Synergy of Complementary Nanomaterial Characterization Techniques: NTA+DLS
| By Malvern Instruments
Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) is a mature and proven technology for nanomaterial characterization. Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) is a more recent addition to the spectrum of particle characterization techniques and has many similarities to DLS, leading to some confusion as to their relative capabilities. The broad range of measurement capabilities for each technique is complementary in nature, providing a wealth of valuable information. The differences between the two techniques allow the data from one technology to validate and support the other.

Using the Zetasizer Nano to Optimize Formulation Stability
| By Malvern Instruments
Formulation development is a critical activity for many industries, from pharmaceuticals, to paints and coatings. Indeed, it is estimated that in the UK alone, sales of formulated products amount to some £180 billion per year1. This means that getting formulation ‘right’ is an important goal, with considerable value attached to it. Stability is a crucial attribute for many products with a direct impact on performance, shelf-life, kerb appeal and ultimately, worth. A systematic approach to understanding and developing stability can therefore be extremely helpful in improving the likelihood of success in long-term stability trials and accelerating formulation. The Zetasizer range from Malvern is the world’s most widely used system for nanoparticle, colloid and protein size and zeta potential measurements. In this whitepaper, we examine how these capabilities can be exploited to develop stable dispersions.

Using Squeeze Flow to Extend Rheological Measurements for Concentrated Suspensions
Making shear rheological measurements on samples with a high solids fraction can present difficulties on a rotational rheometer, since the sample can be prone to fracture even at low-medium shear rates.

Using Laser Diffraction to Characterize Casein Micelles and Fat Globules in Milk
To improve its shelf-life, milk undergoes a homogenization process. This process produces fat globules of a uniform, small size. During the homogenization process the size range of the fat globules is reduced from 0.1-15 μm in unprocessed milk to 1-2 μm in homogenized milk [1]. These smaller globules cannot form large enough clusters for creaming to occur, increasing the shelf-life of the milk.
