Malvern Instruments has announced that it has become the primary supplier of systems for nanoparticle characterization to a consortium of 13 commercial companies and 12 academic research groups in Israel - Nano Functional Materials NFM.

The NFM Consortium is supported by Israel’s MAGNET program (Office of the Chief Scientist in the Ministry of Trade and Employment, Israel) led by Mr Ilan Peled.  

Dr. Fernando de la Vega, the consortium chairman, said, “The consortium is successfully developing new ways to fabricate and use nanoparticles in industrial processes and products and is now completing its third year of activity.”

To date, twenty Malvern Zetasizer Nano systems have been purchased by members of the NFM Consortium for a variety of applications.

The Zetasizer Nano is the most widely used system for the measurement of particle size, stability characterization using zeta potential, and molecular weight, both for routine measurements and those at the leading edge of materials research.

These materials range from particle dispersions to emulsions and molecules in solution.

The technology in the Zetasizer Nano provides the sensitivity required for the measurement of highly dilute proteins and polymers, as well as the ability to measure inks, pigments and emulsions at high concentrations.

It enables particle size measurement over the range 0.6 to 6000 nm, molecular weight measurement from 1 x 103 to 2 x 107 Daltons and the zeta potential of particles from 5 nm to 10 µm.

Commenting on the use of the Zetasizer Nano systems, Dr Eynat Matzner, NFM Consortium manager said, "The NFM consortium is developing nano structured functional materials, where nano particles are dispersed in a solid or liquid media."

"Measuring not just the prime particle size, but also the dispersion and agglomeration of particles in the matrix, is crucial for development."

"When measuring in liquid media, the Zetasizer is a very valuable tool"
