The Malvern Zetasizer series measures particle and molecule size from below a nanometer to several microns using dynamic light scattering, zeta potential and electrophoretic mobility using electrophoretic light scattering, and molecular weight using static light scattering. In addition the system can be connected to a GPC / SEC system to use as a chromatography detector. The system is available in a range of variants that allows you to select the best system for your application and budget, and the philosophy of the design is to ensure exceptional ease of use and give confidence in the results without compromising performance.

Metal colloids represent a very interesting system known since
Roman times (the Lycurgus Cup). We'll look at the preparation of
these systems looking mainly at gold, silver, and the platinum
group metals. All these find extensive application in in...
The z-average diameter is the mean intensity diameter i.e. it is a diameter based upon the intensity of scattered light of a material in its native state (including electrical double layers and surface structure). The z-average is derived from a Cumulants analysis of the measured correlation curve, wherein a single particle size is assumed and a single exponential fit is applied to the autocorrelation function. It is unique to dynamic light scattering and it is sensitive to the presence of aggregates/dust due to the intensity of light scattered by any larger particles present.
The use of nanomaterials such as ultra-fine powders, additives or complex nanostructures in food and drink products has distinct advantages as well as potential risks. The advantages may be listed in great number from novel functionality, flavours an...
Suspensions or dispersions of particles or droplets in a liquid medium are encountered in a variety of industries and find use in a diverse range of applications. These include liquid abrasives, ceramics, medicines, foodstuffs and inks to name a few....
As the Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) technique has gained in popularity in recent years, comparison to Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) results has become more frequent. When comparing results, it is important to understand the differences betwe...
Suspension stability: Why particle size, zeta potential and rheology are important
(February 11 2016)
Nanoparticle size is an important criterion for our formulations and we routinely measure this with the Zetasizer Nano.
My students have always had great things to say about the Zetasizer Nano. They say it’s very easy to use. The software is very user-friendly and it can accommodate particles of various different sizes, so I have never had reason to evaluate another particle sizing instrument.

On-line zeta potential measurement is helping us to achieve a more cost-efficient water facility.
The Zetasizer Nano is so easy to use. All my students can familiarise themselves with it very quickly. As a result, we are purchasing a second instrument to ensure we have enough capacity for our expanding research programme in this area.

Here at IU’s Nanocharacterization facility, the Malvern Zetasizer Nano is the ‘go to’ instrument for characterization of assembled product.

We very much value the customer service and training opportunities from Malvern. In particular, the rapid diagnosis of any issues through direct internet connection with the Malvern customer service team has prevented us from suffering production downtime.

The big plus of an on-line instrument is real-time monitoring, the value of which was really brought home to us during a recent treatment event. The on-line data we collected during the event gave us new insight into a modified operating scheme that we’re now capitalizing on.
The Malvern systems have proved highly effective, allowing us to further demonstrate the stability and purity of our products and how this may be translated into improving liquid biopharmaceutical formulations.
We’ve always been really happy with Malvern and while we’ve tried other companies, the necessary expertise was not there.

We have had several researchers become new NRC users because they want to access our Malvern Zetasizer Nano

The [Zetasizer Nano] instrument is robust, easy to use and data acquisition is straightforward. It is as close to ‘student proof’ as it is possible to be!

The technical support that we’ve received has been a deciding factor in our decision to continue to work with Malvern. Malvern systems also provide the cutting-edge performance and reliability that we need.

The Zetasizer Nano has reliably delivered a substantial portion of data and continues to help drive our research.
As part of the multi-disciplinary lab at QMUL, materials and biomaterials research groups throughout the university, from engineers and chemists through to biologists and physicists, are benefiting from access to analysis using the Zetasizer Nano.
We’ve been running the Zetasizer APS continuously since 2012 and the real beauty is that we simply load the samples in multiwell plates, leave it to run, even overnight, and go back and pick up the results.
