Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis - NanoSight in 90 secondsVideo
The Malvern NanoSight range of instruments utilizes Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) to characterize nanoparticles including exosomes, from 10nm -2000nm* in solution.
Each particle is individually but simultaneously analyzed by direct observation and measurement of diffusion events. This particle-by-particle methodology produces high resolution results for particle size distribution and count, while visual validation provides users with additional confidence in their data. Both particle size and count are measured, while a fluorescence mode provides differentiation of labelled or naturally fluorescing particles.
Behind the Science, S2-Ep1: Classic rock & HPLC with Pat McDonaldVideo
Every good rock band starts in the basement. So that's where we're heading ... to the basement of Waters to see the first chromatography systems! Pat McDonald, corporate fellow emeritus at Waters, tells us about Jim Waters and Waters Associates' inventions.
The first commercial "high pressure" chromatography system for polymer chemists, the GPC-100, from 1963. The ALC-100, developed in late 1970 for separating isomers in the synthesis of B12. The M6000 pump that came in 1972, followed by the U6K injector, the first commercial "small" particle columns (10 µm!). Bringing those pieces into an assembly led to the first modern "high performance" liquid chromatography instrument, now known as HPLC.
