/PRNewswire/ --
NanoSight is delighted to welcome publication of American Society of Testing
Materials ASTM E2834 - Standard Guide for Measurement of Particle Size
Distribution of Nanomaterials in Suspension by Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis
(NTA).
This document details application of Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) to
measurement of particle size distributions for suspended particles from ~10nm
to the onset of sedimentation.
Duncan Griffiths, NanoSight's
USA
West Sales Manager comments "This
document has taken almost three years to develop. It provides a rigorous
review of the core science driving Brownian motion and the derived
parameters of mean, mode, percentile values and concentration. The scrutiny
of demanding third-party experts has been fundamental in producing a
thorough appraisal of NTA. The result is a meticulous presentation of science
and methodology. We are delighted".
The UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL) has seen NanoSight develop NTA
since its early days more than five years ago. Helen Sharman from NPL
comments: "NPL has been working on the characterization of nanomaterials for
many years, in-part collaborating with NanoSight. The nanomaterials team has
followed the development of the NTA technique with great interest due to its
unique capability in the area of nanometrology. As the UK's national
measurement institute, NPL recognizes the importance of this standard and the
capability of the NanoSight instrumentation to provide consistent, precise and
comparable data."
NanoSight CEO Jeremy Warren adds "Whilst this standard is a milestone, it is
also a building block. Many NanoSight users have requested this definition of
the technique as they present data in research papers and to regulatory bodies
for product approvals and clinical trials. We will now move to provide industry
with test methods for specific materials to help lock down SOPs. The timing of
this publication is helpful as the European Commission move to consider
methodologies to address the characterization challenges of their recently-
published definition of nanomaterials.
Here we see a significant role for NTA's
unique nanoparticle counting capability".
