Tosoh Bioscience LLC and The University of Akron Debut The Tosoh Polymer Chromatography Laboratory at the Goodyear Polymer Center, Akron, OH

Laboratory provides access to cutting-edge polymer analysis tools to accelerate research discoveries towards commercialization and characterization of polymers

King of Prussia, PA - Tosoh Bioscience and the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering at The University of Akron, one of the world’s top-ranked polymer sciences programs, will celebrate the opening of a new laboratory for the analysis of polymers and composite materials this Wednesday, May 11. The Tosoh Polymer Chromatography Laboratory located at the Goodyear Polymer Center offers start-of-the-art Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) Systems from Tosoh Bioscience for polymer scientists working in academia and industry.

Dr. Eric Amis, Dean of the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering and Vice Provost for Research, explains that the mission of this newly created laboratory is, “to educate the next generation of polymer scientists with the best tools for their cutting edge research to create, understand and use new polymers, nanomaterials, and biomaterials.”

“Scientists within the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering and surrounding industry now have access to technology that provides superior performance with increased throughput capabilities,” said David Olenski, GPC Product Manager, Tosoh Bioscience LLC. “The University of Akron and local companies are engaged in breakthrough research and development. Tosoh is excited about meeting the needs and challenges of these polymer scientists.”

The laboratory will also be resourced with external detection instrumentation provided by Wyatt Technology. Dr. Matt Becker, Associate Dean for Research and Professor in the Department of Polymer Science, says, “This is a unique partnership that represents the largest and most diverse academic GPC facility in North America. It will be an invaluable resource for the industry members locally and regionally looking for advanced chromatography.”
