Using columns calibrated with [Beta]-glucan standards whose MW were established using RALLS and viscometry, Beer et al [9] reported somewhat lower MWs of [Beta]-glucan in extracts from various oat and barley cultivars than Wood et al [8], but confirmed a significant difference between oats and barley.
Features include creep, viscometry, and oscillatory testing software; controlled-shear and shear-rate modes; wide torque range; high angular-positional resolution for low-strain nondestructive measurements; and high-speed capability for high-shear measurements.
