Zeta Potential Analyzers

The zeta potential is a measurement used to describe the magnitude of the charge repulsion and/or attraction between particles within a sample. By providing details regarding the formulation of dispersions, emulsions, and aggregations of the samples, zeta potential measurements can be used to evaluate the stability of suspensions. Following the application of an electric field, particles within a sample will move according to the charge and the electrical potential of the particle at the shear plane, which is where the zeta potential is located. Zeta potential analyzers function by measuring the movement of particles under this applied electric field.
