Due to the growing interest in nanomaterials, measuring nano-sized species is becoming the parameter of great importance. To meet these expectations Malvern Instruments company offers Dynamic Light Scattering equipment - Zetasizer Nano ZS. It is high-performance system combining Dynamic Light Scattering for nano-particle sizing, Electroforetic Light Scattering for zeta potential, and Static Light Scattering for molecular weight measurements.

To overcome some DLS limitations Malvern offers also NanoSight family nanoparticle size analysers. These instruments utilize a technique called Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis - NTA, to measure particle size.

In the presentation the advantages of both techniques, and applications examples will be discussed.
