Nanoparticle characterization and analysis in a laboratory
Your needs: to analyze the properties and effects of nanoparticles used in your field
At the nanometric scale, new physicochemical properties can appear in certain materials. The analysis and the study of these phenomena are therefore essential to understand the effects of nanoparticles in the context in which they are used.
As major players in the cosmetics, medical devices, electronics, textile, aerospace, pharmaceutical, food or fine chemical industries, you are looking to improve your products or substitute them with nanomaterials (nanosensors, nanovectors, nanoparticles, nanocomposites, nanocatalysts…).
To achieve this, support from a laboratory specialized in nanoparticle analysis, with precise and metrologically monitored equipment, will allow you to evaluate performance of your substances, to optimize them and to better understand their effects on your operations, whether in your raw materials or in your finished products.
Our solution: to assist you as part of your manufacturing processes or R&D projects that involve nanoparticles
With an analytical fleet spread over 2100m² and a team dedicated to particle analysis, our laboratory provides you with support in studying and developing your nanoparticle-based products. FILAB is capable of using the following techniques:
FILAB intervient également sur des prestations plus larges liées aux nanoparticules :
ICP-AES and ICP-MS: trace element analysis and analysis of a nanomaterial-based product’s chemical composition.
XRD: structural analysis
BET specific surface measurements
SP-ICP-MS: nanoparticle detection
SEM-FEG-EDX: determination of the size and shape of the nanoparticles.
Laser granulometry: to measure the number of nanoparticles resent and their granulometric distribution
Helium pycnometry: density measurements
DLS: measurement of nano-emulsion and stability analysis of a suspension using Zeta Potential titration
FILAB also provides broader services related to nanoparticles:
Development and validation of analytical procedures specific to nanoparticles
Literature and regulatory reviews
Container/contents interaction testing
Assistance in understanding regulations surrounding nanoparticles (REACH, EC n°1223-2009, R-Nano…)
With three levels of services – analysis, expertise and R&D support – FILAB assists companies from all sectors and of all sizes in overcoming their industrial challenges by sharing its technical know-how and the wealth of experience of its team with its clients.
