Izon Science qVIRO-X nanoparticle measurement system

22 November, 2017 | Supplied by: Particle & Surface Sciences Pty Ltd

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.
