Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC/SEC)

Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) is an analytical method for determining the molecular weight of polymers, proteins and small molecules. It is a versatile technique for determining molecular weight, molecular size, conformation, branching and structure.

Molecular weight measurements are important as they affect the characteristic physical properties of a polymer. Even subtle batch-to-batch molecular weight differences can cause significant differences in their end-use properties.

Our GPC instruments include the OMNISEC Gel Permeation/Size Exclusion Chromatography system, which is designed for the characterisation of natural and synthetic polymers, copolymers, proteins, nanoparticles and other macromolecules. It combines a pump, degasser, autosampler and column oven with four integrated detectors. These include a refractive index (RI) detector, a UV/Vis absorbance detector, a low angle light scattering (LALS) detector and a four-capillary differential intrinsic  viscosity detector.

At ATA Scientific we sell innovative instruments from leading manufacturers in the particle, surface, life and material sciences. Our suppliers include some of the world’s most well-regarded companies such as Malvern Panalytical, Phenom World, Biolin Scientific, Avestin, Precision Nanosystems, Phasefocus and Logos Biosystems.

Our scientific instruments are used by Universities, the CSIRO and by companies in a range of different industries including the pharmaceutical, polymer, chemical and mining sectors. We also provide our clients with long term support to ensure they get the best out of our products and services. Over the past 27 years, ATA Scientific has provided a range of technical services including operator training, preventative maintenance and instrument breakdown repair.
