AF2000 Series-Flow FFF is the advanced asymmetric flow FFF (field flow fractionation) platform system for separation, fractionation, and characterization of nanoparticles, proteins and macromolecules. It is based on the cross-flow field separation principle. The separation is based on the size or molecular weight, with separation range 103 -1012 Da or 1 nm - 10 µm.

A LABmaster Dp glovebox workstation which offers enhanced control over the research environment via continuous operation of two separate purifier columns. This MBraun glovebox version allows manipulation of substances that are air- and moisture- sensitive by attaining purity levels of less than one part per million oxygen and moisture.

L-B Troughs are used to create, modify and study Langmuir films. A Langmuir film can be defined as an insoluble monolayer of functional molecules, nanoparticles, nanowires or microparticles that reside at the gas-liquid or liquid-liquid interface. The fact that these molecules can move freely at the interface provide great flexibility for controlling the packing density and studying monolayer behavior.  The trough also enables Langmuir film fabrication. It is equipped with a dipping well and a dipping mechanism.
