Malvern Instruments and the Birck Nanotechnology Center at Purdue University jointly hostd a one day symposium examining the application of light scattering techniques in the characterization of nanoparticles. The symposium was designed for scientists who manufacture, process or formulate nanoparticles, and those working with liposome and biomolecule applications in the area of drug delivery.
Speakers from Purdue and Malvern Instruments discussed the application of chromatography, dynamic light scattering, static light scattering and electrophoretic light scattering in the characterization of nanoparticles. Typical application examples include: micelle formation and surface interaction; biomolecular structure and stability; suspension stability; and molecular weight determination.
The key focus of the symposium is to demonstrate how different analytical techniques provide the information needed to advance nanotechnology.
