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.).
For monitoring of NPs synthesis, agglomeration or suspension stability study, Vasco Kin™ helps you analyzing your Kinetics in real time !
The unique “time slicing” function allows VASCO KIN™ users to choose measurement’s resolution, by selecting a posteriori the analysis’ time scale. Users then obtain corresponding correlogram & size distribution for the chosen time scale.
Example: Kinetics study of reaction and gel structure monitored by pH, salinity and particles concentration. Colormap of size distribution over time with a single and continuous measurement, VASCO KIN™ gives you access to all characterization data of your reaction (size distribution evolution over time).
Spectra Research Corporation (SRC) offers a range of innovative high-quality scientific products and laboratory services to industrial and scientific markets throughout Canada.
