Nanosight LM10

Nanosight  Capabilities

  • a unique method of visualising and analysing particles in liquid that relates the rate of brownian motion to particle size.
  • simple and direct qualitative view.
  • quantitative estimation of particle size and size distribution.
  • Limitations: analysis of 10nm particles is only possible for particles with a high refractive index such as gold and silver; the upper size limit is restricted by the limited Brownian motion - at particle sizes ~1µ particles move very slowly, significantly reducing the accuracy of the technique.
