High Sensitivity DLS System for Molecular Weight Determination of Proteins, Biomolecules and Nanoparticles

Published on May 25, 2011 at 1:30 AM

The W130i from Avid Nano is a breakthrough, high sensitivity dynamic light scattering system for size and molecular weight measurement of proteins, biomolecules and nanoparticles.

Engineered to meet the demands of today's research laboratories, the W130i dynamic light scattering system delivers outstanding performance from only 5µl of sample in seconds. The W130i combines ultimate measurement performance with an economical benchtop footprint, rugged durability and supreme user convenience.

Critical to the W130i's outstanding performance is the integration of Avid Nano's unique SABRe - Stabilized Anti-Back Reflection optical design. The result is an optimised measurement performance, immune to reflections and permanently mechanically stable. The patent-pending 5?l BladeCell cuvette combines the ultimate convenience of a disposable sample holder with the measurement quality of a quartz cuvette. Built-in compatibility with standard fluorescence cuvettes and flow cells make the W130i a uniquely versatile instrument. With decades of experience in DLS design and manufacture, Avid Nano has built unrivalled reliability into the W130i. Every component has been designed for superior performance, reliability and low maintenance operation. The W130i is also amazingly small, occupying the very minimum of valuable laboratory bench space.

Dynamic light scattering is a non-invasive technique that enables quick and accurate measurement of hydrodynamic radius, size distribution, estimated molecular weight and aggregate content of biomolecules and nanoparticles in solution or suspension. Avid Nano DLS systems find particular utility in applications including crystal screening, buffer optimisation, solubility screening, aggregate detection, micelle formation, engineered nanoparticles and formulation development.
