Bright Yellow Polyethylene Microspheres 1.00g/cc - Various Sizes 500um to 850um
Product ID: UVPMS-BY-1.00
Fluorescent yellow spheres. Neutrally-buoyant microspheres for flow visualization.
Data Sheet - Polyethylene Spheres, Beads, Microspheres, and Nanospheres
Bright fluorescent yellow microspheres are supplied in dry powder form and specifically designed with density ~1g/cc for suspension in fresh water, enabling flow visualization and analysis of fluid flow in a device. Controlled particle size ranges enable investigation of maximum particle size passing through the openings, filters and membranes. 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.
Density: 0.99g/cc-1.01g/cc (perfect for suspension in water)
Daylight Color: Fluorescent Yellow
Illumination Color: Fluorescent Yellow under Blue Illumination (470nm)
Particles in Size Range: > 90%
Spherical Particles: >90%
