Advanced research software features for the Zetasizer Nano

Light scattering with the Zetasizer owes part of its success to the ease of use integral in its default DTS software. The intuitive windows environment lets you setup a measurement (either in “manual” or in “standard operating procedure” mode) and all that’s…READ MORE >

PDI from an individual peak in DLS

Can one calculate a PDI value excluding a small aggregation peak? For example if the main particle species is ~100nm and there is a small contribution (2% by intensity) from a peak at 5 microns, is it possible to recalculate…READ MORE >

FAQ: Peak size or z-average size – which one to pick in DLS?

In dynamic light scattering (DLS) the intensity autocorrelation function of the scattered light is measured. This function is then fit to obtain a size. There are two main fitting algorithms which may confuse users: Cumulant (or z-average) size and polydispersity…READ MORE >
