Using Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis to Research Nanobubble Application and Characterisation

Malvern Instruments

The generation, measurement, and applied technologies of so-called nanobubbles, or ultra-fine bubbles, has evolved dramatically in recent years, and their unique properties make them attractive for a number of applications, such as facility cleaning, food disinfection, and water treatment.

The Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) technique is particularly adept at the detection and analysis (size, size distribution, number concentration) of these relatively low concentration structures of extremely small size (compared to 'conventional' bubbles).

NTA offers a unique capability to characterize nanobubbles by directly visualizing nanoscale particles in suspension (10nm to 2000nm) with high-resolution, in real-time, and with minimal sample preparation.
