Outlining Dynamic Light Scattering

18/04/2018

Particle analysers rely on a range of analytical techniques to determine the dimensions and the mechanical or biochemical characteristics of various samples. Emulsions and particles in suspension are commonly measured using dynamic light scattering (DLS), a method capable of defining the size and shape of particles, as well as their concentration and/or vector when dispersed […]

How Do Particle Size Analysers Determine Material Characterisation?

11/04/2018

There are copious methods of particle assessment for material characterisation, with different samples requiring varying techniques and methodologies to ascertain its viability for use in a consumer or industrial product, or for research purposes. Particle size analysers are subsequently varied, relying on different instrumentation to perform accurate analyses of particle morphology to further determine the […]

Performing Zeta Potential Measurement

04/04/2018

The electro-kinetic potential of colloids is known as its zeta potential. This is the difference in charge repulsion/attraction between mobile particles in a dispersion fluid, and the stationary layers of ions which have attached to the surfaces of insoluble nanoparticles dispersed throughout the medium. Zeta potential measurement is performed by dispersing nanoparticles in a liquid […]

Why Do We Need to Measure Particle Concentration?

28/03/2018

Determining the particle characteristics of various products and biological materials is increasingly reliant on the measurement of particle concentration, alongside particle size. It is a crucial metric in a range of industries and academic studies, where products are manufactured to microscopic parameters or where quality assurance – or research – must be maintained and carried […]

Outlining Resistive Pulse Sensing

22/03/2018

An important particle characterisation technique, resistive pulse sensing is a high-throughput method used to measure the size and quantity of particles in an electrolyte solution. The Coulter Principle Resistive pulse sensing is based upon the Coulter Principle, which states that the particles pulled through a hole with an electric current produce a change in impedance […]
