US scientists have used nanoparticles to confer a real superpower on ordinary mice: the ability to see near-infrared light.
The artificial 'chameleon skin' changes colour when exposed to light and could be used in applications such as active camouflage and large-scale dynamic displays.
The Malvern Zetasizer range has helped improve product quality and stability of a wide range of particles and biomolecules and, more recently, protein-based drug formulations.
The PAMAS SVSS is a standard laboratory particle counter for pharmaceutical applications (control of parenterals, infusion solutions, ophthalmic and oral fluids) and other low-viscous liquids. The instrument may be used standalone or software controlled.
The CAMSIZER P4, from Retsch Technology, analyses all size and shape parameters of a variety of bulk materials and granulates, including spherical and irregularly shaped grains and crystals, spray-dried and fluid bed granular materials, pellets and extrudates.
Researchers have discovered a phenomenon known as inorganic isomerisation, in which inorganic materials are able to switch between discrete states almost instantaneously.
Reduce the need for time-consuming and expensive analysis using Multi-Angle Dynamic Light Scattering (MADLS)14 August, 2018
Achieve higher resolution particle size and concentration analysis.
Built on the Zetasizer Nano range, the Zetasizer Pro and Ultra systems from Malvern Panalytical deliver enhanced speed and ease of use for the measurement of particle and molecular size, particle charge and particle concentration.
The Izon qViro-X is a system designed for size, concentration and aggregation data for bacteria, viruses and vaccines. The product directly measures the size of individual nanoparticles in solution, to build up a profile of concentration (viral titre) against size and, therefore, the degree of sample aggregation.
UNSW scientists have developed a way to control the shape of polymer molecules so they self-assemble into non-spherical nanoparticles. Their work is expected to improve the delivery of toxic drugs to tumours.
Particle & Surface Sciences' POLA 2000 for particle sizing and counting has been modified to include extra applications.
The University of Melbourne boosts its toolkit for nanoparticle analysis with the Malvern NanoSight NS30010 April, 2017
The Malvern NanoSight NS300, recently installed within the Materials Characterisation and Fabrication Platform (MCFP) at the University of Melbourne, is providing an easy-to-use, reproducible platform for nanoparticle characterisation.
Malvern Instrument's Mastersizer 3000 uses laser diffraction for non-destructive automated particle size distribution measurements. It offers a broad measurement range, sample flexibility and fast data acquisition.
LGC has been using Postnova Analytics' AF2000 field-flow fractionation (FFF) system, coupled to ICP-MS, to characterise nanomaterials in complex sample matrices for clinical, cosmetic and food use.
Malvern NanoSight NS300 particle-by-particle size and concentration measurement with fluorescence detection01 January, 2017
The NanoSight NS300 from Malvern Instruments uses nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA) to analyse particles in liquids from 10–2000 nm in diameter.
