Introducing the new NS500 system from NanoSight Ltd.
NanoSight, manufacturers of unique nanoparticle characterization technology, announce their new NS500 system incorporating new hardware and software to deliver NanoSight's growing capability in particle-by-particle characterization in an automated package.
NanoSight's technology is called Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA). It provides a high-resolution particle size distribution by tracking individual particles as small as 10nm in real time, simultaneously tracking and sizing whole populations. The result is a particle size distribution in the range of 10 - 1,000nm. NTA also provides count and concentration data.
The NS500 adds fluorescence capability, enabling the user to tune into individual particles such as individual quantum dots. The fluid handling capability of NS500 provides the user with auto sample presentation and in-situ cleaning. It is now a routine process to clean the cell with the ability to purge, flush and load samples through user-customizable software. Ease of use is further enhanced with a motorized focus function to readily home in on the particles under study. In direct response to user feedback, this is augmented with an indexed motorized stage, controlled through the software and providing excellent repeatability in positioning. The temperature control of the cell (15˚C to 55˚C) and programmable temperature cycling with rapid attainment of set-point facilitates faster sample measurement and turnaround.
The NS500 provides an easy-to-use, reproducible platform applicable for specific and general nanoparticle characterization use. So whether the application is to control size in nanoparticle development, provide rapid virus titer or measure the kinetics of protein aggregation, the NS500 system is the solution.
