Dynamic light scattering is a method for measuring the size and polydispersity of a nanoparticle solution. The Malvern Nano ZS enables researchers to take particle size, particle zeta potential, surface zeta potential, and molecular weight measurements in solution.


Measurement options available:

  • Size analysis (0.6-6000nm)
  • Zeta potential analysis (-150-+150mV)
  • Surface Zeta Potential analysis
  • Kinetics and trend measurements
  • Temperature range 2-90C
  • Sample volume required: 12-500uL for size measurement, 1mL for zeta potential measurements
