Nanocapillary Electrokinetic Tracking Stage

Tracking nanoparticle movements and its charge at the nanoscale will be crucial to developing novel approaches in therapeutics, diagnostics, and environmental health monitoring. The nanoCET platform will allow experts to measure the accurate size, concentration, and charge of single nanometric objects using their scattered light. By combining microfluidics with fiber-based illumination, nanoCET can achieve high signal-to-background ratios and unprecedented frame rates. Commercializing this technology will empower experts in life science research and analytical chemistry with faster, more sensitive, and more accurate nano-particle analysis. It will also enable the development of standard analytical instrumentation for nanoparticle-based diagnostics and environmental health monitoring.
