The Malvern Zetasizer Nano system is a light scattering machine capable of measuring size, zeta potetial and molecular weight.
Uses a He-Ne, 4 mW, 633 nm red laser
Universal dip-cell kit
Low-volume quartz batch cuvette (ZEN 2112)
The Autotitrator allows complete automation of pH, conductivity and additive titrations. Size and zeta potential measurement can be conducted at each point. Min. sample vol = 3.5 ml.
The dip cell is used for the measurement of zeta potential of samples in aqueous and non-aqueous dispersants, and is designed to be cleaned and reused. It is for batch measurements using standard polystyrene or glass cuvette.
Trained users will have keycard access to the lab and will be able to book and use the analytical instruments. For ease of management, molecular biology instruments located in the BNL are also part of the Analytical core. Researchers can also engage BNL staff to perform basic molecular biological experiments such as recombinant protein expression. Cost will be on a project-by-project basis and will include staff man-hours, materials used and instrument recharges.
