Zetasizer Pro

The new Zetasizer Pro is your go-to instrument to measure a wide range of sample types and concentrations. It offers wide dynamic concentration capability and high sensitivity due to the Non-Invasive Back Scatter (NIBS) optical design. Measurement of particle size, molecular size, electrophoretic mobility, zeta potential and molecular weight can all be performed with ease. 

The Adaptive Correlation feature enhances sample throughput by reducing measurement duration and providing greater sample knowledge. The deep learning-based data quality system gives you the confidence to know your data is the best it can be.  

The optical filter wheel allows measurement of fluorescent samples without impacting overall instrument sensitivity.

Accessories

Accessories

SV-10 viscometer

Viscosity measurement with speed, simplicity and accuracy.

The SV-10 measures viscosity with the accuracy required for dynamic light scattering, for the conversion of diffusion speed to size, and electrophoretic mobility to zeta potential, in an extremely simple and rapid system.

MPT-3 Autotitrator

Automate your pH titrations

The MPT-3 is a cost-effective accessory for the Zetasizer Advance range, designed to automate your Zeta and/or Size vs. pH titrations, helping you understand how your materials behave as a function of pH.    

The zeta potential and/or size of your materials with pH changes can be critical in understanding: 

  • Material stability
  • Agglomeration
  • Flocculation 
  • Point of net-zero charge (isoelectric point)
  • Storage conditions

Cell & cuvette options

Disposable folded capillary cell (DTS1070)

Eliminate sample cross contamination between zeta potential measurements using a completely disposable cell.

The zeta potential of colloids and molecules is extremely sensitive to contamination from components of a previous sample used in a measurement cell. The use of a disposable cell completely eliminates this potential contamination issue.

The folded capillary cell provides the benefits of the accuracy of measurement of a capillary cell with the ease of use of a disposable cell.

Although, disposable, including the electrodes, for low conductivity samples each cell can be used for hundreds of measurements if required.

The cell can be used with the autotitrator, where multiple measurements are routinely done over a wide pH range.

Universal 'dip' cell kit

Reusable solvent resistant cell.

The dip cell is used for the measurement of zeta potential of samples in aqueous and non-aqueous dispersants, and is designed to be cleaned and reused. It is for batch measurements using standard polystyrene or glass cuvettes.

High concentration zeta potential cell kit

Save time and effort by measuring zeta potential with little or no dilution.

The high concentration cell enables the measurement of the zeta potential of samples with little or no dilution in any Zetasizer Advance system that measures zeta potential.

The cell has a flow configuration so can be used for stop-flow size and zeta potential measurements using an MPT-3 autotitrator as well as batch measurements.

12mm square glass cell (PCS8501)

Glass cuvette for batch measurements.

  • For size and molecular weight measurements
  • Compatible with aqueous and non-aqueous solvents and dispersants

12mm Glass cell (PCS1115)

Glass cuvette for use with the dip cell.

  • For size and zeta potential measurements using the ‘dip’ cell
  • Compatible with aqueous and non-aqueous solvents and dispersants

Low-volume quartz batch cuvette (ZEN2112)

Low-volume quartz batch cuvette for size and molecular weight measurements.

  • Compatible with size and molecular weight measurements with aqueous and non-aqueous solvents and dispersants
  • Minimum sample volume 12 microliters
  • Maximum volume 45 microliters

12mm Square Polystyrene Cuvettes (DTS0012)

Disposable polystyrene cuvettes.
