Cordouan Technologies

New Supplier Announcement


SRC is pleased to announce that we have concluded an agreement with Cordouan Technologies to be exclusive distributor in Canada of their VASCO KIN™ particle analyzer— a role we take on with great enthusiasm.


The VASCO KIN™ is a Nanoparticle Size Analyzer. A new generation of time-resolved instruments for accurate kinetic analyses combined with an in situ and contactless remote optical head. It allows for real-time monitoring of nanoparticle synthesis, agglomeration or the stability of suspensions using Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS). With a single and continuous measurement, VASCO KIN™ gives access to all characterization data of a reaction (size distribution, scattered intensity, correlogramms, etc.).



Key features and benefits

  • Frequency stabilized laser and artefact-free Avalanche Photodiode (APD) detector
    → High measurement accuracy
    → Very low sample scattering
  • Embedded dedicated PC, including software correlation and complete and dedicated software NanoKin®
    → User-friendly interface
    → Photon-counts storage for time-resolved analysis and post-analysis
    → Full reports, including kinetic analysis
  • Enhanced mathematical models
    → Better reliability of results
    → 2D colormap of size distribution over time

Main specifications

  • Measurement principle: Optical fiber Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS)
  •  Measurement configuration: in situ / contactless remote probe
  • Particle size range: 0.5 nm  to 10 µm*
  • Concentration range: up to 40% wt*
  • Measurement time: from 2s up to 12 hours
  • Time resolution: down to 200 ms
  • Small footprint, no moving parts, and easy-to-integrate in harsh environments
