BI-200SM Goniometer System

research grade, highest flexibility,

Light Scattering occurs when polarizable particles in a sample are bathed in the oscillating electric field of a beam of light. The varying field induces oscillating dipoles in the particles and these radiate light in all directions. This important and universal phenomena is the basis for explaining why the sky is blue, why fog and emulsions are opaque and other observations. It has been utilized in many areas of science to determine particle size, molecular weight, shape, diffusion coefficients etc. Brookhaven Instruments' scientists have extensive experience in the development of instruments and methods for light scattering and this experience has been incorporated into the BI-200SM to make it the finest instrument available for research applications of light scattering.

With a Brookhaven Instruments BI-200SM system this rich field of exploration is open to you for studies of both Static Light Scattering (SLS) and Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS).

The Bl-200SM Research Goniometer System provides access to all of these studies with an automatic, modular and versatile system. It is a precision instrument designed for exacting scattering measurements. Based on a special turntable with precision ball bearings and stepping motor, the Bl-200SM's modern design and quality construction guarantee precise measurements due to the wobble-free movement of the detector. It is field proven in hundreds of laboratories. It is ideal for macro-molecular studies and submicron particle sizing.

Brookhaven Goniometer BI-200SM

NEW! By taking advantage of the multiple inputs available on the TurboCorr correlator a new capability of the 200SM system is created. By adding an optical signal splitter to the beam of scattered light and a second detector it is possible to eliminate the effects of very high speed interference from the detector(s). This Cross Correlation System provides remarkably clean information as seen in the article we have presented.

The BI-200SM's modularity simplifies system expansion. Featuring a standard optical rail, the BI-200SM can be used with neutral density filters, a polarizer, an analyzer, and a reference detector. Special sample requirements can often be met by changing the cell holder design or size.

BI-MwA MALS Detector

7-angles MALS, high sensitivity,

Quickly, easily, and accurately determine absolute molecular weights of proteins and polymers. Eliminate GPC/SEC column calibration and improve data quality. Rapidly reduce uncertainty with no assumptions required and true extrapolation to zero angle. Best of all, the BI-MwA has the highest performance/price ratio of any light scattering detector used for molecular weight determination.

Brookhaven Static Light Scattering

The BI-MwA is simple to use, but incorporates sophisticated features. Inject your sample into the low-volume, 7-angle flow cell. The sample is illuminated by a temperature stabilized, precision power-controlled diode laser. The ultra-stable, high-sensitivity, low-noise CCD detector automatically collects the scattered light. Then, the software extrapolates the data to zero angle for the absolute molecular weight determination.
