A unique platform for the quick quantitative measurement of nanoparticles in solution has been offered by Spectradyne's nCS1 instrument. The technique used for measuring nanoparticles is electrical in nature, and hence does not rely on an optical index contrast in order to differentiate particles from their suspending medium.
The instrument is capable of measuring separate nanoparticles and quickly gathers statistically-reliable distributions of particle sizes along with quantitative concentration information. This unique ability sets apart the nCS1 from any other instrument present in the nanoparticle analysis marketplace.
