Research efforts in nanotechnology over recent years have focused on easy-to-use tools for characterizing nanoparticles. There are several well-known techniques in the area of particle sizing for evaluating particle size distributions of nano-dispersions, but only few of them can offer quantitative information from 0.1 to 1 microns.
Particle Sizing Systems’ new FX-Nano technology uses SPOS technology for detecting single-particle and sizing. This technology is based on a novel approach that utilizes a focused laser beam to get a more intensely-illuminated and much smaller view volume.
The features of the FX-Nano technology are:
Can count and size particles as small as 150 nanometers.
Requires little or no dilution for most protein suspensions of interest.
Operates at much higher particle concentrations – above 1,000,000/mL.
Uses SPOS technology to quantify oversized particles, allowing manufacturers to enhance products as varied as IV emulsions and microprocessors.
Characterizes much smaller nanoparticles, leading to the introduction of new and better protein drugs and therapies.
