Characterising ‘nanoconstructs’ for biomedical applications

22 May, 2012

At Duke University, Professor Tuan Vo-Dinh and his research group have been characterising metal nanoparticle construct materials for use in biosensing, imaging and cancer therapy. This has been made possible through particle charcterisation technology manufacturer NanoSight and the company’s Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA).

STAUFF LasPaC II laser particle counter

17 April, 2012

The LasPaC II from STAUFF is an eight-channel, double laser particle counter that records the dirt content in mineral oil-based hydraulic fluids in the pressure range of between 2 and 420 bar. With the aid of an additional ‘bottle sampler’, it is also possible to analyse previously taken samples with this equipment.
