Nicomp 380 ZLS
Available from Particle Sizing Systems
The Nicomp 380 ZLS combines the top-of-the line Dynamic Light Scattering or DLS sizing capability that the Nicomp product line has been known for since the 1970’s with an extensive zeta potential capability.This combination creates a multi-tool platform for the full characterization of nano-dispersion and colloidal systems. The 380 ZLS features both frequency and phase analysis modes for measuring zeta potential. Combined with an electric field that can be varied from 1 to 250 Volts/cm, proteins which require gentle conditions to metal-oxide particles in organic solvents can be analyzed with one instrument. Small volume cells are available.
The Nicomp 380 ZLS incorporates several ways to compensate for high ionic strengths. This makes the 380 ZLS the tool of choice for measuring zeta potential in biological systems.
The spread of features available for sizing (multi-angle, APD detector, high-powered lasers, backscattering) and zeta potential (frequency and phase, ionic strength corrections, small volume and flow through cells) makes the Nicomp 380 ZLS the most versatile instruments available for nano-particle analysis.
