Attend a Webinar on the Nicomp DLS System: Technology and Applications


The Nicomp dynamic light scattering (DLS) system can measure both particle size and zeta potential across a broad range of sample types. What makes the Nicomp unique is a combination of algorithms and accessories that make it easy for users to generate outstanding data. This webinar will discuss, in detail, the technical advantages of the Nicomp DLS system and show application results that highlight the kind of data generated over a range of samples.

Liposomes Application Note


Liposomes are spherical engineered particles made of phospholipids used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. The size and surface charge of liposomes are important characteristics that require measurement and monitoring. This application note describes how the Particle Sizing Systems Nicomp DLS system and AccuSizer SPOS system are used in laboratories around the world for the accurate measurement of the size and charge (zeta potential) of liposomes.
