Material Safety Data Sheet - Polyethylene Spheres, Beads, Microspheres, and Nanospheres
Bright fluorescent red microspheres are supplied in dry powder form.
Fluorescent particles of known density and particle diameter range are
often used in density-matching for flow visualization and analysis of
fluid flow in a device. Particles exhibit a strong fluorescent response and are color stable in solution.
Polyethylene microspheres are hydrophobic and need to be coated with a surfactant prior to suspending in water. We recommend Tween 80 Bio-compatible Surfactant
