Izon Science Ltd

Izon Science's technology is used in a number of leading universities and research institutions in over 30 countries around the world. The qNano and qMicro instruments accurately and reliably measure particle size, concentration and surface charge. The qEV size exclusion columns are used by an increasing number of life science researchers to isolate extracellular vesicles from complex biological fluids and cell cultures. The size-tunable nanopore-based detection provides a revolutionary non-optical approach to particle measurement. The size, concentration, interactions and charge of particles can be detected with individual particle resolution. Izon is advancing research in a wide range of fields which require accurate particle characterization, including: drug delivery research (drug delivery particles & liposomes), haematology (exosomes & microparticles), and virus quantitation and analysis (gene therapy vectors, viral vaccines). www.izon.com

Izon Science Ltd is the world leading manufacturer of nanoparticle characterization and EV separation tools.

Offering accurate nanoparticle size, concentration, surface charge and zeta potential measurement, the basis of Izon’s instrumentation is a unique, dynamically tunable nanopore technology platform which utilises a technology called Tunable Resistive Pulse Sensing (TRPS)

Established in 2005 in New Zealand, Izon Science has offices in the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific and ships to over 40 countries.

Izon Science has undertaken extensive research and development in partnership with users to ensure that its instruments can deliver accurate, reproducible and reliable data to support your research. Izon’s products are regarded as essential equipment in a wide range of organizations including research institutes, universities and scientific companies.

Izon Science is the developer of the qNano instrument, built on TRPS technology. The instrument offers significant improvements in accuracy and precision over previously available techniques and are helping to advance research in a number of fields including drug delivery, hematology, biomedical diagnostics, and vaccine development. 

Izon Science also created the most rapid and effective exosome, EV isolation system available, qEV. Using qEV takes around 15 minutes to get a pure sample of intact vesicles, significantly purer than is possible with concentration methods as ultra-centrifugation (UC) or precipitation reagent kits. The resulting samples containing extracellular vesicles (EVs) are consistent, standardisable and repeatable, which is required for both research and clinical testing. qEV SEC columns are the new Gold Standard for exosome/EV isolation.  

qEV SEC based separation of exosomes and other EVs offers researchers and clinicians with the following benefits:  

  • Fast isolation of EVs, typically 15 minutes
  • Removes > 99%  of soluble proteins, thus making SEC-isolated EVs suitable for electron microscopy, proteomics, and Western blot
  • Integrity and biological function are unaltered
  • No clumping of pelleted vesicles
  • Standardisable & reproducible (each column is identical and quality assured)
  • Applicable to all biological samples, for example plasma, cerebrospinal fluid and urine
  • Standardised operation reduces pre-analytical variation
  • Easy to use, no technical challenges
  • Reliability proven in large scale inter-laboratory trial
  • Ideal for clinical testing
  • Very cost effective with minimised staff time
  • Quality certified to ISO 13485:2016 – Medical Devices

Izon Science products are used for the isolation and characterisation of biological and synthetic nanoparticles. Our instruments, qNano Gold and qMicro, accurately and reliably measure particle size, concentration and surface charge. qEV size exclusion chromatography columns are used by a growing number of life science researchers to isolate extracellular vesicles from complex biological fluids and cell cultures.
