VASCO KIN™ - Time-Resolved Particle Size Analyzer

Cordouan Technologies has created the VASCO KIN™ Time-Resolved instrument in keeping with their development of cutting-edge nanomaterials characterization technologies. This next-generation instrument has been engineered to track agglomeration and synthesis of nanoparticles or the stability of suspensions in real time. Monitoring is performed using accurate kinetic analyses integrated within a contactless and in situ remote optical head.

The VASCO KIN™ captures one continuous measurement that allows access to all characterization data of a reaction (scattered intensity, size distribution, correlograms, etc.).

Key Features and Benefits of VASCO KIN™

  • Artefact-free Avalanche Photodiode (APD) detector and frequency-stabilized laser ensure:
