With more than ten years of experience building sophisticated spectrometric systems for carbon nanotube characterization, Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC is releasing its latest product, the NS MiniTracer.
The compact, affordable, and user-friendly fluorometer is optimized for sensitive quantitation of single-walled carbon nanotubes through their short-wave infrared emission. The NS MiniTracer is ideal for environmental and biomedical researchers needing rapid trace detection.
The NS-MiniTracer is also an ideal tool for any laboratory that needs to routinely characterize their SWCNT dispersions. It quickly captures emission spectra that reflect the composition, concentration, and individualization of a sample’s SWCNTs. And it gives even more spectral information with the affordable near-IR absorption option.
“There is currently no other commercial instrument that can detect nanotubes as easily and at such low concentrations for this price,” said Tonya Cherukuri, Director of Operations at Applied NanoFluorescence. “We’re able to provide this value by leveraging our design expertise to make a streamlined, dedicated system for detecting nanoparticles that emit in the near-infrared.”
Apart from its unsurpassed capability for single-walled carbon nanotube detection and quantification, the NS MiniTracer is also ideal for studying quantum dots that emit at short-wave infrared wavelengths, a rapidly developing area of research.
