Tosoh Bioscience
Tosoh Bioscience is a leading manufacturer in the field of liquid chromatography. The portfolio of over 500 specialty products encompasses instruments for size exclusion/gel permeation chromatography (SEC/GPC) and a comprehensive line of media and pre-packed (U)HPLC columns for all common modes of liquid chromatography. TSKgel® columns are renowned for their quality and reliability. The EcoSEC GPC instrument was developed for fast polymer analysis. Time and solvent can be saved when the system is coupled with our extensive line of highly efficient, semi-micro TSKgel columns. The new EcoSEC HT instrument was developed for high temperature GPC analysis. This all-in-one GPC/SEC system, provides stable thermostatization up to 220° C. Autoinjector, pumps, and a dual-flow RI detector are integrated in a compact design.
Agilent Technologies
Agilent manufactures and distributes a complete line of instrumentation serving the clinical, analytical, biotech, environmental, pharmaceutical, forensic science, food and flavor, academia, and all other laboratory markets that have needs for the best in quality, performance, and serviceability in the instruments they purchase.
Malvern Instruments
Malvern Instruments is a global company that develops, manufactures and markets advanced analytical systems used in characterizing a wide variety of materials, from bulk powders to the latest nanomaterials and organic or synthetic polymers. Innovative technologies and powerful software produce systems that deliver industrially relevant data enabling customers to make the connection between micro (eg particle size and molecular weight) and macro (bulk ), material properties (rotational and capillary rheology) and chemical composition (chemical imaging and DLS combined with Raman spectroscopy). Malvern laboratories have developed relationships and partnerships with academic laboratories specialised in polyolefins where we can subcontract measurement of polymers at high temperature.   Headquartered in Malvern, UK, the company has subsidiary organizations in North America, China, Korea and Japan, and all major European markets, as IESMAT in Spain equipped with most of Malvern equipment like chromatography systems (GPC/SEC, LALS, and SEC MALS detectors) in their applications laboratory. 
Research Partner
DPI, Dutch Polymer Institute
The Dutch Polymer Institute (DPI) was established in 1997 as a public-private partnership to perform pre-competitive research into polymers and their application, linking scientific knowledge to the industrial need for innovation. This results in added value for universities in scientific publications and for companies in intellectual property rights and the possibilities to execute new activities.
