Size analysis of nanoparticles in the laboratory

Your needs: analyze the size of your nanoparticles

What is a nanoparticle?

Nanoparticles are materials at the nanometric scale that bring new physicochemical properties to the materials in which they are used. These properties can be physical, chemical, etc…

Why analyze your nanoparticles?

Unlike dusts with a larger diameter, fine particles (smaller than 1 micron) are more easily infiltrated and can be toxic to the user.

In addition, nanoparticles are also the raw material for powders and other products. The identification of their size is therefore a key characteristic in the manufacturing process, as well as their shape or surface potential.

Finally, the analysis of the size of nanoparticles contributes to the efficiency and conformity of your products in the context of quality control.

FILAB supports you in the analysis of the size of your nanoparticles

With an analytical park of 2,100m² and a section dedicated to nanomaterials analysis, the laboratory offers support services for the classification of nanomaterials and the development of your products based on nanomaterials or nanoparticles.

FILAB has, among others, the following analytical techniques related to nanomaterials:

  • SEM-FEG-EDX: determination of the size and shape of nanoparticles

  • Helium pycnometry: density measurement

  • XRD: structural analysis

  • DLS: measurement of nano-emulsion and study of the stability of a suspension by titration of the Zeta Potential.

  • SP-ICP-MS: detection of nanoparticles

  • BET : measurement of the specific surface

  • Laser granulometry: counting and particle size distribution

  • ICP-AES and ICP-MS: trace analysis and chemical composition of a nanomaterial-based product

The positive aspects of FILAB

  • A highly qualified team

  • Responsiveness in responding to and processing requests

  • A complete analytical park of 2100m²

  • Tailor-made support
