Nano Water-Based Condensation Particle Counter (CPC) 3788

SKU: 3788

The Nano Water-Based Condensation Particle Counter (N-WCPC) Model 3788 is designed for investigators interested in detecting the smallest nanoparticles. This sophisticated particle counter uses state-of-the-art, water-based condensation technology and features the highest activation energy and lowest detectable particle size of the WCPC family.

*A newer model of this product is now available.

Product Details

The Model 3788 has been discontinued.

With less than 0.1 second rise time, the Model 3788 is the fastest CPC commercially available and its high sample flow rate provides low diffusion losses and low Poisson noise. Other important elements include a thermodynamically optimized growth region and enhanced optical and detection design for impressive signal-to-noise ratios. The Model 3788 can be used as a stand-alone counter measuring up to 400,000 particles/cm3(using single particle counting) or as a component of a TSI SMPS spectrometer.


TSI's N-WCPC is suitable for most particle counting applications, but its ability to detect down to 2.5 nanometers, make this WCPC ideally suited for:

  • Particle formation and growth studies
  • Nanotechnology research or process monitoring
  • Inhalation or exposure chamber studies
  • Combustion and engine exhaust studies
