Orthogonal and complementary nanoparticle characterization techniques
White Paper Feb 26, 2016
How can I trust my data? This is a common concern for many researchers using particle measurement instrumentation. Is the data affected in any way by the measurement technology, or alternatively by the user during sample preparation or by the analysis parameters employed? To answer this question we need to consider the use of independent and orthogonal measurement techniques in order to provide confidence and measurement validation.
Two such complementary technologies are Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis and Dynamic Light Scattering. This technical note will describe both technologies and the complementary data they produce as well as explore how their unique capabilities, when used in conjunction, provide the most comprehensive suite of measurement parameters available to those interested in the characterization of nanoscale materials.
