In a continuation of their development of advanced nanomaterials characterization technologies, Cordouan has developed the VASCO KIN™ Time-Resolved instrument. This next-generation equipment is designed to monitor in Real Time nanoparticles synthesis, agglomeration or the stability of suspensions, using accurate kinetic analyses combined within an in situ and contactless remote optical head.

The VASCO KIN™ takes one continuous measurement, that enables access to all characterization data of a reaction (size distribution, scattered intensity, correlograms, etc.).
