The Malvern NanoSight NS300 Instrument provides an easy-to-use, reproducible platform for nanoparticle characterization.
The NS300 allows rapid, automated analysis of the size distribution and concentration of all types of nanoparticles from 10nm to 2000nm in diameter, depending on the instrument configuration and sample type.
With the ability to be supplied with interchangeable laser modules and theintroduction of a motorized 6 place filter wheel means different fluorescent labels can be analyzed.. Sample temperature is fully programmable through the Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) software.
This versatile instrument offers the major benefit of a new enhanced fluorescence detection capability, providing truly holistic analysis. The 6 place fully software-controlled filter wheel means automated analysis of multiple fluorescent markers can be performed without the operator being present, freeing up valuable researcher time.
- Simultaneous measurement of multiple characteristics, saving time and sample volume.
- Visual validation of results gives extra confidence.
- User friendly software with easy set up of SOPs for routine use.
- Minimal sample preparation.
- On board temperature control.
- Choice of laser wavelengths.
- Choice of up to 6 different filters in a motorized wheel provides flexible fluorescence detection capability.
How it works
The Malvern NanoSight NS300 uses the technology of Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA). This unique technology utilizes the properties of both light scattering and Brownian motion in order to obtain the size distribution and concentration measurement of particles in liquid suspension. A laser beam is passed through the sample chamber, and the particles in suspension in the path of this beam scatter light in such a manner that they can easily be visualized via 20x magnification microscope onto which is mounted a camera. The camera operates at 30 frames per second (fps), capturing a video file of the particles moving under Brownian motion. The software tracks many particles individually and using the Stokes-Einstein equation calculates their hydrodynamic diameters.
