Virtual conference: Drug Delivery & Precision Medicine

Malvern Panalytical is a proud sponsor of National University of Singapore's (NUS) virtual conference "Explain my research" virtual conference which focuses on drug delivery and precision medicine. During this conference, you will hear from an international line-up of distinguished speakers as they discuss their latest research and outcomes relating to future health, particle characterization, targeted gene delivery systems, and precision medicine. Also look forward to a showcase of 2 cutting-edged startups from NUS!

Day 1 will see the release of short, 10-min webinars from researchers worldwide. The secret portal website link will only be released to registered participants. Input your burning questions into the forum and get ready for Day 2!

Day 2 gives you the opportunity to interact with many of these distinguished speakers LIVE at a panel. Zoom link will be released only to registered participants.

More information about the nanoparticle characterisation tools discussed
NanoSight: Utilizing Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA), Malvern Panalytical’s NanoSight allows one to visualise and measure nanoparticle concentraion, particle size from 0.01 - 1 µm* in solution as well as characterise protein aggregation in real time. Hence making it a good companion for studies in viral vaccine research, nanotoxicology and biomarker detection, characterising extracellular vesicles for disease state studies. Learn from our applications team 

Zetasizer Ultra: The Zetasizer Ultra is the world’s most capable combined DLS and ELS system, incorporating Non-Invasive Back Scatter (NIBS®) and, uniquely, Multi-Angle Dynamic Light Scattering (MADLS) technology for the measurement of particle and molecular size. NIBS provides the versatility and sensitivity to measure over a wide concentration range, while MADLS permits a higher resolution view into your sample’s size distribution for those critical measurements.
An extension to MADLS affords the ability to directly analyze particle concentration. The measurement of particle concentration is calibration-free, suitable for a wide range of materials, requires no or little dilution, and is quick to use – all of which make it ideal as a screening technique. This is a unique capability of the Zetasizer Ultra which can even be applied to samples such as viruses and VLPs, which were previously very challenging to measure.
