Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA): Free Online Webinar (Tuesday, November 17) Hosted by Malvern (NanoSight Instruments); NTA Is Frequently Used in Exosome & Other Nanoparticle Studies

On Tuesday, November 17, Malvern (producer of NanoSight Instruments) will host a free online webinar to describe the Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) technique and how it affords useful information in various synthetic nanoparticle systems. The webinar is titled “Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) Application: Better Understanding Synthetic Nanoparticle Systems.” This webinar will take place from 10.30 am to 11.30 am Eastern Standard Time (EST). The NTA technique enables the measurement of particle size, particle concentration, and Zeta potential. It should be noted that NTA is frequently used in exosome studies. In Tuesday’s webinar, Malvern will describe how NTA has been used to measure the effects of certain buffers on the aggregation of liposome-insulin receptor complexes. The characterization of iron-oxide loaded polymer nanoparticles will also be discussed. Finally, Malvern will briefly demonstrate how NTA can characterize other synthetic nanoparticle systems. The webinar speaker will be Ragy Ragheb, Ph.D., a Technical Specialist at Malvern Instruments, who specialized in products using the NTA and dynamic light scattering (DLS) techniques. Dr. Ragy received his doctorate from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and completed his post-doctoral work at Yale University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering, where he developed a range of particle-based systems for therapeutic delivery and diagnostic applications, as well as a magnetically separable carbon-nanotube-polymer nanoparticle hybrid system for immunotherapy. These and other projects have enabled Dr. Ragheb to develop a proficiency in real-world applications for particle characterization techniques and research. Malvern believes that “this informative discussion will be ideal if you are responsible for driving forwarding and enhancing your organization’s research capabilities—and perfect for those working in biopaharmacuetical, pharamaceutical, or academic research. Whether you are an existing user of a Malvern NanoSight Instrument or simply interested in learning about the latest technologies for synthetic nanoparticle systems, then this is a great opportunity to learn from our application experts.” The image here shows a Malvern NanoSight Instrument.
