We will be exhibiting at the upcoming BioProcessing Summit Conference taking place at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
Recently, one of my customers brought up a concern that she had seen through other lab instrumentation during her experience in the lab. She asked how we deal with the particular evaporation effects of protein or other samples, especially when it comes to our VROC initium which handles 40 samples or up to 96 samples. So we put it to the test.
Outside of our current pictures or knowledge of the universe lies plasma which is comprised of electrons and nuclei. Due to the lack of knowledge, it is quite difficult to review the behavior of the plasma. However, scientists are aware that the plasma behavior indicates low viscosity behavior resulting in irregularities. Separately, depending on the positioning of the plasma along the magnetic field lines, speculation is that viscosity could vary.
Do you work in the biopharm or biotech industry? Do you work with proteins and currently measure protein viscosity or has the topic come up during conversations and meetings? Many of our customers reference our company not just for viscometers but for the various application notes that we have. We have a wide variety of application notes ranging from ink, oil, cosmetics, and all types of applications which you can explore here:
What happens when your samples are out on the sample tray for quite some time? When it comes to working with well plate or vial rack systems, your samples could be on the plate/rack for a long time prior to the measurement. As a result, we conducted some studies to see just how much evaporation effects occur specifically with our VROC® technology.
We recently took two commercially available cannabis oil cartridges used to refill cannabis pens and measured the viscosity. The two main differences were the variation in THC and CBD Oils. Sample 1 had 78% THC and 0.29% CBD content. Sample 2 had 80 % THC and 0% CBD.
