Performance, Simplicity, Versatility Why DLS is suitable for your application The technique is ideal for the measurement of the size of colloids, nanoparticles and molecules, without requiring agitation to make the sample suitable for analysis. From the size, an estimate of the molecular weight can be made, which has the benefit of being faster to confirm oligomeric state than size exclusion chromatography (SEC).

Benefits of using the Zetasizer Nano NIBS: The ultimate optics for series for DLS measurements    DLS measurement Measuring molecular size by DLS The principle of dynamic light scattering is that fine particles and molecules that are in constant random thermal motion, called Brownian motion, diffuse at a speed related to their size, smaller particles diffusing faster than larger particles. The speed of Brownian motion is also determined by the temperature, therefore precision temperature control is essential for accurate size measurement. To measure the diffusion speed, the speckle pattern...

Performance, Simplicity, Versatility The importance of zeta potential and protein charge How do you approach the development of a stable dispersion or assess product shelf life? Do you run time consuming shelf tests? If so, there may be a better way to optimize sample stability and shelf life. The charge acquired by a particle or molecule in a given medium is its zeta potential and arises from the surface charge and the concentration and types of ions in the solution. Since particles of similar charge will repel each other, those with high charges will resist flocculation and aggregation...

Why measure zeta potential? The choices of materials used in a formulation may be restricted by regulations and also have an impact on cost. Knowledge of the zeta potential of particles in a formulation can be used to make logical choices about the chemistry of a formulation in order to select the most appropriate materials to provide stability and improve shelf life. Zeta potential can also be used to study the effect of formulation components on other bulk properties such as viscosity, in order to achieve lower viscosity at higher concentrations for example. Why measurement of protein...

Performance, Simplicity, Versatility SURFACE ZETA POTENTIAL What is surface zeta potential? Surfaces in contact with a liquid containing ions can have a zeta potential in the same way as dispersed particles and molecules. This effective charge on the surface will attract or repel molecules or particles in the liquid, and knowledge of this can be used for a variety of applications, for example in the development of contact lenses. Measuring surface zeta potential An accessory cell for the Zetasizer enables a small piece of the flat sample to be mounted between two electrodes. The presence of...

INTRODUCTION TO MOLECULAR WEIGHT MEASUREMENT Measuring molecular weight The Zetasizer Nano series enables you to measure the molecular weight of macromolecules in solution using Static Light Scattering (SLS). The SLS technique requires the system to be sensitive and exceptionally stable, so the Zetasizer has been designed to meet these criteria. Molecular weight using the Zetasizer or Size Exclusion Chromatography? • The Zetasizer measures the average molecular weight of the sample In comparison, SEC separates the components of a sample before the calculation of an accurate molecular weight...

Performance, Simplicity, Versatility Microrheology Introducing DLS-based optical microrheology DLS-based optical microrheology uses tracer probe particles to measure the relationship between stress and deformation in materials. Analogous to mechanical rheometry, a stress is applied by Brownian motion of the tracer particle. Deformation or strain is then measured through changes in the tracer position. Thermally-driven motion of the tracer particle is intimately linked to the rheological properties of the suspending fluid. It is very different in a purely viscous medium (e.g. water) than it...
