qNano Gold

qNano uses unique nanopore-based detection to enable the physical properties of a wide range of particle types to be accurately measured. The World's Most Detailed Information for Each Individual Nanoparticle

Detailed Multi-Parameter Analysis.

Particle-by-particle measurement through qNano enables detailed determination of:

  •     Particle Size
  •     Concentration
  •     Particle Interactions
  •     Particle Zeta-potential

Nanopore-based detection allows thousands of particles to be measured individually, providing far greater detail and accuracy than light-based techniques.

Tunable Resistive Pulse Sensing with qNano
Accurate Particle Size and Sample Polydispersity.

Size Tunable Nanopores accurately measure each particle, providing representative information on the size and polydispersity of mixtures.

Particle-by-Particle Charge Analysis

qNano uniquely measures the size and zeta-potential of each individual particle in solution simultaneously, providing a high level of detail for your sample.

Quick, Precise Concentration Measurement.

Nanopore-based sensing counts particles precisely, and rapidly determines the number of particles per mL of sample. A large concentration range is covered, spanning 105 - 1012 particles per mL.

More Accurate than Light-based Approaches.

Particle-by-particle measurement elimates the data skewing that occurs with intensity-weighted biased approaches such as Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS).

Real-Time Monitoring of Particle Interactions.

Particle-by-particle measurement builds up population-level data in real time, allowing the dynamics of particle-particle, particle-biomolecule, functionalization and aggregation interactions to be analysed.

Small Sample Volume. Physiologically Relevant Conditions.

Analysis involves pipetting 40 μL of sample into the sample chamber of the qNano. There is no need for pre-treatment, and particles can be studied under physiologically relevant conditions.

Compact. Portable. Fast.

qNano is portable, compact (~12.5 cm base, 22 cm tall) and fast. Analysis of thousands of particles usually takes only 10-15 minutes.

Cost Effective.

qNano makes new applications available to researchers at a fraction of the cost of existing technologies.
