Fluorescence is increasingly considered as a tool within nanoparticle characterisation. The ability to positively identify particular subsets of nanoparticles within a sample is especially important for applications in life science, drug delivery, virology and exosomes’ research. In this introductory webinar we will first explain the fluorescence process and discuss the properties of fluorophores that you need to consider when choosing a label for your nanoparticles. Next we will briefly discuss some of the common approaches that have been used to produce fluorescently labelled nanoparticles. We will explain the “fluorescent mode” available with NanoSight instruments. And finally we give you a taste of some fluorescent nanoparticles that have been characterised with Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis. There will also be time to ask any questions that you have about getting started with fluorescent nanoparticle characterisation with your NanoSight instrument.
