Speaking about dynamic light scattering techniques
Malvern's Zetasizer Nano is widely used for the characterisation of nano-sized particles, providing particle size, zeta potential and molecular weight measurement in a single system
Malcolm Connah, product manager for nanometrics at Malvern Instruments, spoke about dynamic light scattering techniques at a workshop on 'Sampling, detection, monitoring and characterisation of nanoparticles' at Begbroke Science Park (Oxford, UK) on 22 May 2007.
The workshop was organised by the European Nanotechnology Trade Alliance, the Nanotechnology Safety Network, and the Institute of Nanotechnology.
It provided a forum for instrument manufacturers and users to discuss the parameters of most significance in the environmental and health and safety contexts, the capabilities of particular instrumental techniques, and any requirements in the nanotechnology community that cannot yet be addressed using available technology.
Malvern's Zetasizer Nano is the method of choice for nano-particle applications from routine colloid size measurements to the investigation of particulates at the leading edge of materials research.
Patented technologies ensure optimum performance for particle size measurement over the range 0.6 to 6000 nm, molecular weight measurement from 1x10^3 to 2x10^7 Daltons and the zeta potential of particles from 5nm to 10um.
Specialists in forensic science will explain how Morphologically Directed Raman Spectroscopy (MDRS) can be used to analyse hoax powders used in bioterrorism attacks, at the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) 2015 conference.
Analytical techniques and their application in Particle Charaterisation will be presented by one of Malvern Instruments’ product development managers at IFPAC later this month.
Malvern improves NanoSight software download
Malvern Instruments has launched NTA 3.0, a new version of the software that drives its NanoSight Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) systems.
Malvern Instruments is marking the second anniversary of the Mastersizer 3000 with software updates and the Mastersizer 3000E.
Experts from Malvern Instruments focused on the use of on-line zeta potential measurement in water purification for their presentation at the 2013 Colloid & Surface Science Symposium.
