The Zetasizer Pro incorporates two technologies in a single compact unit, with a range of options and accessories to optimize and simplify the measurement of different sample types.
Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) is used to measure particle and molecule size. DLS measures the diffusion of particles moving under Brownian motion and converts this to particle size and particle size distribution using the Stokes-Einstein relationship. Non-Invasive Back-Scatter (NIBS) technology is incorporated to give the highest sensitivity within the broadest range of sizes and concentrations.
DLS is a highly flexible sizing method which is rapid, accurate and repeatable. It requires only small volumes of sample for analysis, and is non-destructive. This technique is material-independent and therefore extremely widely applicable.
ZS Xplorer Software Suite
The software is designed to be very easy to use, even whilst enabling the rapid construction of complex methods. Information on the sample, its conditions, and the variables to be tested are entered at the beginning of a run, and ZS Xplorer uses this information intelligently to optimize the method for that sample. A deep learning empowered data quality guidance system provides feedback on results and offers clear advice on how data may be improved if required.
