Microtrac NANO-flex



Equipped with unique probe technology, the NANO-flex particle size analyzer from Microtrac is able to quickly measure the particle size distribution of aqueous macromolecular solutions.    
The core methodology of the NANO-flex is Dynamic Light Scattering, however unlike mainstream Photon Correlation Spectroscopy [PCS], Microtrac utilizes a propietary Controlled Reference Method.
Additional Specifications Method 1: Dynamic Light Scattering CRM Controlled Reference Method, Hetero - dyne 180°   
Analysis 1: Fast Fourier-Transformation of the frequency power spectrum for size calculation   
Method 2: Static Light Scattering with integrated dn/dc determination   
Analysis 2: Molecular weight determination according to Debye: 1000 Da – 20 Mio Da   
Laser: 780 nm, 5mW Particle Size   
Range: 0.8 nm to 6500 nm   
Probe: Single mode fiber with sapphire window as sample interface, probe diameter 8 mm. 1 m flexible tube with sensor dip. Built-in height adjustment of sample container   
Samples: Aqueous and organic macromolecular solutions and dispersions    
Temperature Range: 0° C to 90° C, within temperature range from 10° C to 50° C with +/- 0.1° C accuracy    
Temperature Sensor: Thermistor inside the sensor    
PC: Requires Laptop or Desktop    
Dimensions: 180 x 300 x 260 mm (without mounted tubes and cables)   
Accessories: Cleaning kit, 1 set of 10 ml pipettes   
Weight: 6kg Electrical    
Supply: 24 Volt power adapter, 100 to 240 Volt, 50/60 Hz, 90 VA, 1 kg


  • NANO-flex Particle Size Analyzer   
  • Unique probe technology – simply dip and measure    
  • Measures particles ranging in size from 0.8 to 6500 nanometers   
  • Dynamic Light Scattering incorporating the patented Controlled Reference Method for advanced power spectrum analysis of Doppler shifts under Brownian Motion   
  • No “A Priori” or advance knowledge of the particle size distribution is required    
  • Pairs with the Stabino for Zeta Potential Analysis   
  • Users who manufacturer “high-end” materials can simply dip the probe into a larger container of material, which conserves valuable lab resources and eliminates costly sample prep errors   
  • While other DLS instruments utilize PCS to measure particle size, Microtrac’s Controlled Reference Method incorporates heterodyne detection by calculating signals of various scattered light frequencies combined with the reflected signal of the un-shifted frequency of the original laser, to generate a wide spectrum of frequencies. The power spectrum is then deconvolved which provides higher accuracy for multi modal and broad distribution measurements   
  • Short optical path allows users to measure higher concentrations of a substance   
    NANO-flex and Stabino combo can be used as stand alone instruments, which allows multiple groups to work with the instruments
