(PRWEB) November 30, 2012 -- Dalton Pharma Services a leading provider of drug discovery, development and manufacturing services to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, today announced that the Company has added SEC-MALS large molecule testing services. The new service addition will allow Dalton to more effectively develop and manufacture large molecules, such as proteins and polymers, for its customers.
Having a new Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) - Multi Angle (Laser) Light Scattering (MALS) instrument now allows Dalton to accurately measure size and composition of large molecules. This advanced technology can replace a number of more manual testing methods including viscosity, electrophoresis and chromatography retention times. It provides an absolute measure of molecular weight for molecules 10 to 1,000 nm in size.
Dalton’s scientific team is able to develop and validate new analytical methods using the technology as well as reliably testing and releasing large molecule products by this method.
“Having SEC-MALS provides Dalton with a specialized capability that supports large molecule products which are a growing part of our business”, said Peter Pekos, CEO of Dalton. “We are constantly expanding our service offering to better meet the evolving needs of our customers. This is an example of how Dalton keeps up with the latest technologies in order to deliver the most efficient services.”
