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
- 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.
Size Tunable Nanopores accurately measure each particle, providing representative information on the size and polydispersity of mixtures.
qNano uniquely measures the size and zeta-potential of each individual particle in solution simultaneously, providing a high level of detail for your sample.
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.
Particle-by-particle measurement elimates the data skewing that occurs with intensity-weighted biased approaches such as Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS).
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.

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.
qNano is portable, compact (~12.5 cm base, 22 cm tall) and fast. Analysis of thousands of particles usually takes only 10-15 minutes.
qNano makes new applications available to researchers at a fraction of the cost of existing technologies.
