Particle Size Analysis of Coffee

06/08/2018

Particle size analysis in the food and beverage sector is concerned with numerous physical phenomena observed in granulated solids, emulsions, liquids, and more. The particulate properties of consumable products determine many of the properties we naturally associate with food and drink, from taste and smell to cosmetic appearance. Particle geometries and distribution are also critical […]

Particle Analysis of Dispersed Carbon Nanotubes

18/07/2018

Chemical vapor growth of cylindrical structures comprising monomolecular graphitic sheets was first observed decades ago, but the fabrication of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) remains a relatively emergent technology. These quasi-one-dimensional structures are increasingly used as a material reinforcement, with great potential for use in nanotechnology engineering, electronics, and pharmaceuticals. Particle […]

Outlining the Importance of Surface Area Analysis

06/07/2018

Surface area analysis refers to the measurement of a particle’s available surface. It is important because it is the means by which a solid interacts with its surroundings, whether they are gases, liquid, or other solids. Generally as particle size decreases, surface area increases, however if porosity is generated the increase in surface area can […]

Spectradyne Nanoparticle Analysis Webinar – Where’s my Peak?

02/07/2018

Does your current particle analysis technique show you a “peak” in your exosome distribution or protein aggregate data? Have you ever suspected that this “peak” might not be real? Join our 30-minute webinar on 11 July 2018 to learn how microfluidic resistive pulse sensing (MRPS) can give you the most accurate picture. We will demonstrate […]

Particle Size Analysis in the Pharmaceutical Sector

21/06/2018

Pharmaceutical products are comprised of tightly-controlled ratios of biologically active ingredients and excipient materials, the latter of which are designed to act as a drug carrying vehicle. The relationship between these compounded chemicals is critical in understanding drug dosage and efficacy, with multiple parameters affecting the ideal composition values of bulk medicinal products. Particle size, […]

Outlining Powder Flow Analysis

06/06/2018

Powder flow analysis is a method for determining the material properties and characteristics of powdered solids in bulk. Bulk powders exhibit vastly different mechanical attributes in dynamic or static states, behaving with mutable characteristics under varying conditions. Compressed, static powders often display similar properties to consolidated materials – yet when that same substance is subject […]

The Applications of Dynamic Light Scattering

23/05/2018

Light can typically travel uninterrupted through a homogenous liquid sample, even if it is refracted or if the color of the liquid absorbs some of its wavelengths. This is because transparent liquid particles will transmit light rather than reflecting it. If a liquid sample contains nanoparticles or particulates however, these microscopic solids will block and […]
