Wyatt Technology

The µDAWN™ Multi-Angle static Light Scattering (MALS) detector performs absolute characterization of macromolecules eluting from UHPLC, determining molar mass and size independently of retention time and molecular reference standards.

Wyatt Technology Corporation

The µDAWN™  Multi-Angle static Light Scattering (MALS) detector performs absolute characterization of macromolecules eluting from UHPLC, determining molar mass and size independently of retention time and molecular reference standards. This instrument offers superb sensitivity over a wide range of molar mass, size and concentrations. In most respects the µDAWN is similar to the well-established miniDAWN™ TREOS™, a workhorse MALS instrument used in hundreds of labs around the world for characterizing proteins and other molecules smaller than 50 nm in radius.

Distinctly from the miniDAWN, the µDAWN is uniquely suitable for use in conjunction with UHPLC Size Exclusion Chromatography (µSEC-MALS) thanks to its small interdetector dispersion. In some cases it may be used with ion-exchange or other types of chromatography. Regardless of the specifics, the µDAWN produces minimal band broadening in order to maintain the narrow peaks typical of UHPLC.

The µDAWN and its companion Optilab® UT-rEX™ Refractive Index Detector interface to most standard UHPLC systems. As these instruments are based on the advanced technology of the miniDAWN TREOS and Optilab T-rEX, respectively, users may be confident in the underlying capabilities cited in thousands of peer-reviewed publications

The µDAWN may also be used in microbatch (off-line) mode or in conjunction with a Calypso II CG-MALS system for characterization of macromolecular interactions: affinity and absolute stoichiometry, label-free and immobilization-free, as well as second virial coefficients, cross virial coefficients, average molar masses and sizes.

Containing an innovative set of glass equipment, the Mini Lab „lab in a suitcase“ is now used in many schools in different countries. There is now a new manual available for Mini Lab which includes more than 40 experiments - from basic operations such as distillation, filtration etc to complex syntheses such as colorants as designed by Prof. Michael Schallies. The instructions for the equipment configuration are easy to understand and are explained by simple drawings. General tips for the implementation of single experiments, material notes as well as danger symbols for the reagents are also included in the test description. The expected experimental results are also described in detail and partly documented with pictures or graphics. In the appendix of the manual there are detailed explanations of the potential dangers and also safety tips.

Current Owners of the Mini Lab can have a new updated manual for a small nominal charge.

Zinsser Analytic GmbH develops and manufactures in Germany and supplies customized automation technology and laboratory accessories for the global market. The company has specialized in the supply of high end technological products and systems for automated analysis in the fine chemical industry and also biological research and development.
