-throughput patterns of functional polymer. The applications of the polymer patterns include OLEDs, organic circuits, and textiles. The efficacy of this printed pattern can be negatively impacted by the concentration and viscosity of the polymer solution, the molecular weight and molecular weight distribution of the polymer, and level of branching in the polymer. Therefore, it is of keen interest to understand the effect of inkjet printing on the degradation of polymers. In this application note, the molecular weight (MW) and molecular weight distribution (MWD) of various polymers is shown as a function of time during inkjet printing. The data shown in this application note is from references [1-2].

Malvern Instruments Explores Nanobubble Applications and Characterization
| By Malvern Instruments
Malvern Instruments conducts an in depth review of ultra-fine bubble (nanobubble) applications and characterization examples. The generation, measurement, and applied technologies of so-called nanobubbles or ultra-fine bubbles, with diameter ranging from tens to hundreds of nanometers, are evolving dramatically in recent years. The unique properties of nanobubbles makes them attractive for a number of applications such as facility cleaning, food disinfection, and water treatment, as well as possibilities in fields such as disinfecting food products, pharmaceutical delivery, decontamination, and manufacturing of functional materials. Preliminary market research conducted by the Fine Bubble Industries Association shows the size of the fine bubble business increasing from USD 20 million in 2010 to USD 4.3 billion in 2020.

Measuring the Rheology of Polymer Solutions
| By Malvern Instruments
Polymers are versatile materials that play an important role in a diverse range of industrial applications. Polymeric solutions or suspensions provide joint lubrication in the human body, make foods appear rich and creamy, and impart stability to inks and paints. In these and many other applications the rheological characteristics of the polymer solution have a defining influence on product performance and functionality.

Minding your Caps and Tails – Considerations for Functional mRNA Synthesis
| By New England Biolabs
Applications of synthetic mRNA have grown and become considerably diversified in recent years. Examples include the generation of pluripotent stem cells (1-3), vaccines and therapeutics (4), and CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing applications (5-7). The basic requirements for a functional mRNA - a 7-methylguanylate cap at the 5´ end and a poly(A) tail at the 3´ end - must be added in order to obtain efficient translation by eukaryotic cells. Additional considerations can include the incorporation of modified bases, modified cap structures and polyadenylation strategies. Strategies for in vitro synthesis of mRNA may also vary according to the desired scale of synthesis. This article discusses options for selection of reagents and the extent to which it influences synthesized mRNA functionality.

Monitoring Pharmaceutical Products with Tabletop SEM
| By Phenom World
In the pharmaceutical industry, pharmaceutical dosage forms are getting increasingly important as a basis for making more effective drugs. In the successful development of a new dosage form, formulation development typically plays a crucial role in the introduction and application of state of-the-art pharmaceutical technology. The manufacturability and/or bioavailability of many of these dosage forms regularly depend on the characteristics of the individual ingredients. It is for this reason, that it is extremely important that the bulk characteristics of so-called particulate systems such as powders and suspensions can be accurately monitored.
