Zeta Potential Analyzer

Biosafety Level 1 - Surface Characterization


ZetaPALS determines zeta potential using Phase Analysis Light Scattering (PALS). PALS is used to determine the electrophoretic mobility of charged, colloidal suspensions. PALS is a technique that is 1,000 times more sensitive than traditional light scattering methods based on the shifted frequency spectrum.

Instrument Uses

  • Measure Electrokinetic Potential
  • Measure Isoelectric Point


  • Suspensions


  • Max concentration 10% v/v
  • Size range 1nm – 100 μm
