Avid Nano is a U.K. based SME established in 2009 by Ken Cunningham. The company designs and manufactures dynamic light scattering (DLS) equipment used to characterize the size, distribution, molecular weight and aggregation state of nano-particles, proteins and macromolecules in the 0 - 1000nm size range.
Role in the project
Avid Nano's role in the SMARTNANO project is to design a hyper-sensitive DLS system capable of detecting nanomaterials dispersed in liquids at ultra-low concentrations. The completed system is expected to be ten times more sensitive than existing commercially available equipment.
