Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis Study of the Applications and Characterisation of Gold Nanoparticles

Gold nanoparticles have proven to be one of the most versatile and adaptable varieties of nanoparticle, and are subsequently among the most frequently researched.

Applications range from the biological to the material, and include nanomedicine, drug delivery, cancer diagnostics, biological scaffolds, biosensors, contrast agents, catalysts, and CMP slurries for the manufacturing of microprocessors.

This wide-ranging application space is made possible by their versatile optical properties, compatibility with a variety of surface chemistries, and their well-studied synthesis and preparation.

Our Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) technology utilizes the properties of both light scattering and Brownian motion in order to obtain the particle size distribution of samples in liquid suspension. Here we present examples of different types of gold nanoparticle samples characterized by NTA.
