Imaging nanoparticles

User Rating: / 1

Andor Technology’s electron multiplying CCD camera is being used in combination with an imaging spectrograph and a sheath flow cuvette by researchers at the La Jolla Bioengineering Institute in California, USA. They have been able to analyse individual nanoparticles at rates of 100 per second or faster. This will remove current bottlenecks with characterising single nanoparticles, potentially leading to the development of brighter and more uniform tags for use in biomolecular detection and cancer therapeutics.
