New software for Malvern’s NanoSight NTA Systems Improves User Experience



Published July 18, 2014
Malvern Instruments has launched NTA 3.0, a new version of the software that drives its NanoSight Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) systems. With an improved, easy-to-use interface, the new NTA 3.0 software makes accessing programs and protocols quick and convenient. It also incorporates an upgraded high-resolution particle size distribution algorithm, and supports advanced image analysis, particle detection and tracking, as well as providing improved vibration correction. The new software is designed for use across the complete NanoSight NTA range and will be integral to all new systems shipped, while existing users can download their free upgrade via the appropriate product page on the Malvern website:

Malvern NanoSight systems use Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) to characterize nanoparticles in solution in the size range 10 nm to 2000 nm (depending on the sample). Each particle is analyzed individually by direct observation and measurement of diffusion events. This particle-by-particle methodology produces high resolution results for particle size distribution and concentration, while visual validation provides additional data confidence. Both particle size and concentration are measured, while a fluorescence mode provides differentiation of labeled or naturally fluorescing particles.

NTA 3.0 features automatic, integrated hardware detection and communication for all the systems in the NanoSight range. Compared with previous versions it generates fewer files per experiment and results are displayed on clear, concise spreadsheets. Particle size distributions are shown as histograms for easy interpretation.

NanoSight NTA systems are part of Malvern’s expanding portfolio for characterization at the nanoscale. By updating software for greater ease of use and more efficient testing, NanoSight NTA users can be sure of getting the best possible performance from their system.
