Information the equipment can provide
Dynamic light scattering (DLS) is an instrument that was purchased from Malvern in 2010 and it determines the size distribution of particles in solution, emulsion, or suspension in a non-invasize or non-distructive method. In addition, DLS also determines surface zeta potential of materials and the molecular weight (when coupled with a SEC system)
- DLS detection: Colloid size and distribution measurements for particles from 0.3 nm to 9 microns in a minimum volume of 12 microliters.
- Zeta Potential: For zeta potential measurements, the particle size suitable for measurements is from 3.8 nm to ~10 microns in a minimum volume of 150 microliters.
- Accessories: include an MPT-2 autotitrator for measuring zeta potential as a function of pH, conductivity, or concentration of an additive.
