Nanosight NS200 Nanoparticle Characterization System

Thursday, 07 April, 2011 | Supplied by: Particle & Surface Sciences Pty Ltd

The Nanosight NS200 Nanoparticle Characterization System has been based on the well-adopted LM20 model. It applies a particle-by-particle visualisation and counting method and nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA). The system has taken advantage of developments in hardware to produce an easier-to-use instrument with a high-sensitivity camera built into the housing of the system.

It features optimised locators, that make it very easy to position the measurement cell, and an electronic readout of the cell test temperature.

The system has an optional blue laser to improve imaging capability, and fluorescence filters can be added when working with suitably labelled particles. The electron multiplying CCD (EMCCD) camera is designed with maximal speed and sensitivity in mind. With 37 full frames/s collected directly through a universal USB2.0 interface, the EMCCD has enhanced performance over the standard CCD previously supplied. Furthermore, the laser in the NS200 is triggered to reduce thermal issues with respect to the sample, restricting photo bleaching during fluorescence imaging. The end result is a ruggedly constructed instrument that requires minimal operator skills. Training is very rapid and operators can produce consistent results within a very short time from introduction.

Applications range from the life sciences through to the materials sciences.
