Night vision enabled by nanoparticles

05 September, 2019

US scientists have used nanoparticles to confer a real superpower on ordinary mice: the ability to see near-infrared light.

Colour-changing 'chameleon skin' powered by nanomachines

27 August, 2019

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.

Malvern Zetasizer Pro and Ultra bioparticle characterisation tool

01 July, 2019

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.

PAMAS SVSS particle counter

18 June, 2019

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.

Retsch Technology CAMSIZER P4 particle analyser

27 March, 2019

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.

Nanoparticles switch phases in flight

27 February, 2019

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.

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.
