Malvern NanoSight LM10 with Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) Software Suite

Malvern NanoSight LM10 with Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) Software Suite

Based on traditional optical microscopes, the NanoSight LM10 employs a laser light source to light up nanoscale particles in a 0.3ml sample introduced to the viewing unit through a disposable syringe. In the presence of a perfect black background, particles appear as point-scatterers moving under Brownian motion.

The NanoSight LM10 is perfect for use in research laboratories. Agglomerates, contaminants, and polydisperse and multimodal systems can be quickly identified and quantified. The instrument has a high-specification sCMOS camera, which enhances the sensitivity of the LM10 by a factor of x100. This means the detection limit for a certain particle type has been enhanced by a factor of 2 when compared to the traditional instrument.

Users can automatically track and size nanoparticles using the image analysis Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) software suite. Additionally, video clips of images can be obtained and archived for future reference.
