FX-Nano Technology by Particle Sizing Systems, An Entegris Company

In recent years, research efforts in nanotechnology have focused on easy-to-use tools for characterizing nanoparticles. There are numerous established techniques in the area of particle sizing for measuring particle size distributions of nano-dispersions, yet only few of them provide quantitative information in the 0.1 to 1 micron range.

The new FX-Nano technology, available from Particle Sizing Systems, An Entegris Company, uses SPOS technology for detecting single particle and sizing. It is based on a novel approach that uses a focused laser beam to attain a more intensely-illuminated and much smaller view volume.

Key Features

The main features of the FX-Nano technology are:

  • Can count and size particles as small as 150 nanometers
  • Operates at much higher particle concentrations – above 1,000,000/mL
  • Requires little or no dilution for most protein suspensions of interest
  • SPOS technology helps quantify oversized particles, allowing manufacturers to enhance products as varied as IV emulsions and microprocessors
  • Characterizes much smaller nanoparticles, leading to the introduction of innovative and better protein drugs and therapies.
