Malvern NS300 NanoSight
Tool to measure particle size distribution and concentration
Manager: Beth RhoadesBackup: Xinwei Wu
The NanoSight (Malvern NS300) uses the technology of Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) to characterize nanoparticles from 30 to 800 nanometers in liquid. Each particle is individually and simultaneously analyzed by direct observation and measurement of diffusion events. A laser beam is passed through the sample chamber, and the particles in suspension scatter light so they can be easily visualized by the 20X magnification microscope and camera. The camera can take 30 frames per second and captures a video file of the particles. This particle-by-particle methodology produces high-resolution results for particle size distribution and concentration.
