    Description

    The Malvern instrument (equipped with a 632.8 nm laser) you can measure:
         ⇒ Particle size (0.3 nm – 10 μm)
              → Back scatter
              → Forward scatter
              → Side scatter
              → Multi Angle DLS (MADLS) – Max 500 nm
              → Particle concentration
              → Molecular weight
         ⇒ Zeta potential – measured by electrophoretic light scattering (ELS) which measures the speed of particles in presence of electric field and calculates particle charge.

    All these measurements can also be done in conjunction with the auto titrator unit, measuring effects of changing pH on particle size or zeta potential.

    Instrument can achieve temperature ranges between 0-120 °C

    Low volume measurement cells for size and zeta measurement are available.
