Malvern Instruments Zetasizer NanoZS with MPT 2 Titrator

Model: 
Zetasizer NanoZS with MPT 2 Titrator

The Zetasizer Nano ZS is a desktop particle characterization instrument necessary for measuring the zeta potential, size and molecular weight of nanoparticles. It combines the practicality of a maintenance-free system with the versatility to offer precision measurement for our laboratory's particle characterization needs. It posseses Non-Invasive Back Scatter (NIBS) technology that is able to measure particles in the range of 0.6nm to 6 microns. Furthermore, samples can be analysed with little or no dilution making analysis extremely simple. The instrument provides accurate, reliable and repeatable size analysis including protein melting point determinations. this is crucial when developing new and innovative drug delivery systems at a nno-level where accuracy is of almost importance. In a discipline where accuracy, reproducibility and reliability of results are paramount, any equipment purchased by our team must be capable of maintaining specifieds standards of performance. It also offers the highest sensitivity, accuracy and resolution of zeta potential which is especially important when elucidating micelle structures, polymer-ligand binding and polymer chacteristics when crosslinking technology is employed in fabricating novel drug delivery systems. In general the Zetasizer NanoZS is simple to operate, uses low volume sample measurements that is especially valuable for biopolymers that are either expensive or in short supply. The Zetasizer NanoZS is able to measure: 1. The zeta potential of particles 2. Particle size analysis 3. Molecular weight analysis 4. Protein melting point daterminations These measurements are crucial when developing drug delivery systems at a nano-level where accuracy is of utmost importance.
