Nanoparticle drug delivery systems (nanoDDS) are among the most promising avenues for effective treatment of many disorders, accomplished by the targeted release of chemotherapeutics, peptides, siRNA or genetic material. Some of the key analytical challenges faced by nanoDDS researchers and drug product developers include the determination of accurate, high-resolution size distributions; reliable and non-perturbative assessments of particle conformation, stability and payload; and rapid, effective formulation screens.

This webinar describes a suite of analytical techniques, all based on light scattering, that addresses many of these challenges. We review light scattering fundamentals, then present examples illustrating how Wyatt's unique light scattering instrumentation enhances productivity in the course of studying and developing nanoDDS including liposomes, VLPs, polymeric micelles, polymer-encapsulated therapeutics and nanogels.
