Particle size and surface charge
Malvern Zetasizer Nano ZS is a non-destructive, simple and powerful tool for measuring hydrodynamic diameter (particle size), zeta potential (surface charge), and size distribution (polydispersity) as well as stability of the particles over the time and temperature dependence. Self-service available.
Particle size and concentration
Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis System provides quantitative characterization data including particle size and sample concentration. The general size range varies from 40 nm – 1 µm. In addition to samples analyzed by conventional methods, NTA also possesses additional capabilities to analyze fluorescently labeled nanomaterials. Self-service available.
Single particles ICP-MS proves invaluable for detecting and sizing metallic nanoparticles at very low elemental concentrations. Its combination of elemental specificity, sizing resolution, and unmatched sensitivity makes it extremely applicable for the characterization of particles containing elements such as Ag, Au, Ti (TiO2), and others.
Composition of inorganic/organic components
Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer can be used to conduct elemental/isotope analysis of over 100 different elements present at concentrations as low as 1 ppt (depending on analyte nature).
Determine total organic material content and the composition of the organic coating based on signature decomposition patterns using our Thermal gravimetric analysis System. Self-service available.
Average molar mass, size and solubility
Static light scattering technique will help you to determine average molecular mass of your polymer/nanoparticles as well as radius of gyration (size) and solubility (second virial coefficient). Self-service available.
GPC (Gel Permeation Chromatography) is an analytical technique in which particles/polymers are separated based on their hydrodynamic volume. Our technical capabilities can provide a distribution of absolute molecular weight, intrinsic viscosity as well as information on macromolecular structure, conformation aggregation and branching. Self-service available.
