Microscopy

It lets us eye otherwise inaccessible tiny structures, and has done so for centuries now. But in recent times microscopy has also made headway into analytics. FTIR and RAMAN microscopes, for example, can obtain spectroscopic data for chemical imaging. Their chemical composition is ascertained by comparison with database entries or reference substance results. The obtained data can be related to surface structures with the help of 3D computer illustrations based on data from microscopic sensors.

  • Field-Flow Fractionation - The Universal Separation Principle for Particle and Macromolecule Characterization

    High molecular weight polymers, bio molecules or particles in a range of a few nanometers up to several microns are more and more important in science and technology. Many applications are based on the specific properties of these materials. For this reason, an exact knowledge of the molar mass or particle sizes distribution is essential for later application as well as for optimization of the production processes or quality control. In addition the knowledge about the chain structure of macromolecules or biopolymers as well as about the shape of particles is often necessary. For this reason those samples, which often can be very complex systems, have to be separated according to parameters such as e.g. hydrodynamic volume or molecular weight. After the separation process the resulting narrow dispersed fractions are detected with different techniques. more

  • Particle shape - an important parameter in pharmaceutical manufacturing

    The advent of rapid and reliable measurement technologies, together with the FDA's PAT (Process Analytical Technologies) initiative, has increased the use of particle shape analysis within the pharmaceutical industry. Particle shape, like particle size which is routinely measured and controlled, can directly influence product performance and its measurement can lead to improved process and product understanding. Here we consider the importance of particle shape measurement for the pharmaceutical industry, with reference to the aims of the PAT initiative, and highlight the modern image analysis techniques available for sensitive size and shape characterization. more

  • Efficient Transfection of Primary Human Skeletal Myoblasts Using FuGENE® HD Transfection Reagent

    Transfection of cells is one of the main techniques used to influence gene expression. Most primary cells and human skeletal myoblasts (SkMC) in particular are very difficult to transfect, whereas for cell lines such as C2C12, many suitable transfection reagents and protocols are available. Few publications report successful transfection of human primary myoblasts using non-viral systems [1,2,3]. These methods include cationic lipids such as phosphono­lipids, electroporation, and a combination of liposome and adenoviral associated proteins. But transfection efficiency is low and often is a compromise between toxicity of the reagents and transfection efficiency. more
