Jan. 22, 2007 — NanoAndMore USA, a Lady’s Island, SC distributor of nanotechnology products including atomic force microscope (AFM) probes, announced that it had been named as the exclusive distributor for the US by NanoSight, a British manufacturer of particle size analyzers, and by Lyncée tec, the Swiss manufacturer of Digital Holographic Microscopes.
The NanoSight nano-particle size analyzers are promoted as doing what PCS and other light scattering methods do, in addition to tracking every particle and reporting on the total distribution of particle sizes by count and percentage. “The NanoSight LM-10 and LM-20 not only report on the predominant particle size but also on any other particles present in the solution.” said George McMurtry, president and founder of NanoAndMore in a prepared statement. “The instruments use Brownian motion to track the speed and distance each particle moves during a fixed period of time and can then very accurately graph the total distribution of particles from around 15nm to nearly 1µm. This may not replace PCS but it will certainly sit beside it as a second method of analysis.”
“This is the second major scientific instrument added to our products which was always part of the master plan for our company”, said McMurtry. “It joins Lyncée tec’s Digital Holographic Microscope and will be sold by utilizing our network of well established independent sales agents who we have known for several decades and are already selling into the scientific instrument marketplace. We have full coverage across the US.”
