Archimedes

Archimedes uses the technique of resonant mass measurement to detect and accurately size and count particles in the size range 50nm to 5um*.

Accessories

A small range of accessories and spares are available for Archimedes, adding flexibility and ease-of-use to the system.

Calibration standards

NIST monodisperse calibration standards for Micro and Nano sensors

Two types of NIST standards, one each for Hi-Q Micro and Nano sensors used in Archimedes.

Sensors

The heart of Archimedes

MEMS (Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems) sensors provide the central functionality of Archimedes, enabling resonant mass measurement of particles.

Vials and seals

Two types of screw-top glass vial – 20mL and 40mL capacity - are available for use with Archimedes. By using the dedicated vial seals a snug fit to the instrument is created, enabling pressure to be maintained throughout Archimedes’ fluidics system.

  • 20mL screw-top glass vials.
  • Vial seals create a pressure-tight fitting.
  • Vials need only be finger-tight.
  • Additional seals available for snug fitting of fluidics lines into reference and waste bottles.
  • Inserts such as eppendorf tubes may be used for smaller sample volumes inside 20mL vial.

Reference fluid

Deuterated water is provided for use with Archimedes. Deuterated water provides a fluid density gradient inside Archimedes’ fluidics system, and should be pre-mixed with deionized water for optimal operation of the system measuring protein solutions

  • Deuterated water is used in small volumes to provide a density gradient in Archimedes and keep sample flow moving in the required direction.
  • Simple and intuitive use with Archimedes.
