First of all let me wish you all the best for seasonal celebrations where-ever you are on this planet. Happy nano-wishes to everyone!
The last few weeks were exciting with some regulatory news from ECHA, EU Commission and our colleagues from Australia. There is strong momentum in graphene community to develop some certification and some are already rolling it out on a nation-wide scale. New nanomaterial safety assessment protocols were proposed by NRDC, ISO and OECD. Commercial news came from Leonie Hill Capital, Microtrack, Malvern and Nantero.

NTA/PTA ISO Standard is now published !
After over 3 years of work we are finally happy to announce that today (15 December 2016) is the day of the publication of ISO 19430 entitled “Particle size analysis — Particle tracking analysis (PTA) method”. PTA, also known as Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) is used in a number of areas such as particle dispersion analysis where a number-based PSDs are required, protein aggregation processes, fine bubble detection and characterisation and many more.
BREC Solutions offers PTA/NTA analysis services for dispersion evaluations. This measurement is now directly applicable to EU nanomaterial definition compliance and data stewardship. Contact us to find out more about our services.
Please note that we work with a number of experts in nanotechnology area to deliver a range of services from nanomaterial characterisation to strategic project reviews, market analysis and feasibility studies.
