Particles Plus 5310 and 5510 Remote Airborne Particle Counters

03 June, 2014

The Particles Plus 5310 and 5510 Remote Particle Counters display and report six user-selectable particle size channels, as well as temperature and relative humidity, flow and sensor status, date of last calibration, serial number, laser on-time and date of manufacture.

Particles Plus 8206 Handheld Airborne Particle Counter

02 June, 2014

The Particles Plus 8206 Handheld Particle Counter measures 0.2 to 10.0 μm with a flow rate of 2.83 L/min. Easy to configure, the instrument displays up to six user-selectable size channels as well as temperature and relative humidity.

Malvern NanoSight and Zetasizer for particle characterisation

29 April, 2014

Exosome research can be constrained by a lack of suitable methods for characterisation as they fall below the detection range of many currently used techniques. Nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA) coupled with dynamic light scattering (DLS) offers an approach that is fast, easy to use and accurate.

Exotic particle confirmed by CERN

11 April, 2014

Scientists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have confirmed the existence of a new class of subatomic particles called exotic hadrons. The LHCb collaboration, one of the four large experiments at the LHC, found that the exotic object does not fit into the pattern of particles observed up until now.

Malvern Instruments Morphologi G3-ID image analyser for particle size and shape

31 March, 2014

The Morphologi G3-ID from Malvern Instruments combines automated static imaging with chemical identification of individual particles using Raman spectroscopy in one platform. Integrated dry powder dispersion automates sample preparation for repeatable and reproducible measurements of both fragile and robust materials.

Horiba Partica LA-960960 laser diffraction particle-sizing instrument

05 March, 2014

Horiba has released the LA-960 laser diffraction particle-sizing instrument. The product has a wide measurement range of 0.01-5000 µ (up to 3000 µ for wet method). 3D data simulation, which generates scattered light patterns for Horiba's original optical layout, is used for calculation.

Malvern Mastersizer particle size analyser

27 February, 2014

The Mastersizer, from Malvern Instruments, is claimed to be the world's most widespread particle sizing instrument. The product utilises laser diffraction, which offers non-destructive automated measurement, sample flexibility, broad measurement range and fast data acquisition.

Physicists measure quantum particles with unprecedented accuracy

18 February, 2014

The Heisenberg principle states that it is impossible to jointly measure two incompatible quantities, eg, speed and location, of a quantum particle with perfect accuracy. Yet physicists at The University of Queensland (UQ) have come very close to doing just that.

Particle & Surface Sciences POLA 2000 liquid particle size analyser and counter

05 February, 2014

Particle & Surface Sciences has launched the POLA 2000, a particle size analyser and counter for liquids. The product is a robust, high-resolution particle counter designed for counting particles in liquids.

Malvern Zetasizer Nano system for nanoparticle and molecular characterisation

01 February, 2014

The Malvern Zetasizer Nano is a widely used system for nanoparticle and molecular characterisation. Proteins, polymers and colloids can quickly and accurately be measured for size, zeta potential, electrophoretic mobility and microrheology without consuming the sample.

Application note shows CG-MALS can quantify complex proteins

10 December, 2013

Wyatt Technology has published an application note highlighting a study on the complex interactions between proteins and how they modulate the rotational direction of bacteria flagella. The application note highlights the benefit of using composition-gradient multi-angle static light scattering (CG-MALS) to confirm the specific binding sites of the protein.

Ancient Roman glass inspires nanoparticle research

25 November, 2013

Scientists at the University of Adelaide's Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS) have been inspired in their research by a 1700-year-old Roman glass cup.

Malvern Instruments Mastersizer 3000E particle sizer

24 October, 2013

Malvern has extended the Mastersizer family with the addition of the Mastersizer 3000E for particle sizing. The product is an entry-level addition to the range, based on the design of the Mastersizer 3000 but with more basic performance and software functionality.

Optical fibres enable a bright future for nanocrystal measurement

03 September, 2013

A team of researchers from Macquarie University, the University of Adelaide and Peking University has discovered a way to measure the world's most sensitive nanoparticle from a distance using light. The research has been published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.
