The NanoSight uses Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) to characterize nanoparticles from 10nm -2000nm in solution. Each particle is individually but simultaneously analyzed by direct observation and measurement of diffusion events. Both particle size and concentration are measured, while a fluorescence mode provides differentiation of labelled or naturally fluorescing particles. 

Measuring Range

Particle size: 10nm to 2000nm.
Concentration: 106 to 109 particles per mL.
Temperature control: 5°C below ambient to 50°C.


Focus: computer controlled motorized focus.
Camera: sCMOS 2.8 megapixels
Laser wavelength: 405nm (violet), 488nm (blue), 532nm (green) or 642nm (red).
Fluorescence: motorized 6 place filter wheel with choice of filters.

Samples Throughput

About 20 samples per 8 h day


Syringe pump: increased statistical robustness of concentration data
Autosampler: Analyses of multiple runs (96 samples/16h – 30min instrument set-up time)


Build-it data evaluation.
Built-in tools for method development.
21 CFR Part 11 Enables an operating mode that assists with ER/ES compliance.
Flexible reporting.
