Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis

ZetaView® QUATT (Particle Metrix Inc.)

  • Measuring hydrodynamic number average particle size, concentration and surface charge.
  • Selective analysis of size sub-populations in the samples.
  • Enhanced fluorescence measurement capability. Multi-wavelength F-NTA allows assessing the purity of exosomes isolation, phenotyping of EVS, measurement of sEV dsDNA.
  • Virus and Virus like particles characterization, defined virions can be stained and thus identified from complex samples such as patient material. F-NTA can be used to analyze the amount of successfully loaded (nucleic acid-containing) virions.

Laser wavelength: 405 nm, 488 nm, 520 nm, 640 nm

Key Applications

  • Extracellular Vesicles
