Nanoparticle Metrics

Increased focus on developing novel drug delivery systems and targeted therapies through the use of nanotechnology and nanomaterials is translating to a blast of investigational new drug (IND) applications, new drug applications (NDAs), and abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs) for drug products containing nanomaterials to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

AlphaNanoTech provides full spectra of physicochemical characterization services by the most advanced techniques to shorten your path to success.



  • Size and Size Distribution

- Electron Microscopy by TEM/SEM for direct measurement of nanomaterials.

- Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA), Dynamic and Static Light Scattering for analysis of nanoparticle suspensions in solution.

- Laser Diffraction for analysis of dry powders and sprays.

-Tunable Resistive Pulse Sensing (TRPS) for analysis of nanoparticle suspensions in solution.

  • Concentration

Characterization of the number of particles per mL of solution is offered thorough TRPS or NTA platforms

  • Zeta-potential
Characterization of surface charge to predict shelf-life, stability and behavior in biological fluids

Microparticle Metrics

Laser Diffraction Analysis for particles size distribution in the range 100 nm to 10 mm. Most widely used technique for microparticles in solution, inhalers, nasal sprays, spray particle and spray droplet size measurement. The Alpha Nano Tech use state of the art Spraytec (Malvern) and Microtrac instruments to deliver reliable data.
