Wyatt Technology ViscoStar™ II Viscometer for SEC-MALS Triple Detection

The ViscoStar™ II viscometer offered by Wyatt Technology has low baseline drift and noise. With unprecedented signal-to-noise ratio, the online differential viscometer accepts external signals for zero, purge, and recycle. It features Ethernet and USB communications and full color LCD display that transmits data at a glance. User-selectable delay volumes and Transducer Protection System (TPS) are the other features of the ViscoStar™ II viscometer.

Professor Skip Rochefort’s group at Oregon State University together with Wyatt Technology measured the intrinsic viscosity and Mark-Houwink-Sakurada (MHS) behavior of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) using instruments, including an Optilab rEX, a DAWN EOS, and a ViscoStar. Using the strange MHS behavior, the difference in HA MHS coefficients reported in the literature was explained.
