Andor Technology’s electron multiplying CCD camera is being used in combination with an imaging spectrograph and a sheath flow cuvette by researchers at the La Jolla Bioengineering Institute in California, USA. They have been able to analyse individual nanoparticles at rates of 100 per second or faster.
