Nano-particles are defined as small objects, having nanometer size in the range of 1-100 nano-meters. These particles can be divided into different types such as ultrafine particles, coarse particles and fine particles according to their diameters. Nano-particle based analysis instrument are commonly used to detect the diameter of the nano-particles. There are two methods commonly used for detecting or analyzing nano-particle size namely by microscopic techniques and by utilizing relation between particle behavior and its size. The particle size analysis of nano-particles can be determined using large number of commercially available instruments such as flow cytometry, microscopic techniques, electron imaging techniques and others. The nano-particle size analysis instruments are widely used in life-science industry due to its high accuracy to measure particle size for analytical and scientific purpose.
One of the key factors driving nano-particle size analysis instrumentation in the life sciences market is the advancement in technology and introduction of novel methods for nano particle analysis by key market players. For example, NanoSight provides Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) technique, unique method for analyzing nano particles in liquid medium. This technique is featured with unique single particle detection system that allows the measurement of particles in the range of 10-2000 nm in liquid suspension. Thus, advancement and introduction of new methods will boost the uptake of nano-particle size analysis instrumentation hence drives the market growth.
