Affinity Biosensors' CEO Ken Babcock commented, "Archimedes has been adopted at many leading US biopharmaceutical companies. Our partnership with Malvern will extend Archimedes' reach worldwide, and we are glad to see it alongside Malvern's leading materials characterization technology. Archimedes users are sure to benefit from Malvern's world-class support and applications expertise."
Archimedes allows precise measurement of size and mass of particles with diameters down to 50nm. Measurements are unaffected by optical or shape variations, and gentle fluidics ensure that fragile aggregates are not disrupted. The instrument can measure high viscosity samples and consumes as little as 100µl of precious protein formulation. Archimedes can accept particle concentrations up to 1x109 per ml, allowing direct study of undiluted high concentration formulations.
Archimedes can also differentiate between protein aggregates and silicone oil droplets in an injectable biopharmaceutical using buoyant mass measurement, something that no other technology can do at the submicron size scale.
