One of the most commonly asked questions from our customers is the topic of shear rates and what to expect when dealing with various applications. Now most of you have a general idea on what shear rate means, but we want to take it one step further and illustrate several key components when dealing with shear rates.
We hope that everyone's last week of march is nothing short of positivity and growth. It has been an extremely busy month (& that's not a complaint) for most of us! And of course increasing productivity often yields the best results, right?
Hello! We are pleased to announce that we are releasing a major software update for the VROC® Initium, software version 1.4.1. This software update includes a new user interface (UI) and the ability to export databases.
We hope everyone is doing well as we reach the half-mark of 2018! It is no wonder that May and June tend to be extremely busy, as many of you are preparing for vacation or travel. Make sure to wear sunblock and other preventative measures to keep you from excessive heat & direct exposure from UV rays!
In the upcoming weeks, we are proud to announce the release of our latest application note regarding concentration dependence in protein viscosity. In this app note, Dr. Stacey Elliott gathered viscosity data for Bovine Gamma Globulin (BgG) formulations over the full concentration range, including therapeutic levels ≥ 100 mg/mL, using the VROC®Initium. The solution buffer included sucrose which is a common additive to enhance stabilization during freeze-drying and storage. Relative viscosity versus concentration curves were fit with the Ross-Minton equation which is a frequently used analysis tool for protein formulations.
