We offer tested and practical scientific instrumentation for quality control,
characterization and/or exploiting magnetic properties of nanomaterials.
Inductive magnetometry: AC Hyster Series
The AC Hyster Series are automate inductive Magnetometers that allows to select single or several (up to 40) field conditions for individual or multiple AC magnetization measurements in short times (< 5 minutes).The equipments are bench top and can be plugged to the mains to operate. No specific installation, no maintenance consumables nor expert technical staff are required.
The AC Hyster equipment is run by Manyetic™, an user-friendly interface adapted to GMP regulation, providing distinct measurement modes suitable for different user needings. Manyetic™ determines the average and standard deviation values of few magnetic parameters (coercivity, remanence, magnetization at maximum field intensity, area, and SAR) out of three repetitions per measurement. Manyetic™ also performs a magnetization harmonic analysis to determine the module and phase values of the odd harmonics (average and standard deviation). Raw and analysed magnetic data are recorded into a txt file.
AC Hyster Series offer the possibility to customise some configuration options like field conditions (field frequency or intensity values), sample volume (up to 1 mL), signal sensitivity, or interface tools.
The AC Hyster Series are automate inductive Magnetometers that perform calibrated magnetization and magnetic heat losses measurements of magnetic nanoparticles dispersed in liquid media (aqueos or organic), or inside biological matrices (cells or tissues) under alternating magnetic fields. The AC Hyster Series determines the value of specific absorption rate (SAR) with an outstanding accuracy and reliability (>95%). The latest is essential for quality control of the industrial or academic production of magnetic nanoparticles. Also for understanding magnetic phenomena or quantifying the heat released by magnetic nanoparticles inside cells or tissues. The latest is key issue to correlate biological effects with thermal stress mediated by magnetic nanoparticles under AC magnetic fields.
AC Hyster Series are initially offered in three distinct configurations:
The Advance AC Hyster Series allows to perform AC magnetization and magnetic loss measurements under alternating magnetic fields into a frequency range from 25 up to 350 kHz and field intensities up to 32 kA/m. Click here to get the flyer.
The SENS AC Hyster Series allows to perform AC magnetization and magnetic loss measurements for magnetization signals down to 300 n Am2. Measurements can be done into the frequency range from 10 to 100 kHz and field intensities up to 32 kA/m. Click to get the flyer.
The LF Hyster Series is performs AC magnetization cycles of magnetic nanoparticles dispersed in any liquid media, inside biological matrices under quasi-static magnetic fields at single frequency (<1kHz) but variable field intensities up to 150 kA/m. Click to get the flyer.
AC magnetic field generation: AC Gen Series
The AC GEN Series is an alternating magnetic field generator adapted for in vivo magnetic and optical hyperthermia studies. The coil has a cylindrical shape with diameters up to 35 mm and optical access (lateral part of cylinder) for optical experiments or irradiation. The coil cooling allows to set the inner surface part of the coil at 35ºC. In addition, the coil is external to the power supply allowing is location to be four meters far from electronics and in different configurations in synchrotron or neutron beam facilities. No specific installation, no maintenance consumables nor expert technical staff are required.
The AC GEN Series generates alternating magnetic fields in a frequency range between 300 mHz and 500 kHz (up to 8 different frequencies) with field intensities up to 56 kA/m. Click here to get the flyer.
Calorimetry under alternating magnetic fields: AC qSAR Series
The AC qSAR Series enables to probe under non-adiabatic conditions the dynamics of magnetic colloid temperature under alternating magnetic fields. No specific installation, no maintenance consumables nor expert technical staff are required. AC qSAR Series is bench top and can be plugged into the mains to operate.
The AC qSAR Series is an automate calorimeter that integrates an alternating magnetic field generator allowing to monitor the magnetic colloid temperature while applying alternating magnetic fields. The AC qSAR Series can select single or several (up to 40) different field conditions for programming individual or multiple measurements. The AC qSAR Series supplies 8 different frequencies ranging from 10 to 450 KHz and field intensities up to 56 kA/m. Click here to get the flyer.
The AC qSAR Series is run by an user-friendly interface including two measurement modes suitable for different user needings: 1) SAR mode based on applying three times the same field condition for short times (< 40 seconds) once the sample temperature is in thermal equilibrium with surroundings; 2) TvsTime allows to freely record the sample temperature while applying alternating magnetic field or other external stimulus such as laser irradiation.
