Wyatt Technology is the recognized leader in light scattering instrumentation and software for determining the absolute molar mass, size, charge and interactions of macromolecules and nanoparticles in solution. Wyatt provides in-line multi-angle static light scattering - SEC-MALS; field flow fractionation (separation with no stationary phase) - FFF-MALS; composition gradients for interaction analysis - CG-MALS; high-throughput dynamic light scattering - DLS; high-sensitivity electrophoretic mobility - MP-PALS; differential refractometry, and differential viscosity.
The ILSI Center for Risk Science Innovation and Application (RSIA) contributes to enhanced human health and well-being by developing new and improving existing methods and evaluations used in risk management.
RSIA is currently engaged in projects on timely issues such as nanomaterial release and characterization, dose-response relationships, and developmental toxicity, to name a few.
The UC Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (UC CEIN) studies the effects of nanomaterials on a range of biological systems in terrestrial, freshwater, and marine environments. From this research, the UC CEIN will design a comprehensive risk-ranking model, based on the potential toxicity, mobility, and persistence of the nanomaterials. With the rapid development of nanotechnology, little is known about the possible environmental, health, and safety impacts of nanomaterials.
