The new Zetasizer NanoSampler from Malvern Instruments is a versatile, compact, fully automated sample delivery system for the Zetasizer Nano, the most widely used system for nanoparticle and colloid characterisation.
Delivering precise and reproducible automated sample loading, and accommodating up to 96 sample vials, the NanoSampler enables unattended operation of the Zetasizer Nano, to maximise analytical productivity. It is especially suitable for laboratories where reproducibility is critical and where multivariate studies are routine.
The new NanoSampler will work with all of the sizing systems in the Zetasizer Nano instrument range. This range includes both exceptionally high-performance and entry level systems that measure particle and molecular size using dynamic light scattering, covering a size range from less than one nanometre up to several microns. The simplicity and ease of use of Zetasizer Nano systems have made them the leading solutions in both industry and academia, and the new NanoSampler will enhance their capabilities.
Samples can be selected for analysis via the Zetasizer software through a simple-to-use standard operating procedure (SOP). Each sample is delivered through solvent-resistant tubing and into the quartz analysis cell within the Zetasizer Nano. Automatic size measurements are then made, without the need for user intervention. After analysis, the results from all selected samples are clearly displayed in the records view in the normal way.
Malvern Instruments will be holding a live webinar on 15 May 2014 to formally launch the product into the market.
