ViewSizer 3000

ViewSizer® 3000

ViewSizer® 3000 performs individual particle

analysis simultaneously on particles ranging in size from 10 nm to 15 µm.

This unique capability provides various benefits

including accurate measurement of nanoparticle concentration, size distribution and kinetic processes all with one easy-to-perform test on particles in liquids. In addition, the ViewSizer® 3000 has novel fluorescence capabilities that enable enumeration of different colloid constituents in the same sample.

There Must be a Better Way

Have you ever wondered:

If the Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) system you are using is giving you truly representative particle size distributions?

How much your nanoparticles change in the sample preparation process for Transmission Electron Miscroscopy (TEM) measurements?

Why conventional Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) does not provide accurate and reproducible results?

Are you frustrated with:

The difficulties in sample preparation, inconvenience, and cost of using the electron microscopy techniques?

Uncertain results when measuring polydisperse samples with DLS or conventional NTA?

Curve fitting algorithms that add an element of unwanted mystery to particle measurements?

Uncertain results and a need for making critical a priori assumptions in methods based on static light scattering?

Tedious methodology of particle characterization techniques involving fractionation such as FFF?

The inability to measure particle number concentrations with DLS?

Have you ever said “there must be a better way”?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you should learn more about how MANTA’s Most Advanced Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis technology is the better way to visualize and measure nanoparticles in our whitepaper “There Must be a Better Way…” which provides a brief introduction to MANTA’s technology, comparisons with other commonly used methods for nanoparticle size characterization, and example results obtained with MANTA’s instrument ViewSizer® 3000.

There is a Better Way

If you are not able to accurately measure particle size distributions, processes cannot be managed to make more of the desired particles and less of the out of spec particles. Similarly, it’s hard to optimize process yields if particle concentrations cannot be measured. And if you want to know about particle kinetic processes you’ll need accurate PSD measurements and / or particle visualization over time. MANTA addresses all these needs with one, simple to use bench top instrument.
