NanoSight: Single Nanoparticle Visualization and Sizing Technique for Multi-Parameter Analysis

Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) is a new technique for direct visualization and analysis of nanoparticles in suspension, providing a unique range of capabilities, including:

  • Particle-by-particle size analysis, yielding high resolution and accurate measurement of size distributions.
  • Direct, live view of particles in suspension.
  • Measurement of additional parameters such as concentration (particle count) and scattering intensity.
  • Measurement of sizes as small as 10nm
  • Fluorescence mode for identification of tagged species
  • Information rich view of particles in real time.

The NTA technique combines the speed and statistical validity of traditional light scattering techniques with the resolution and sensitivity of microscopy techniques. This presentation will review the theoretical basis for this new technique, giving example applications and data, and comparisons to other techniques.

About NanoSight:

NanoSight Ltd, of Salisbury, UK, is the world leading provider of instruments for the optical detection and real time analysis of sub-micron particles. The Company supplies unique instruments for nanoparticle analysis in the sub-micron region that go far beyond existing light scattering techniques in the characterization of polydispersed systems. Founded in 2004, the company currently has more than 200 systems in service worldwide, having begun commercial sales in 2006. For more information, visit .
