Shed Light onto your Polymers - How a Refractometer Can Help Calibrating your GPC


Eliminate the human error to zero by utilizing the refractive index to check the concentration of your polymer calibration solution.
Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) plays an essential role in determination of dispersity and molecular weight of polymers and complex molecules.
Calibration is done using basic polymer solutions such as polystyrene in THF. Uncertainties in preparation of the standard can often carry over to uncertain measurement results.
This webinar will focus on how you can minimize uncertainty – and expensive errors – with a fast, highly-precise refractive index measurement.

Featured topics in this webinar will include:

  • Calibration process of GPC
  • How a refractometer can improve the GPC calibration
  • Requirements and the specifications your refractometer must meet
