Salisbury, UK, 29th May 2013: NanoSight, leading manufacturers of unique nanoparticle characterization technology, will address the challenges of nanoparticle control and analysis in the latest of their popular webinar program. This will be held on Thursday 6th June.

On Thursday 6th June at 1530 and 1730 BST time (1030 & 1230 EDT), NanoSight will host a webinar to look at how Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) is used to as a characterization tool during the development of drug delivery systems. NanoSight will:

• Discuss drug delivery systems, what’s available and the advantages of nanoparticles.

• Briefly introduce those unfamiliar to NTA to this technology and the data it provides.

• Present recent data on the use of NTA in characterizing drug delivery systems of liposomes, polymer carriers and for prodrugs.

Drug delivery applications are attractive option as they have the potential to allow a medicine to preferentially act at the site of disease and have reduced side effects. The webinar will discuss how nano-scale therapeutics are particularly suited for drug delivery and what types are available. Particle size is a key parameter when characterizing nano-particles. NTA has been used in the research of drug delivery systems of liposomes, polymer carriers and prodrugs. This webinar will be of particular interest to those working in drug and biotherapeutics research, development and formulation, from Project Managers to Bench Scientists.

The webinar will be led by Pauline Carnell (Senior Applications Scientist) and Jeremy Warren (CEO). The webinar will be both informative and interactive. Register now and join in the discussions on this important issue: . It will also be available for viewing after the live event. The link will be the same.

About NanoSight:

NanoSight delivers the world’s most versatile and proven multi-parameter nanoparticle analysis in a single instrument. NanoSight’s “Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis” (NTA) detects and visualizes populations of nanoparticles in liquids down to 10 nm, dependent on material, and measures the size of each particle from direct observations of diffusion. Additionally, NanoSight measures concentration and a fluorescence mode differentiates suitably-labelled particles within complex background suspensions. Zeta potential measurements are similarly particle-specific. It is this particle-by-particle methodology that takes NTA beyond traditional light scattering and other ensemble techniques in providing high-resolution particle size distributions and validates data with information-rich video files of the particles moving under Brownian motion.

This simultaneous multiparameter characterization matches the demands of complex biological systems, hence its wide application in development of drug delivery systems, of viral vaccines, and in nanotoxicology. This real-time data gives insight into the kinetics of protein aggregation and other time-dependent phenomena in a qualitative and quantitative manner. NanoSight has a growing role in biodiagnostics, being proven in detection and speciation of nanovesicles (exosomes) and microvesicles.

NanoSight has installed more than 600 systems worldwide with users including BASF, GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Novartis, Pfizer, Proctor and Gamble, Roche and Unilever together with the most eminent universities and research institutes. NanoSight’s technology is validated by 800+ third party papers citing NanoSight results. NanoSight’s leadership position in nanoparticle characterization is consolidated further with publication of an ASTM International standard, ASTM E2834, which describes the NTA methodology for detection and analysis of nanoparticles.
