Recent publications using Spectradyne’s instruments


We recently uncovered a treasure-trove of new publications that use Spectradyne’s nCS1TM for careful science. Below are a few highlights, you can find them all in the “refereed journal articles” section of our Library!

  • Researchers at UCLA, Mayo Clinic and UC Irvine investigate using Spectradyne’s nCS1 if extracellular vesicles have the potential to serve as biomarkers for Parkinson’s disease. Find the article here.
  • Scientists at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, use microfluidic resistive pulse sensing (MRPS) to show that chronic opioid use modulates microbiota and intestinal barrier integrity. Read the paper in the journal Gut Microbes, here.
  • Scientists from Boehringer Ingelheim and Coriolis Pharma use the Spectradyne nCS1 to characterize nanoparticles measured with the FlowCam Nano. Access the article here.



Noteworthy blog posts

Find some useful summaries of select publications in our collection of blogs, all accessible through our library: Johns Hopkins University’s comparison of orthogonal measurement techniques for characterizing extracellular vesicles (EVs); Case Western Reserve University’s demonstration that EVs from SARS-CoV-2-infected cells express the spike protein; and University of Amsterdam Academic Medical Center’s standard operating procedure for using Spectradyne’s nCS1 for quantifying EVs in biofluids. Also, find the answer to an important question for well-controlled particle science: How can I know the concentration of my particle standard?

Find these and other posts listed on our main blog page — Happy reading!



New videos in our library

Recent additions to our video library focus on helping nCS1 users interpret live data to improve measurement quality. Learn the key features of high-quality data, how to identify when the particle concentration is too high, and an overview of the best procedure for loading a cartridge for measurement. Make some popcorn, enjoy the show, and maybe do some learning at the same time!

Recent and Upcoming Conferences & Exhibits


Recent and upcoming conference presentations and exhibits

We’ll be attending the following conferences this fall — in person! Stop by and see us for real or visit our virtual booth if you’re staying remote. We’d love to see you either way!

We hope to see you at one of these in-person events!
