High-Performance Automation and Centrifugation Preparation of Carbon Nanotubes for Analytical Ultracentrifugation
30 August 2016

Single walled carbon nanotubes experienced increasing interest in the past 15 years for semiconductors, fuel cells and biomedical applications. This application note focuses on two challenging areas for nanoparticles: reliable, rapid scale-up of nanoparticle purification; and quantitative analysis of the concentration of species present. The Biomek 4000 Laboratory Automation Workstation helps overcome the human variable and gives a consistent, reproducible, high-throughput method for gradient setup, which provides a breakthrough for scale-up problems.
