Micro/Nano Particle Characterisation Facility

Our aim is to develop a characterisation pipeline that will enable users to fully characterise all physicochemical properties of their samples. By using a combination of the complementary particle characterisation techniques on offer, users can generate a representative, and reliable overview of their samples.

If you have any questions regarding the Micro/Nano Particle Characterisation Facility please contact Dr Alison White.
