Chemical imaging pioneer reviews latest developments
12 October 2009: Malvern, UK: Experts from the Malvern Instruments team will review the maturation of chemical imaging at this year's Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies conference, FACSS 2009 (Louisville, KY, October 18 - 22). They will also contribute papers in sessions devoted to bacterial identification and biopharmaceutical development and production respectively.
On Tuesday October 20th Malvern's Technical Director Dr E Neil Lewis will give the ANACHEM award plenary lecture where he will reflect upon the developments, applications, perspectives and insights that describe both the technicalities and importance of chemical imaging. Dr Lewis was selected to receive this year's ANACHEM Award - which will be presented immediately after the plenary lecture - for his contribution to the field of chemical imaging.
Following the award presentation, Dr Linda Kidder from Malvern's Analytical Imaging team will give an overview of the evolution of laboratory-based chemical imaging and its application as a primary analytical technique for predicting product quality during manufacturing. Positioned to provide both simultaneous and physical characterization, near infrared (NIR) chemical imaging, as exemplified by the SyNIRgi system from Malvern Instruments, seems set to redefine the notion of detection limit.
In Monday's symposium 'Novel Instrumentation for and applications of Raman spectroscopy', Product Manager Dr Janie Dubois will talk about a targeted approach to bacterial identification, describing a combined measurement using Raman spectroscopy and cellular morphology. On the same day as part of a session that addresses 'The measurement gap in biopharmaceutical development and production - complex molecules/problems', life science specialist Dr Ulf Nobbmann will discuss the application of dynamic light scattering to the real-time measurement of biological molecules and biopharmaceuticals.

About Malvern Instruments
Malvern Instruments provides a range of complementary materials characterization tools that deliver inter-related measurements reflecting the complexities of particulates and disperse systems, nanomaterials and macromolecules. Analytical instruments from Malvern are used in the characterization of a wide variety of materials, from industrial bulk powders to nanomaterials and delicate macromolecules. A broad portfolio of innovative technologies is combined with intelligent, user-friendly software. These systems deliver industrially relevant data enabling our customers to make the connection between micro (such as particle size) and macro (bulk) material properties (rheology) and chemical composition (chemical imaging).
Particle size, particle shape, zeta potential, molecular weight, chemical composition and rheological properties measurements are now joined by advanced chromatography solutions (GPC/SEC), extending Malvern's technologies for protein molecular weight, size and aggregation measurements, and synthetic polymer molecular weight and distribution. The company's laboratory, at-line, on-line and in-line solutions are proven in sectors as diverse as cement production and pharmaceutical drug discovery.
Headquartered in Malvern, UK, Malvern Instruments has subsidiary organizations in all major European markets, North America, China, Korea and Japan, a joint venture in India, a global distributor network and applications laboratories around the world. www.malvern.com
