NanoSight Pro

The Malvern NanoSight Pro instrument provides an easy-to-use, reproducible platform for nanoparticle characterisation.

The NanoSight Pro utilises Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) to characterise nanoparticles from 10nm - 2000 nm in solution. This particle-by-particle methodology produces high resolution results for particle size distribution and concentration while visual validation gives users extra confidence in the data. As well as particle size and concentration, protein aggregation and viscosity can all be analysed while a fluorescence mode provides detection of labelled particles.
