Useful for routine before TEM.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area: Nanoparticles

"Is a piece of good equipment for comparing several stages of functionalization from the same sample but not for a single one. Factors such as hydrodynamic diameter, multiple dispersion, and mathematics assuming spheres... lead to that size in zetasizer is sometimes far away from the real size. Zeta potential measurements are more interesting than size. Is easy to use."

It produces a good quality result. Easy to operate.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:nanoengineering

"I began to use this instrument to measure nanoparticle size and zeta potential. It is easy for me to learn how to use it, and the data is reliable. We can quickly check whether data quality is good or not during the measurement. But it is hard for me to find how to download the software from the website, luckily I found it. This instrument is reliable and worth of money."

Top of the class!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Liposome size and zeta potential determination

"The Zetasizer Nano ZS has very intuitive software, samples are easy to manipulate with, and the results of measurements have high reproducibility. Compared to similar devices we have used in other laboratories of our partners, this one is truly the value for money and is much easier to use. Also, it is sample-friendly, due to its NIBS technology."

Great results, the instrument is absolutely useful.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Microencapsulation technology

"The instrument is being applied from 8 am until 8 pm, for students in research work, for PhD students and for technicians. It is very easy to explain to them how it works, and the effectiveness of measurements are of very high accuracy. We have been using this instrument for the last 5 years andvit shows robustness and precision on measuring. Either size diameter, or zeta potential are determined here. In both cases, the instrument works very well."

Great.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Size distribution and zeta potential of nanoparticles

"It is easy to use, but samples need dilution before tests, which makes the zeta potential less accurate. It depends on the sample preparation, so tests results can be quite different."

Review date: 06 Mar 2020 | Zetasizer Nano ZS

Manufacturer's Response

Thank you for the positive review. As for Zeta measurements, it’s better if you can dilute your samples in the continuous phase (if possible obtain a clean continuous phase by centrifugation and/or filtering). If that is not possible then use an analogue of the continuous phase and keep it consistent between samples of the same type. All the best – Malvern Panalytical.

  • Application Area:DLS and Zeta potential messurements

"Easy to handle instrument that provides a wide spectra of usage. As a newbie you will learn quickly how to take your measurements and after a few runs you will start to learn the mechanics and the possibilities of the machine. The sample preparation is really easy for the zeta sizer. It is highly tolerant to concentration issues and polydispersity. "

The instrument is consistent and results reproducible. Must have for protein work
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Aggregation and thermal stability of protein

"The instrument is easy to use and the support is great. I highly recommend users to attend the seminars that Malvern provides, although this is not necessary to start using the instrument. I would recommend they use a test protein first like BSA, for which lots of data is available from Malvern and others. The Application notes were also very helpful and technical experts were extremely helpful."

Super instrument for Nano Particle Analysis - Quick, Accurate and Dependable!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Polymers and Minerals

"Such an easy instrument to run nano particles in various dispersants with low volumes for size and zeta potential. Easy use of various cells to cover all categories. The auto titration unit is also very efficient in producing pH, Iso Electric and titration results. The Malvern customer service people are just an email away when help or service is needed. This is one our most used and valued particle analyzers in our lab!"

Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze the nanoparticle samples

"I've been using the Malvern nano ZS for almost over 4 years. It is very well known as DLS (dynamic light scattering). My research is biomolecular imaging with several types of nanoparticles. So, I really need the size and zeta-potential data for my research. As I know, most of the researchers are using Malvern DLS instrument. I've submitted several papers and been working on a patent with this instrument. For the science, the essential is the most important. This instrument is the essential of my research."

"The easiest most reliable instrument. Never breaks. Simple to use. Zeta potential does have a large error margin but for the ease of use and low cost to operate worth the 2 min to set up a run. Backscatter feature is nice for smaller particles that would otherwise not be seen."

Great Instrument
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Formulation development

"Easy to use, but could have more technical assistance with setting up parameters for SOPs such as when it might be better to use forward versus backscatter. More expansive refractive index/absorbance preloaded."

Very nice piece of equipment
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:particle suspensions

"The instrument produces very reliable data. Performing the measurements as well as the data manipulation is easy and convenient. It can go down to low sizes which was important for my research."

Worth every $
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze size and charge of nanoparticles

"For years been used in our lab to measure size and surface charge of different nanoparticles as: SLN, liposomes, niosomes, magnetic nanoparticles. Perfectly functioning still. "

The Zetasizer Nano ZS is used for the measurement of the size, electrophoretic mobility of proteins, zeta potential of colloids and nanoparticles, and optionally the measurement of protein mobility and microrheology of protein and polymer solutions.

The Zetasizer Nano ZS is a high-performance two-angle particle and molecular size analyzer for the enhanced detection of aggregates and measurement of small or dilute samples, and samples at very low or high concentration using dynamic light scattering with ‘NIBS’ optics. The ZSP also incorporates a zeta potential analyzer that uses electrophoretic light scattering for particles, molecules and surfaces, and a molecular weight analyzer using static light scattering.

In addition, a microrheology option is available for measuring sample viscosity and viscoelastic properties, as well as a Protein Measurement option for protein mobility measurements.


Zetasizer Nano ZS Features:

  • Size measurement from 0.3nm (diameter) to 10 microns using patented NIBS (Non-Invasive Back Scatter) technology.
  • Zeta potential using patented M3-PALS technology.
  • Molecular weight measurement down to 980Da.
  • Microrheology option to measure viscosity and viscoelasticity.
  • Protein size measurement as dilute as 0.1mg/mL (Lysozyme).
  • Sample concentrations from 0.1ppm to 40%w/v.
  • Optional protein calculators, including protein charge, A2, kD, and molecular shape.
  • A ‘Quality Factor’ and ‘Expert Advice System’ gives the confidence of having an expert at your shoulder.
  • 21CFR part 11 software option to enable compliance with ER/ES.
  • Research software option to give access to further features and analysis algorithms for the light scattering specialist.
  • Automation of measurements using an autotitrator option.
  • Optional flow mode capability to enable use as a GPC / SEC size detector.
  • Alternative laser, 50mW at 532nm for samples incompatible with the standard 633nm laser.
  • Optical filter option to improve measurements with fluorescent sample.
  • Temperature range extension option to 120ºC.
