Archimedes

Archimedes is a new, highly innovative instrument from Malvern which uses the technique of resonant mass measurement to detect and accurately count particles in the size range 50nm – 5µm, and reliably measure their buoyant mass, dry mass and size.

Particularly useful for the characterization of protein aggregates in formulation or buffer, Archimedes is also able to distinguish between proteinaceous material and contaminants such as silicone oil by means of comparing their relative resonant frequencies and buoyant masses.
