Spectradyne Partners with Particle Technology Labs for Measurement Services

Torrance, CA | Posted on December 6th, 2018

Spectradyne is happy to announce a new partnership with Particle Technology Labs to provide analytical measurement services using its nCS1TM instrument. Particle Technology Labs is a premier analytical testing facility located in Downers Grove, Illinois, that is ISO certified to provide a broad array of measurement services.

Spectradyne’s CEO Jean-Luc Fraikin described the importance of the deal: “This partnership will expand access to the powerful insights that our technology delivers by providing a low barrier to entry for scientists who are new to Microfluidic Resistive Pulse Sensing (MRPS). Particle Technology Labs is already a trusted provider of high-quality analytical services in many of our target markets, and Spectradyne will provide PTL with increased access to biological markets, including extracellular vesicle research in particular.”

“PTL has used electric sensing zone technology for over 25 years,” said William Kopesky, Director of Analytical Services at PTL. “In fact, it was the first analytical technique we offered. Spectradyne is using this methodology to size and count particles in the submicron range, and we are excited to collaborate with them. The nCS1 instrument will add an additional orthogonal high-resolution technique to our current nanoparticle characterization capabilities. This particle size range is an active and rapidly growing area of research for our clients in the field of exosomes in particular, although a wide variety of other sample types in the nano region can be characterized by this new instrument as well.”


About Spectradyne
Spectradyne’s mission is to improve the efficacy and safety of nanomaterials through better metrology. Spectradyne’s technology leverages microfluidics and advanced electrical sensing techniques to measure particle concentration and size with unprecedented accuracy, and requires only a tiny fraction of the sample needed by other methods.
