What to Bring for Your Analysis

ANTEC does not provide disposables or small equipment (pipettes) for your experimental needs. 


Equipment Specifications


The NanoSight300 from Malvern Instruments utilizes the properties of light scattering and Brownian motion to obtain the size distribution and concentration measurement of particles in liquid suspension. Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis technology combines laser light scattering microscopy with a CCD camera and enables  visualization and recording of nanoparticles in solution. The Nanosight is equipped with 488 nm and 642 nm interchangeable laser modules and allows for fluorescent particles analysis.

Applications and Detection Limits

The Nanosight allows for rapid (3-5 min per run) size distribution and concentration analysis of nanoparticles from 10 nm to 2,000 nm.
