Life Scientists Respond Enthusiastically to DLS System
Dec 20 2005 Read 1787 Times
The Advanced Drug Delivery group at Nottingham University (UK) has a strong focus in developing colloidal and nanoparticulate drug delivery systems, so characterisation of the particles is an essential and routine step in their work. Increasingly other groups within the School of Pharmacy have also shown interest in measuring nanoparticulates. Dr Martin Garnett of the Advanced Drug Delivery Group commented "The Viscotek 802 appealed to us because it has a small bench footprint, so it was easy to fit in our lab to expand our capacity to measure a wide range of particle sizes. The machine is easy to use and robust, so it can be used by a range of people without too much training or supervision. We have found it to be as accurate to use and quicker than our older instrument. One of the most useful features however, is the low sample volume. As some of our routine work involves many measurements using expensive components, the ability to measure particle sizes on 50 or 12 microlitre volumes is a welcome feature".
