NanoSight Opens Western Region US Office
(Nanowerk News) NanoSight Limited, the nanoparticle characterization company, announced today that Duncan Griffiths has joined the company as Business Development Manager for the Western region of the USA. The company's nanoparticle characterization analysers, which are based uniquely on the visual tracking of nanoparticles, have shown superior performance to traditional analyzer systems, allowing a significantly better understanding of complex dispersions.
In response to increasing global demand for NanoSight’s products and technologies, Duncan will be responsible for leading new business development activities, focusing on industry leaders in the nanotechnology and material sciences sectors.
"I am delighted to welcome a particle sizing professional with more than 15 years of industry experience to our team," stated Jeremy Warren, Chief Executive Officer of NanoSight. "Duncan adds substantial depth to our sales and marketing efforts, as we continue to move toward our goal of introducing this new measurement technology into both the academic and industrial markets. The establishment of a permanent presence in this area will allow us to better service the strong interest we have received from companies in this area, as well as support our existing customers."
Griffiths joins NanoSight from the global characterization group Horiba, where his experience included marketing, strategic analysis and product development. "I am excited to be part of NanoSight, and join the nano-technology revolution in materials," said Griffiths. "We have a strong team, outstanding technology and world class expertise. In addition, the industry has been increasingly recognizing NanoSight for its technology and creativity in new ways of visualizing and measuring innovative nano-scale materials."

NanoSight Ltd, of Salisbury, UK, is the world leading provider of instruments for the optical detection and real time analysis of sub-micron particles. The Company supplies unique instruments for nanoparticle analysis in the sub-micron region that go far beyond existing light scattering techniques in characterising polydispersed systems. The company currently has over 100 systems in service worldwide having begun commercial sales in 2006.
The Company’s proprietary knowledge and expertise has enabled the delivery of technologies to blue chip companies and universities for direct visualisation of individual nanoscale particles in suspension from which independent quantitative estimation of particle size, size distribution and concentration are immediately obtained. The Company has recently launched additions to its advanced Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) software that build on the ground-breaking work of NanoSight’s LM20 and LM10 systems.
The Company has a growing base of users worldwide, including BASF, GlaxoSmithKline, 3M Corp, BP, ICI, Roche & Unilever and many universities.
