The VSP-S1 Size Selector

Reproducible samples with size selected nanoparticles in <60 minutes

The VSP-S1 is a table-top, user-friendly nanoparticle size-selector that can be easily connected to the VSP-G1. Together, they enable the automated production of size-selected inorganic nanoparticle (1-10 nm) samples, with minimal effort. Compatible with any (semi-) conductive material (alloy or non-alloy), you simply select the size and wait for your sample to be ready. Typical sample preparation time is 30-60 minutes.

Make particles of several sizes in the range of 1-10 nanometer to determine the activity as a function of particle size. The automatic preparation of catalytic samples with a 0.1nm resolution enables sequenced sample production in less than a day.

Saying that a physicist can do it better”
