Measuring Small Quantities of dry Powder using the Aero S and Mastersizer 3000
In this application note, we measure aliquots as small as 5mg of fine grade, pharmaceutical lactose and show that the measurement reproducibility is well-within the ISO laser diffraction standard [1] guidelines on repeatability. This fine grade of lactose was chosen as both an established model material for active pharmaceutical ingredients and as a highly cohesive powder that is difficult to disperse.

Measuring Small Volumes of Nanoparticles using the Mastersizer 3000 and Hydro SV
Nanoparticles are an increasingly important class of materials with wide-ranging applications in catalysis, coatings, pigments, cosmetics, electronics, food and medical industries. The physical and chemical properties of nanoparticles are highly sensitive to particle morphology, including particle size.

Characterizing Opthalmic Viscosurgical Devices (OVDs) using a Rotational Rheometer
There is now an International Standard (ISO15798:2013) detailing the requirements for characterizing these materials in terms of their biological, chemical and physical characteristics. For the purpose of this application note we are concerned with the section of the standard dealing with rheological characterisation.

NTA: Exosomes and Microvesicles - General
| By Malvern Instruments
The study of exosomes and other cell-derived microvesicles is an area of rapidly growing importance and the subject of intense interest and research. The previous lack of suitable methods for their detection, analysis, enumeration and phenotyping is proving to be a significant limitation in these studies. This chapter shows the degree to which the technique of NTA is helping to address these problems.
