nCS1™ - Nanoparticle Analyzer

Spectradyne's nCS1 instrument offers a unique platform for the quick quantitative measurement of nanoparticles in solution. The technique used to measure nanoparticles is electrical in nature, so does not depend on an optical index contrast to differentiate particles from their suspending medium. The instrument measures separate nanoparticles and quickly accumulates statistically-reliable distributions of particle sizes with quantitative concentration information. This unique capability sets apart the nCS1 from any other instrument currently found in the nanoparticle analysis marketplace.
