Performing Zeta Potential Measurement


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?


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


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 […]

**New** Electrical Nanoparticle Sizing Technique


Meritics are pleased to announce that they have been chosen as the exclusive UK distributor for the Spectradyne High Resolution Nanoparticle analyser range. Spectrodyne’s nCS1 (TM) instrument provides a unique platform for the rapid quantitative measurement of nanoparticles in solution. The instrument measures individual nanoparticles to produce particle size distributions with quantitative concentration information for […]

Pore size distributions are now easier to obtain with the new Pascal Evo range of mercury porosimeters.


March 2017 sees the introduction of the new Pascal Evo range of mercury intrusion porosimeters. Developed from the very successful Pascal range, the new systems feature more resolution and computer control. With an increased number of data points possible, and a new computer controlled calibration routine, the Pascal Evo range will make pore size and […]

Latest Dynamic Imaging Particle Analyser from Fluid Imaging

Based on the proven FlowCAM DIPA technology, the new FlowCAM Macro provides rapid particle characterisation which goes beyond just particle size. Optimised for larger particles (250µm – 5000µm) the FlowCAM Macro provides image based measurements of particle size and up to 30 shape parameters which enables differentiation of particle types in a hetrogenous mixture. Applications […]
