What does the Zetasizer Nano do?

The Zetasizer Nano range of instruments provides the ability to measure three characteristics of particles or molecules in a liquid medium. These three fundamental parameters are particle size, zeta potential and molecular weight. By using the unique technology within the Zetasizer system, these parameters can be measured over a wide range of concentrations.
