Andrew Lyon's Research Featured in Nanowerk News
Atlanta (January 13, 2010) — The School of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Georgia Institute of Technology has chosen the NanoSight LM-20 system to help in the characterization of dimensional changes of nanogels used in the development of drug delivery vehicles for macromolecular therapeutics. The GIT research group of Professor Andrew Lyon works on the development and implementation of new, environmentally responsive (or “smart") materials for photonic materials, bioanalysis, and biomimetics... Principal user is PhD candidate, Michael Smith. He has been very impressed with the instrument. “The NanoSight has been an enabling tool for us in the characterization of dilute nanogel samples, where DLS fails to produce reliable correlation data.”
