Implementing OMNISEC Technology in Multi-Detector GPC / SEC Polysaccharide Studies

Polysaccharides are a versatile, naturally-occurring class of materials, and are increasingly used in an array of industrial applications ranging from bio-printing, bioengineering and pharmaceuticals to paper and cotton manufacturing.

In order to produce these items, manufacturers and researchers have to be able to isolate and identify polysaccharides with particular molecular properties; as such, the adoption of an accurate system of analysis is of paramount importance.

Gel permeation chromatography (GPC) or, equivalently, size-exclusion chromatography (SEC), is a widely used technique to characterize a range of macromolecules, from bulk manufactured materials to natural polymers and proteins.
