Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis for Characterization of Biological Nanoparticles10 July 2012
Researchers at the University of Colorado have used Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) for characterization of biological nanoparticles and the work has been carried out at Professor Hang Yin’s group. The Yin research Lab, University of Colorado at Boulder is engaged in the interdisciplinary research studies interfacing Chemistry, Biology and Engineering.
The research group’s main focus is to study structure based drug design and mainly to identify and design peptides and these peptides then can potentially be used for detecting highly curve extracellular vesicles and micro vesicles. The research group is currently also studying these micro vesicles as potential biomarkers for tumor progression and as per the research the study will help in finding the metastasis stage of cancer.
The research team comprising Professor Hang, Leslie-Anne Morton and Jonel Saludes uses NanoSight LM10 system, which is one of the best systems from NanoSight, the leading manufacturer of unique nanoparticle characterization technology. The research findings of the group has recently been published in the Journal of Visualized Experimentation.
