Zeta potential analysis using Nanosight’s Z-NTA

April 29, 2011 5:18 am

In a new applications report, NanoSight technologists describe the operation and application of ZetaSight, a new module for their family of nanoparticle characterization systems. Zeta Potential Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (Z-NTA) adds measurements of electrostatic potential to simultaneous reporting of nanoparticle size, light scattering intensity, fluorescence and count, and does so particle-by-particle.
