Malvern Zetasizer Pro and Ultra for nanoparticle measurement with MADLS

01 June, 2018

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.

Izon Science qVIRO-X nanoparticle measurement system

22 November, 2017

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.

Shape-shifting polymers could improve cancer drug delivery

03 November, 2017

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

03 August, 2017

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 NS300

10 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 Instruments Mastersizer 3000 particle size analyser

01 April, 2017

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.

Characterising nanomaterials in commercial products

09 January, 2017

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 detection

01 January, 2017

The NanoSight NS300 from Malvern Instruments uses nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA) to analyse particles in liquids from 10–2000 nm in diameter.

Imaging the inside of cells with nanoparticles

03 November, 2016

Researchers at the University of Tokyo have used MPC polymers to modify the surface of nanoparticles and, in doing so, discovered a new way to image the inside of cells.

Tiny particles transformed into Lego-like building blocks

12 October, 2016

Melbourne researchers have developed a nanoscale engineering method that transforms tiny particles into Lego-like modular building blocks.

Malvern Spraytec particle size measurement system

29 July, 2016

The Malvern Spraytec has been specifically designed to deliver precise aerosol and spray particle size analysis from an easy-to-use platform.

Bending the rules of the Pauli exclusion principle

18 July, 2016

Physicists have used steerable 'optical tweezers' to split minute clouds of ultracold atoms and slowly smash them together to directly observe a key theoretical principle of quantum mechanics — the Pauli exclusion principle.

Malvern Zetasizer Nano particle-sizing instrument

31 May, 2016

The Malvern Zetasizer Nano is a widely used system for nanoparticle, colloid and protein size, zeta potential, molecular weight, protein mobility and microrheology measurements.
