world-leading manufacturers of unique nanoparticle characterization technology,
announces that more than 100 third party publications citing the use of their
nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA) technology are now available in print.
In less than five years since NanoSight has been supplying instrumentation
to laboratories around the world, a new milestone has been reached: the publication
of the 100th review paper citing NTA technology. The 100th paper was published
in volume seven of the journal, Environmental Chemistry and came from the group
of Professor Martin Hasselöv at the University of Gothenburg: "Measurements
of nanoparticle number concentrations and size distributions in contrasting
aquatic environments using nanoparticle tracking analysis," Environmental
Chemistry 7(1) 67–81.
NanoSight was founded by its technical director, Dr Bob Carr, one of the world's
most "exceptionally innovative scientists and one of the best lateral
thinkers I've ever met." These words come from Professor Tony Atkinson,
Chairman of Morvus Technologies and Director of a number of leading technology
companies including Fusion IP plc and TMO Renewables Limited.
Atkinson considers the growth of NanoSight as quite a remarkable story. "To
have more than 100 papers published since the introduction of the technique
demonstrates a significant degree of success around the world. I am glad that
my belief in the technology at the early investment stages has been proved correct.
Bob's exceptional breadth of scientific knowledge across many disciplines
is unusual and it is this that has enabled him to take an initial experimental
observation and turn it into an instrument that answers so many characterization
questions on the nanoscale."
Professor John Rarity, head of the Photonics Group at the University of Bristol
has seen Bob Carr change from a biologist to biophysicist and engineer as he
learned about light scattering techniques. "I have been amazed at Bob's
flexibility to take on new ideas to lead his company forward and cross the gap
from invention to securing NTA as an accepted nanoparticle characterization
