Particle and Surface Sciences Australia has reported on how nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA), from Nanosight UK, is being implemented for the further characterisation of natural colloids (inorganic and organic) at the Institute of Water Resources and Water Supply at the Technical University Hamburg-Harburg in Germany.
Particle and Surface Sciences Australia has reported on how nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA), from NanoSight UK, is being used in the research project ‘Engineering of Biomolecules’ at the Lorraine University, based in Nancy.
The Viscotek system is a research-grade, temperature-controlled, multidetector SEC system combining light scattering, RI and intrinsic viscosity detectors. The DLS system Malvern Zetasizer nano ZSP adds protein measurement and microrheology capabilities to the Zetasizer family.
Particle & Surface Sciences has announced that the EyeTech combines two single particle sizing methodologies - a dynamic laser technology and a dynamic video/camera technology - both on the same sample.
The Möbiuζ (Mobius) is said to be the first and only light-scattering instrument that makes reliable, reproducible and non-destructive electrophoretic mobility measurements of macromolecules as small as 1 nm under dilute solution conditions.
The Occhio 500nanoXY is an automatic imaging particle analyser dedicated to powder quality characterisation. It can analyse powders, suspensions and emulsions in a particle size range 0.4 to 3000 µm.
The Zetasizer Nano ZSP is a high-performance system suitable for the measurement of size and mobility of proteins, zeta potential of nanoparticles and surfaces and microrheology of protein or polymer solutions.
The IKA LR-2.ST Package 2 modular-design laboratory reactor is suitable for optimisation and simulation of various chemical reactions as well as for mixing and homogenising processes in a laboratory scale.
The IKA MF 10.2 Impact grinding head, for impact and cutting grinding, provides grinding results of 5 mm particle size or 0.25 mm defined ultimate fineness. The mills can attain speeds of up to 20,000 rpm.
The IKA Ultra-Turrax dispersing device can be used for homogenising, emulsifying or suspending. The digital display allows users to keep track of the speed range up to 24,000 rpm.
The Spectrex PC-2200 in-situ laser particle counter and PC-2300 portable laser particle counter are both designed to permit thorough inspection of bottled and flowing liquids without consuming the sample. The sample is placed in a specialised glass bottle or beaker and inserted into either of the instruments for counting - eliminating sample flushing and making handling clean and simple.
The NanoPlus uses photon correlation spectroscopy and electrophoretic light-scattering techniques to determine particle size and zeta potential. The instrument can measure the particle size of samples suspended in liquids in the range of 0.6 nm to 10 µm with sample suspension concentrations from 0.00001 to 40%.
Analytical instruments capable of measuring chemical and physical adsorption and desorption isotherms and those capable of analysing temperature-programmed reactions can be powerful tools in the study of catalysis.
At Duke University, Professor Tuan Vo-Dinh and his research group have been characterising metal nanoparticle construct materials for use in biosensing, imaging and cancer therapy. This has been made possible through particle charcterisation technology manufacturer NanoSight and the company’s Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA).
The LasPaC II from STAUFF is an eight-channel, double laser particle counter that records the dirt content in mineral oil-based hydraulic fluids in the pressure range of between 2 and 420 bar. With the aid of an additional ‘bottle sampler’, it is also possible to analyse previously taken samples with this equipment.
