The Malvern Zetasizer Nano ZSP with microrheology feature analyzes particle size ranging from 0.3 nm-10µm, zeta potential, and molecular weight and electrophoretic mobility of proteins. The microrheology option measures viscosity and viscoelasticity of protein and polymer solutions. The chromatography detector can be used as a size detector with GPC/SEC or FFF.
Projects are initiated by a meeting of the user, principal investigator, Core Director and Core Manager. Contact Mr. Tej Shrestha.
The Core provides individual training.
Trained users coordinate instrument use via the Scheduler.
Nanotechnology core facility equipment use is currently free for properly trained persons, with approval of the lab manager. However, a fee structure will be implemented long-term. This fee structure is expected to be similar to that of the other core labs on campus.
