Particle Size Analyzer Suited to Nanoparticles, Colloids, Proteins and Emulsions

Published on August 29, 2011 at 6:57 PM

The new SZ-100 series from Horiba analyzes key particle physical properties including size and zeta potential. Particle size analysis is performed by dynamic light scattering (DLS). Zeta potential is measured by electrophoretic light scattering. Typical applications include nanoparticles, colloids, proteins, biomolecules, and emulsions.

The Nano Partica SZ-1-- particle size analyzer.

The SZ-100 is the only instrument available capable of performing size measurements at both right angle (90°) and backscatter (173°). This unique feature provides maximum sensitivity and allows the user to optimize measurement conditions for all possible sample types. Particle size measurements can be performed with a variety of cells and sample volumes down to 10 µL. The unique semi-disposable zeta potential cells use carbon electrodes and can typically measure hundreds of samples before requiring replacement. As little as 100 µL of sample is required for zeta potential determination.

The SZ-100 is a perfect complement to HORIBA's existing particle characterization line of laser diffraction, particle imaging, and surface area analyzers.
