Physicochemical Characterization Guides

Liposomes, colloidial metal nanoparticles, and polymeric/polymeric prodrug nanoparticles are among the most common nanotechnology platforms used in drug delivery. To assist developers working with these platforms, the NCL has created an overview of the most critical characterization parameters as well as the techniques most commonly employed. Each nanoformulation is unique; as such, these are not intended to be a universal, standardized approach to characterization. Rather, they are intended to serve as an overview of a minimum set of parameters researchers should consider when developing their characterization portfolio.

Researchers are encouraged to download the above-referenced flyers for use in their own labs. When using these in publications, please cite using the web address and DOI for each respective flyer.
