Leading analytical instrumentation supplier, Malvern Panalytical, is set to launch the Zetasizer Sample Assistant, a new accessory for its Zetasizer Advance range of light scattering instruments, at an online event on April 16, 2024. This upgrade makes it possible for Zetasizer Advance users to generate more measurements of particle size, zeta potential, and particle concentration per day, while reducing the need for supervision. This increased automation will improve productivity and reliability in targeted drug delivery and viral vector research.

Zetasizer is the world’s most widely used system for nanoparticle, colloid, and biomolecular particle sizing and particle charge measurements. Zetasizer Advance provides three analysis techniques for nanoparticles in colloidal suspensions: dynamic light scattering (DLS), electrophoretic light scattering (ELS), and multi-angle dynamic light scattering (MADLS). These techniques enable the measurement of particle size, concentration, and zeta potential.

Zetasizer Sample Assistant addresses the growing need to scale up these analytical techniques to keep pace with the higher throughput requirements of increased nanomaterial research and production. Specifically, Sample Assistant will address market demand for higher throughput by enabling round-the-clock automated sample measurements, enabling researchers to continue obtaining the high-quality data needed for critical decisions, while eliminating the risk of cross-contamination. The accessory will also minimize the requirement for supervision, freeing scientists’ time for other tasks.

During the online launch event, Malvern Panalytical’s Pharmaceutical Sector Marketing Director, Hanna Jankevics Jones, and Senior Application Development, Scientist Michele Carboni, will demonstrate how the new accessory helps scale up throughput in colloids analysis, and how it assists with critical measurements for nanomedicine, cell and gene therapy, and vaccine development.

We’re looking forward to seeing the possibilities that this increased ease of use and reliability will open for biotherapeutics development.”
