Event details

NanoSight is pleased to invite you to an upcoming demonstration on the NanoSight technology for imaging, sizing and counting nanoparticles in liquid suspension. The technique represents a leap forward in nano-particle characterisation and offers substantial advantages over existing technologies such as Dynamic Light Scattering, Electron Microscopy or Flow Cytometry.

The technology images particles individually in liquid suspension and then determines particle size on a particle-by-particle basis based on the Brownian motion of each particle. It provides high resolution number-based distributions even in very polydisperse samples. This particle-by-particle approach overcomes the inherent weakness of DLS where the average particle size is heavily skewed towards any larger/brighter particles within a poly-disperse sample. The technique can also work under fluorescence mode as well as light scatter mode and hence those people working with fluorescently labelled particles/quantum dots will find the technique of additional interest.

If you would like to bring samples for testing on the day, please feel free to bring a couple with you.

There will also be an opportunity to hear more about the background technology and its applications.

Please feel free to forward this email to other colleagues who might be interested in attending. Everybody welcome.
