Nanoparticle Metrology System – Malvern Instruments Archimedes

Nanoparticle Metrology System – Malvern Instruments Archimedes

Malvern Instruments offers a high-performance nanoparticle metrology system called Archimedes. The system uses the technique of resonant mass measurement to identify and count particles in the size range of 50 nm to 5 µm.

Archimedes is useful for measuring protein aggregates in buffer or formulation. Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology sensor, the core of the system, enables ultra-sensitive, reproducible and reliable measurement of individual aggregates.

The system also provides information on sample volume, viscosity, concentration, density and polydispersity, and can easily differentiate between contaminating silicone oil droplets and proteinaceous particles.

Key Features

The main features of the Archimedes are:

  • Highly accurate particle size measurement from 50 nm to 5 µm
  • High sensitivity: measurement of particle mass to 350 ag.
  • Exceptional size resolution, <20 nm at 1 µm diameter
  • Can measure high concentration and high viscosity samples
  • Low sample consumption
  • Reliable and reproducible results
  • Differentiation between positively buoyant and negatively buoyant particles
  • Quick, NIST-traceable calibration
  • Intuitive ParticleLab software
  • Suitable for biopharmaceutical manufacturers and developers
