It is also worth recalling that the increase of the dependent light scattering phenomenon as a function of the PVC is a continuous process.
The well-established technique of dynamic light scattering (DLS) is widely used in the characterization of liposomes and, since zeta potential is also such a vitally important parameter, analytical systems, such as the Zetasizer Nano from Malvern Instruments, that offer the measurement of both, are finding widespread application.
