How small is a nanometer?

At Ancon, a common phrase we use is “unprecedented sensitivity”, but have you ever wondered just how sensitive that is? This demo video zooms in on a blue morpho butterfly and a lotus leaf using an optical microscope and a scanning electron microscope, demonstrating particle sizes down to 200nanometers (0.0002milimeters).

Able to measure, calibrate and generate aerosol down to 1nm, that means that Ancon’s instruments are up to 200x more sensitive than this demo shows!

Aero Select – wide range sampler from 35µm down to 1nm

Aerosoliser – powder particle dispersal down to 1nm

NPS500 – nanoparticle spectrometer down to 5nm

NMT – detection of trace chemicals down to single molecules.
