By Diameter

What are Nanospheres?

Definition for nanosphere varies based on the source and the application, the most common definition being of a spherical particle of nanometer dimensions. At Cospheric, we define Nanospheres as spherical particles with diameter less than 1micron. These nanoparticles are characterized using a scanning electron microscope (SEM).

What are Microspheres?

There is no standard definition of Microspheres universally accepted in the industry. At Cospheric, we define microspheres as spherical particles greater than 1micron and smaller than 1000micron (or 1mm) in diameter. Synonymous product names are microbeads, microballs, microbubbles, and even microballoons. Microspheres particle size measurements are performed by analyzing a statistically significant sample of microspheres under NIST-traceable optical microscope.

Fine microspheres with diameters between 1micron and 10micron are larger than nanospheres, but on the bottom edge of microsphere particle sizes, and, therefore, in their own category.

What are Precision Spheres?

Spheres have diameters over 1000micron (or 1millimeter). These spherical particles are visible to the naked eye and sometimes also referred to as beads or balls. Large spheres are measured using NIST-traceable calipers to ensure the best consistency of these products, which are often used as size standards and reference particles.

Large variety of precise and highly-characterized spherical powders are offered in many grades and NIST-traceable particle size (diameter) distributions.

CATEGORIES
Ultra-fine spherical particles of nano scale, typically in diameters less than 1um. Nanospheres are often used in medical technology and biotechnology applications as well as in composites as a filler or an anti-wetting agent.
Spherical particles in diameters less than 10 micron are supplied in dry powder form and are color-stable in solution. Small fluorescent microspheres have numerous applications in biotechnology, medical research, medical devices, diagnostics, process troubleshooting and other fields of study.
The tighter the particle size requirements, the more monodisperse the distribution, the smaller the tolerances, the more precise the microspheres, which also typically makes them more expensive. If the particle size distribution is wider, and the tolerances are larger, the diameter of each microsphere might fall into a larger range, which makes the product more economical.
Highly spherical particles in sizes between 1mm and 13mm. Custom colors and sizes are available by request. Large, highly-spherical and colorful particles are a useful tool as reference particles in simulation experiments and are successfully used in vision systems and fluidized bed applications.
