How to master Lipid Nanoparticle & Liposome Characterization with Light Scattering

Recent breakthroughs with mRNA-based vaccines highlight the potential of lipid-based particles as powerful and versatile delivery vectors for vaccines and gene therapies. Light scattering techniques are used extensively in the characterization of lipid nanoparticle and liposome research. The techniques are used to measure particle size, stability, zeta potential and particle concentration. 

The Zetasizer range of light scattering instruments provides high quality, stability-indicating data for drug molecules and their formulations. Delivering data in a short time frame, the Zetasizer allows you to implement this technique throughout the development pipeline.   

This webinar explores the challenges and opportunities drug and vaccine developers are currently facing and explains how the Zetasizer can be used to address these and to optimize your formulations.
