Salisbury, UK, September 2008 – NanoSight Limited, the nanoparticle characterization company, have announced additional temperature control capability for their family of instrumentation.

As temperature directly affects diffusion speeds, the measurement of temperature has always been a key variable in NanoSight analysis. Temperature is routinely measured by NanoSight instruments and, when using aqueous systems, look-up tables embedded in the software will apply the appropriate viscosity. Users of other solvents may input the viscosity manually.

NanoSight has introduced a temperature-controlled stage, which operates from five degrees below ambient to 50˚C. This stage meets two immediate needs: for life-sciences users, it can operate at mammalian body temperatures. For users working in solvents, it can maintain 25˚C, the standard temperature for readily-available viscosity data. Accuracy is provided to a level of +/- 1˚C and is controlled from the system’s software.
