D2.1 - Macroscopic module, protocols and separated ENPs for 4 model systems
We describe the development of an innovative AF4 macroscopic separation module. In the first section we show the merge of the standard AF4 separation module with the so called SPLITT separation module. This first prototype was designed on a macroscale and tested in a standard environment with standardized samples. Additionally we will show results from different TiO2 particle containing samples and the corresponding results. Based on the samples a validation of the AF4 system and the macroscopic ENP separation channel was done. A key result is the successful measurement of TiO2 particles smaller as 100nm in diameter from sunscreen.
