Horiba to distribute Manta nanoparticle tracking analyzer in the Americas

Jan. 17, 2017
Horiba Scientific and Manta Instruments will expand sales and support for a nanoparticle tracking analysis system.

Horiba Scientific (Irvine, CA) and Manta Instruments (San Diego, CA) have entered into an agreement in which the two companies will expand sales and support for Manta's ViewSizer 3000 nanoparticle tracking analysis system in the laboratory instrumentation market.

The system includes proprietary illumination and detection methods to allow visualization, measurement, and counting of nanoparticles over a wide range of sizes. It can characterize polydisperse assemblages of particles in liquids, and it can resolve separate size modes in complex samples. The kinetics of various particle processes, such as aggregation, self-assembly, crystallization, and dissolution, can be visualized and quantified in real time.

The ViewSizer 3000 nanoparticle tracking analysis system.

The system's technology was developed by experienced nanoparticle scientists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) who had become frustrated by the limitations of existing nanoparticle characterization instruments. Years of their research resulted in a system that utilizes an absolute method, and requires no calibration, reference standards, or prior knowledge of the particle properties.

The system was further refined by Manta Instruments during a year-long beta program, with 12 partners in three separate industries, prior to its initial market introduction in 2016.
