NanoSight NS500…with integrated fluidics.

The Malvern NanoSight NS500 instrument provides an easy-to-use, reproducible platform for nanoparticle characterization by NTA technology.

The NS500 provides similar facilities and performance to the NS300 but adds fluidics automation.

Samples are introduced into the viewing chamber using the integrated fluidics capability. On-screen pump control allows for automatic sample handling, including loading, washing and dilution. Software-controlled motorized optical stages enable rapid relocation and refocusing following cleaning, improving reproducibility. Sample temperature is fully programmable through the Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) software.

Optional accessories  include a fully controlled syringe pump and an Auto-sampler for analysis of multiple dilution runs.

  • Analysis of similar samples for comparison, or batch-to-batch variation measurements for QA.
  • Analysis of different sample types where a protocol for measurement has already been prepared.
  • Choice of 96-position 2mL deep well plate format or 1.5mL eppendorf tube racks (maximum 144 samples in 4 racks).
  • A high resolution Zeta Potential facility was an option for the NS500 system and can be fitted to existing NS500 installations. More information is still available on this on the direct NanoSight web site .  However the ease of use of the Malvern Zetasizer Nano Z90, Z, ZS and ZSP offer better performance, flexibility – so Malvern NanoSighthave decided that customers wishing to perform Zeta experiments alongside NTA experiments will be offered a 2 instrument package.
