An introduction to particle size characterisation by DCS
Differential centrifugal sedimentation (DCS) is a novel and innovative, yet simple technique, which has become ‘reborn’ in recent years. Previous limitations and difficulties with the technique of sedimentation have been overcome using recent advances in technology, and some smart thinking regards instrumentation and disc design. DCS is now a powerful tool in measuring nano particle size distributions down to around 2nm.
