Litesizer seminar and demonstrations

Event Date: 23/10/2019

Event Time: 12:00pm

ANFF-Q will be hosting a new Anton Paar Litesizer™ 500 from Wednesday 23 October until Friday 8 November. To help us make the most of this incredible instrument, we have invited Dr Neeraj Mishra from Anton Paar to present a seminar on Dynamic, Electrophoretic and Static Light Scattering (DLS, ELS, SLS) technologies and how they can be applied to different samples. The seminar will be followed by a Q&A afternoon tea.

Additionally, private demonstrations of the instrument will be available each day by appointment, and we invite you to bring your samples.

The Litesizer™ 500 is an instrument for characterizing nano- and microparticles in dispersions and solutions.

It determines particle size, zeta potential, and molecular mass by measuring dynamic light scattering (DLS), electrophoretic light scattering (ELS), and static light scattering (SLS).

A highlight of the Litesizer™ 500 is its ingeniously simple software. We have created a one-page workflow, where input parameters, results and analysis are all on a single page. You can set up your experiments in a few seconds, and produce the analyses and reports you need at the touch of a button.

With the Litesizer™, you will benefit from the following:

  • Three detection angles with automatic angle selection through transmittance.
  • Perform zeta potential measurements on sample concentrations up to 70% (m/V), and on samples as dilute as 0.1 mg/ml.
  • Long-life laser diode with extremely short warm-up times.
  • Compact design with easy-to-use control software.

Places are limited so make sure you register:
