Dilute. Inject. Measure.

The Nano-α is a benchtop instrument that answers multiple characterisation questions in real-time with one simple non-destructive measurement. Our unique technology allows you to look inside unique nanoparticles with minimal sample preparation required.

Current methods for characterisation of nanoformulations are often expensive, inaccurate, require highly trained personnel and coupling of multiple analytical techniques to obtain the required results. The Nano-α supports the nanomedicine community by solving these key hurdles in nanoparticle characterisation.

Nano Alpha Instrument

Drug Load vs. size

Measure drug load per particle as a function of the particle diameter.

This is a unique measurement that no other technique can provide. Understand the link between drug loading and size/mass of your nanocarriers and optimise your formulation.

Drug release kinetics

Monitor the drug-release of your nanoformulation in real-time.

The Nano-α has the unique ability to measure the distribution of drug-loading on a particle-by-particle basis over time, all in a single experiment with no user interaction while the particles are offloading.

The technique can be applied to any host material, buffer solution or active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), and can be expanded to any complex engineered nanoparticles.

Surface coatings

Study the thickness and density of your core-shell nanoparticles.

The Nano-α allows you to characterise highly-engineered nanoparticles with complex structures – including PEG- and protein-coated nanoparticles, multicomponent inorganic nanoparticles and liposomes.

Core Shell Thickness Measurement

Sizing distributions

Measure the size and mass of your nanoparticles on a particle-by-particle basis – removing any bias towards larger/smaller particles in polydisperse samples.

The Nano-α measures both size and polarisability simultaneously, allowing you to understand your nanoformulations in exquisite detail.
